    Turn off Lightroom auto import of PSD...HOW????

    ticktickatick

      I really need help on this one. I am using Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS6.

       

      I have a folder called


      "Laura and Alexander Wedding"

       

      inside that folder I have two subfolders:

       

      "Raws"

      and

      "Mods"

       

      So it looks like

       

      Laura and Alexander Wedding

           Raws

                IMG_1.CR2

                IMG_2.CR2

                ...

           Mods

                IMG_!.PSD

                IMG_2.PSD

                ...

       

      I import everything in "Raws" to Lightroom.

      I edit IMG_1.CR2 in Photoshop CS6. I right click and select "edit in Photoshop CS6"

      I save as... my edit in "Mods" as "IMG_1.PSD"

       

      After that save, Lightroom automatically imports IMG_1.PSD and everything else in the Mods folder into the Lightroom catalog, even though I never selected the Mods folder for import!!!

       

      I right click on the Mods folder in Lightroom and click "Remove".

      But as soon as I save another raw file, it again adds the new PSD and re-adds the entire Mods folder to the Lightroom catalog.

       

      For various reasons I cannot have Lightroom doing this. I don't want it to add any folders or content to the Catalog unless I explicitly import them. It doesn't matter where I save the PSD...if I edit a RAW in Photoshop and save a PSD of it ANYWHERE, Lightroom takes it upon itself to import the new PSD and the entire folder the PSD is in. HOW DO I TURN THIS OFF? I have searched high and low and have not found an answer.
