Hello all,

 

I'm trying to send a photo back to Lightroom from Photoshop but when I go to the share arrow top right, Lightroom is there but isn't highlighted for me to click on. Yet I exported the picture from Lightroom to Photoshop without a problem so the two programmes are connected. Any advice would be gratefully received!

You're not supposed to do anything, not share, not export. Those are for different purposes.

 

When you "edit in Photoshop" from Lightroom, and save the file from Photoshop, a background script tracks the file throughout the process and automatically adds the resulting file to the Lightroom catalog. So you see it in Lightroom.

 

A lot of people misunderstand this and think that the file is actually "sent to" Lightroom. That's not how this works. Nothing is "in" Lightroom. The Lightroom catalog is just a record of where the files are out on your disks. It's a collection of library cards - this file is here; that file is there.

 

So you just Save the file from Photoshop. That's all you do. It will then appear in Lightroom.

 

One important note: Lightroom has to remain open the whole time, until you have saved the file from Photoshop. If you close it, the script stops, and Lightroom doesn't know about the file. You can still import it later; but it doesn't happen automatically.
