I'm using Lightroom 3 with a MacBook Pro. When I "edit in ... Photoshop Elements" I'll save the edited file as a JPEG in the same folder as the RAW file. But Lightroom won't see it for me to import it into the catalogue. When I look in a Finder window, I see the RAW file, the PSD file and the JPEG file. But in Lightroom, I only see the RAW and PSD files. Doesn't matter if I try to "copy", "add" or "move", the JPEG isn't visible. The only work around I've found is to save the JPEG somewhere else (desktop) and then to move it during import with Lightroom. What am I missing? Thanks.
When you Edit In ... Photoshop Elements and then do a SAVE (not SAVE AS), the edited JPG is already in Lightroom. No need to import it.
For me, there is an edited TIF file. I guess that is the edited version and it's already included in the catalogue. I had wondered about that. I don't actually edit in Elements all that often. It just confused me when Lightroom wouldn't see the JPG I had created in Elements. I guess from now on, when I need a JPG, I'll just export that TIF file from Lightroom, instead of making a JPG with Elements and then importing it. Thanks!
