    HELP - Issues with external edit in lightroom cc

    heatherb28013950 Level 1

      Hi!  I'm relatively new to lightroom and this was working but now isn't & on both of my mac computers so I'm stumped.


      I have preferences set to open external edits as tiff in photoshop cc.


      When I right click a jpg & choose "edit" - it doesn't matter which of the 3 options I choose lightroom creates a second jpg and opens it in photoshop... when I make changes & go to exit - it brings up a save as box.... I can either hunt for the jpg & lose my photoshop data (end photo is right obviously) or save as psd/tiff but then I have to import it back into lightroom....


      I just processed a whole bunch of mixed raw/jpg photos & I swear this worked for all of them.  This is a jpg not a raw but that's the only difference & I am pretty sure I had jpg's in the last bunch I edited.


      So frustrated!


      Attaching my external edit preference box & also a view of the file lightroom creates when I try to edit in photoshop.
