What happens: In LR I do my edits (for stacked photos) and apply them to multiple images. I then send them to PS as layers. When I manually align, stack, and save them they work correctly. So I created a basic PS action to select all layers, align, stack, save, and close. This all works great. After it saves it sends it back to LR where I will start the new tif that PS sent back.. and then move on to the next set of images.
Should be pretty straight forward. However after editing all of the photos I realized 80-90% of all of the new files were gone.. not deleted in my recycle bin, not missing stars, not in the folder and unlinked in LR.. just gone like I had never saved it.
So I started the process again and tried to see what was going on. I wasn't able to pinpoint the exact cause or time - but I believe the image deletes or whatever after the next set of images are saved within the action - maybe like the previous tif is being overwritten by the new action. There were a couple photos in the original process that I couldn't run the action on, which makes me think it is that... also because I edited the action and removed the save and close function and so far in my new testing nothing is coming up missing.
