I changed the smart collection from being photos in a collection, to photos in a folder with specific colormarking and stuff like that. But shouldnt a photo you edit, show up as the new version in the collection you edited it from no matter what?When I edit a photo in a smart collection I always want the latest version (untill I make a mistake and want to start over)
why is it not stacked in a smart collection?
If the new file DOES NOT meet the criteria of the Smart Collection than it will not show up in the Smart Collection. For instance, if you have a Smart Collection that is "File type is RAW" and do an "Edit In Photoshop" of a RAW file from the Smart Collection the changed file is than NOT a RAW file so it will not show up in the Smart Collection. What is the criteria of your Smart Collection.
The Critea was that the photo should be in a (non-smart) collection, and be marked with the color green.
My belief was that the edit should be considered as the same photo, as a stack. It is this in the folder, but not in the collection. So I marked all the photos in the collection with a keyword, and changed the smart collection to look for the keyword, instead of being a member in the collection and then the photo appeared in the smart collection.
I'm still not sure I understand the logic why the photo does not inherit all the properties of the mother photo. I had understood it if I searched for RAW or something like that. But not really here. Never the less I found a workaround with keyword and folder search instead. It works so I am happy. Thanks very much for yoir reply
