I LR you choose "Edit in Photoshop"
You edit in Photoshop and do save (not save as) and close it.
LR imports the copy automatically.
Intensively learning PS CS6 this weekend after working with LR4 for a year. When working on files in LR4 and using plugins, the file (TIFF) always reverts back to LR4 so additional editing can be done.
When I start in LR4 and then edit in PS, after choosing "save as" TIFF, I specify a file on my desktop it is saved to. I do rename it an all together different name but can't get LR4 to import it so I can do additional edits. It states "this photo is already in the catalog."
Is there a way to jump from LR to PS and back to LR as I do really prefer the LR interface to work in?
