I took a picture with my Canon 5D Mk3 in RAW format. I uploaded the picture to my Apple computer. The picture went to PHOTOS which is the Apple program to edit pictures. Then I went to Lightroom cc and uploaded the picture from PHOTOS. The picture is now in jpeg format.

What happened? Did Lightroom cc convert the picture to Jpeg when uploaded? Did I do something incorrect? Thank You!

If you try to reference the same raw photo in Lightroom and the Photos app it could result in file corruption.

I always place my raw files directly into a folder and avoid the Photos app as Lightroom has more raw tools.

Thank you for your answer! How do I place my raw files directly into a folder? Is this done when I download my pictures from my camera? Is this folder in Lightroom cc or on my computer? Do I transfer the pictures from Photos to a folders? Sorry for my lack on knowledge. Thank You so much!!

How did you “upload” the photo from your camera to computer?

Don’t use the device importer option that pops up automatically on your computer. Use a card reader to mount the SD card like a drive, and manually copy the images to a folder location on your computer.

Apple Photos is a cloud service app that syncs your images with Apple iCloud. You can not import from Photos directly to Lightroom. Copy the photo out of Photos to a new location on your computer first, then import it to Lightroom from there. The best workflow is to avoid Photos completely if you are using Lightroom. You can import to Lightroom from the camera’s SD card, or copy it to your computer from the SD card and then import it from there.
