You can only get that dialog for non-raw images. With raw images if you have the same version ACR and LR it will always directly open.
If you want to edit from zero, just create a virtual copy, and reset its development. Then open in Photoshop. Note that the edits in Lightroom are exactly the same as what you get in ACR.
It is strange since yesterday was working as mentioned and I haven't update anything at all.
Anyhow the virtual copy tip is going to give me what I am looking for so, a million thanks!!
You can also create a virtual copy of the original RAW photo AFTER you've edited it in PS and saved the -Edit.tif version. There's no requirement that you do the Edit In of the VC beforehand.
Thanks for the tips!
Whether you create a Virtual Copy or work from the original RAW file doesn't matter if you have the same ACR version in both LR and PS.
You only get that dialog window when you are sending a RAW file to PS when the version of PS you are using has an Older version of ACR.
And of course you get that dialog box when you send TIFF or JPG file to PS that you have edited in LR.
You guys rock!!!
I have been doing what its been advice and I am feeling comfortable so far, the workflow has change just by a few more clicks so, not a drama...
A million thanks everyone!
