When I use Lightroom and use the command to edit my RAW files in Photoshop and then save and close Photoshop, then Lightroom loses the locations of my files.
Indeed, in my test, the original RAW file that I edited was located on my NAS server in "/Volumes/home/something-private/Photos/original/_DSH4794.NEF". Photoshop successfully saved the new edited file in the same folder as "/Volumes/home/something-private/Photos/original/_DSH4794-Edit-2.tif" but Lightroom was looking for it in "/home/something-private/Photos/original/_DSH4794-Edit-2.tif".
It seems Lightroom is pulling off the beginning part "/Volumes" of the file path and I have to tell Lightroom where the file really is for it to rebuild the link. Any idea how to fix this?
I am working with the following configuration:
- Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.5
- Home made NAS server (freenas) for storing all my RAW files
- Lightroom version: CC 2015.2.1
- Adobe Photoshop Version: 2015.0.1
On 2015-12-08, it is still the same problem with Lightroom version: CC 2015.3 and Adobe Photoshop Version: 2015.1 unfortunately!
I did further testing after reading a message on another forum (LR loses file locations after I edit in photoshop on my iMac - Lightroom Forums) and I found out that the problem was caused by the name of the AFP share: home. It seems Lightroom and/or Photoshop does not like AFP shares named 'home' when it comes to perform an "Edit in Adobe Photoshop CC 2015...". I renamed my AFP share to 'nashome' and it is working now.
The cause has been found and there is an easy workaround but the problem is still to be fixed by Adobe now!
