Most common work flow for me is importing to LR, then (edit in photoshop), then once work is done in PS 'save' which takes the new TIF back to LR.

Now PS keeps getting stuck at 99% when saving..and i'm wasting all the time editing because I have to FORCE QUIT PS. Help.

Hi there,

Sorry to hear that Photoshop is freezing while saving the file back to Lightroom, could you please let us know the versions of Photoshop & Lightroom you're working with?

 

Also, could you please try enabling "Legacy compositing" located in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance, then relaunch Photoshop and let us know if it helps?

 

Regards,
Sahil

I have same issue... Macbook Pro, which just updated to Catalina OS working on raw files in lightroom (.nef) export to photoshop cc 2020, I can edit but when I save the (.tiff ) to go back to lightroom it freezes at about 98% and I end up having to force quit photoshop. I tried the legacy compositing and no difference 😞

I tried going back to photoshop 2019 but same issues there. All started when my computer updated to catalina OS and the photoshop update, same evening and I can't revert back to the older OS.

Thanks for any tips / help!

I just want to add that I have the exact same issue.  I'm using a macbook pro with Catlina 10.15.1 and running the latest releases of Photoshp and Lightroom.  When I save back to Lightroom, Photshop freezes the save forcing me to do a force quit.  This is a major issue for my workflow.

the problem with flattening of course is you lose your layers...doesn't seem like a great solution

Is there a way to reformat w/out erasing?  I'm not that tech savvy but can follow instructions 🙂  I import and keep all my photos on a SanDisk external drive.  I started to follow the instructions to reformat and when the step said "erase", I assumed it would in fact erase all my photos...?????
