    Some Export Settings not Saving (to Photoshop / windows preview)

    onlinefun

      I am new to lightroom 4. Also using Creative Suite 5

       

      I want to export images for further editing in Photoshop so I figure I am supposed to export and keep in the Original format in output settings.

      I have also tried DNG with similar failed results.

       

      Photos from from Canon Rebel T3i, shot in raw (cr2)

       

      When I export in the original format:

       

      1.  the preview in Windows Explorer shows the original image, no brightness changes, and no rotation, nor cropping, nor color balance, etc...   I believe I am using a standard RAW preview plugin by Microsoft.  This is the the big issue, but definitely an annoyance

       

      Bigger issue is when I open that file in Photoshop, the crop and rotation and color balance have been applied, but the brightness has not changed.

       

       

      When I export as DNG:

       

      2. The Windows Preview looks correct, but again, the brightness settings are lost in Photoshop.
