- Go to:
Lightroom >> Preferences >> Interface (tab)
For the filmstrip you can chose badged, ratings, picks etc by checking the boxes.
2. Lightroom >> Preferences >> External Editing (tab)
You can choose your settings for how the image opens in Photoshop.
1. If you have reduced the size of the filmstrip too much, the badges will not be displayed.
2. If you have updated Camera Raw to 8.7.1 then Lightroom and Photoshop/Camera Raw are synchronized, and it isn't necessary for you to make the choice. All of your Lightroom edits will transfer to Photoshop.
Problem 1 resolved. I see how to choose the badge, etc.
Although, as Jim suggested, my film strip was reduced too much.
Problem 2. In the external editing tab, I do not see any selection that allows me to choose one of three ways to have photoshop edit the photo.
Jim suggests this is not necessary in Camera Raw 8.7.1. However, I just downloaded the new version.
Thanks Jim. In fact I did reduce the size of the film strip so that the badges were not visible. Corrected.
I just downloaded Camera Raw 8.7.1. The problem, which was not a problem before, occurred with Camera Raw 8.7.0.
I trust you are correct and LR and Photoshop/Camera Raw are synchronized, so that all edits will transfer to Photoshop. HOWEVER, what if I wanted to make one of the other choices previously available to me? I no longer have that option?
You downloaded a new version of what? Lightroom 5.7.1 and Camera Raw 8.7.1 (used by Photoshop) are the current versions. And if the versions are current then that message won't appear. The reason it won't appear is because everything you do to the raw file in Lightroom will transfer to Photoshop.
As Jim says, providing both applications are up to date, camera raw settings will be respected. LR will flag up a synchronization discrepancy otherwise. It’s a good idea to make a choice in preferences of how LR will render the copy sent to CS6 e.g. PSD, tiff; 8bit or 16 bit.
You can go to the preferences screen and reset all warnings. But you still won't get the warning when sending a raw file from Lightroom to Photoshop. You will get it if you try to edit a non-raw image. But when Lightroom and Photoshop/Camera Raw are synchronized there is simply no need to offer that choice. You make the adjustments in Lightroom, and then you want to open the image in Photoshop. Camera Raw is simply used as a conversion tool to convert the raw file to something that Photoshop can work with.
Thank you so much. Problem solved. I did not realize I would only get the 3 options when editing a non raw file.
I tried editing a JPEG, and in fact did get the message to choose one of three options.
Thanks. Problem solved.
I did make the choice as to how LR will render the copy.
Everything now working well!
Also, remember that when you finish your work in Photoshop and save that work it will be saved to a new file. It will be a PSD or TIF image, depending on your Lightroom preferences. Then you can send that image back to Photoshop and you will be given the choices you are looking for.
Sorry! I meant to give you and Jim credit for the correct answer, but once I clicked on "Correct Answer" I was locked out from clicking again.
Please accept my apology.
Can this be fixed?
Yes. I tried this and I see what you are saying. Thanks again!
