- I have a RAW-foto in Lightroom, that I already edited with lightroom tools (Clarity, colour, whitebalance etc.)
- I have to edit some things in Photoshop, so I rightclick and choose "Edit in photoshop) (CTRL+E)
- A version without my lightroom editations openes in photoshop, I do my editations there
- I save the pic in photoshop, and it is imported to my lightroom catalogue as a PSD file, being stacked with the original. - so far so good, now the problem:
- if I select the new and the original version (RAW+PSD file) and try syncing my lightroom editations to the PSD file, the colour changes completely, and there are even some spot removals going through the face of the model, that DO NOT EXIST in the original photo that I´m syncing from!!! WHY!?!?!? I really dont get it..
See the here on my Dropbox for better understanding (for some reason I cannot upload the pics directly here):
Thank you for your appreciated help
TThe sync process you're describing is not how it should work. When you edit in Photoshop with Ctrl-E, Lightroom, should pass the raw file plus the XMP data for your edits over to Photoshop. Photoshop uses its Camera Raw engine to render those changes and you should see a background layer that has all your edits included.
the fact that you're not seeing the edits in Photoshop makes me suspicious that you have an older version of Photoshop (with an older Camera Raw). What version of LR and PS are you using? If you're using an older Photoshop, here,s what to do:
Normally, you'd see a warning dialog box that would give you the option to "Render in Lightrom," but you may have turned this off. To reset, go to Edit > Preferences > General, and choose the button to "Reset all Warning Dialogs."
Once you do that, opening in an older version of Photoshop will trigger a warning that will allow you the choice to "open anyway," or "render in Lightroom." You should choose to render in Lightroom.
Oh my GOD!!! It is solved with one single answer!?
Michael this is really incredibly good, Thank you so much - really great advice
