    Can't get back to original raw file after Lightroom processing?


      My workflow is this:I download from my camera into PhotoMechanic (PM) import into LR, process, export back to PM as a jpeg then upload to various sites.

      Needing to make a large poster I went back into PM for the original which was there but on the original it presented with a  "small box" showing where I had

      cropped it in LR. I Imported what I thought was the original  into Photoshop which showed it as a raw file but it was not the original, it was the cropped jpeg (inside the box) that now opened in PS as a raw file. Can anyone explain it and what I assume I am doing incorrectly or not understanding why I can't get back to the original raw photo.

      Thank you
