But, if you are using Lightroom, why not simply open the images from Lightroom into Photoshop using the Edit In command?
1st of all, thank you Jeff! I knew it was something so simple that I just plain forgot. My bad! I had been going back to older images that I had set up in PS for B&W printing through QTR(I'm on a PC so not able to access QTR through LR) and wanted to try out some newer images that I had worked up in LR. Knowing that I had to do output sharpening in PKS I just started pulling an image from Bridge and opened the image PS and it came in through ACR since it was still a raw file. When the edits I made in LR didn't show up in ACR, I thought I screwed up settings in preferences. Thanks again!
