Are you saving it from Photoshop to a different folder?
You should be saving it to the exact same folder as the original (and you want to do a Save in Photoshop, not a Save As...)
I'm performing a normal "Save", not "Save As". Work flow I'm using is as follows: Select photo in Lightroom 5.7 >" Edit In" Photoshop CC 2014 > (after working on photo is PS) > Save > close PS. Photo returns to Lightroom 5.7 in a new folder rather than next to the original. Prior to purchasing the monthly plan and upgrading to PS CC 2014, I performed this same work flow using Lightroom 5.6 and Photoshop CS6 without any issues.
Just for fun... I attempted to move the edited file back into the original folder. I received a prompt that said the file already existed in the original folder, however I can't see it except the new folder that LR created. I tried several different sort orders, etc without any success.
*** Follow up: Was unable to resolve the issue using Photoshop CC 2014. Uninstalled PS CC 2014 and went back to using Photoshop CS6. Return trips from LR 5.7 to Photoshop is now performing as it should: returning edited photo back to the original folder in LR 5 and placing next to the original image.
Should anyone have a suggestion on getting Photoshop CC 2014 to do the same, I would love to be educated.
Thanks for the help, dj_paige.
Same problem for me. Yesterday. Today, everything seems to be back to normal. I hope it stays this way.
Did you make any changes in either program to get the round trip to perform correctly. As you can see by the post above, I uninstalled PS CC 2014 and just went back to using PS CS6, so that I could get some work done with edited versions returning to LR 5.7 alongside the original. When I had the issue with PS CC 2014 it was creating a new folder with the same name as the original folder and placing the edited versions in that folder. I can't move the edit images back to the original folder because LR won't let me. Gives a prompt stating that the images already exist in the original folder... except that they don't. Or at least I can't see them in the original folder. Is this the type of issues you were having? I'm not sure that I want to re-install PS CC 2014 if it just keeps doing the same thing. What are your thoughts? Any suggestions?
I can't help, because I did absolutely nothing. Yesterday it worked wonky - the same problem you had -, and today it's ok again. There was no upgrading, no change in settings, no nothing.
My images are on a WD MY CLOUD, maybe there was some error connecting, but I don't have a clue really.
All my images were coming from an external HD,so no cloud issues existed. Based on your experience perhaps I'll re-install PS CC 2014 and see if it work do the trick now and keep track along with LR5 of where the file is suppose to go. Thanks.
