Photoshop: Non-destructive blur for masking doesn't save correctly anymore

In the recent day's it work for me, so I think only the last update could cause it.
If I use in a common mask the "blur"-function in the property panel PS show's it correct. But if I save it and look in LR for it the blur-effekt isnt present. Also if I save it as jpg from PS or LR the blur is vanished.

PS: if I export one of the recent tif's from LR it works, but if I open it in PS again and save it as jpg, I got the same bug. So old files work and new one's after the update not.

I also found a new bug few days ago. Is it same bug or should I create new topic?

Screencast here: https://youtu.be/X44JZoKRtFU
There is conflict between: Smart filters vs Smart filters blending mode

Photoshop forgets blending mode after reopening blur dialog.

Definitely create a new bug thread with this behavior.

OK as a workaround I downgraded PS to vers. 16.1.1 via TimeMachine and the bug is gone.

A workaround is also to create a composite layer using Ctrl-Alt-Shift-E, save the JPG, then undo.

Yes but the problem remains if you admin and export your work via LR

So then leave the composite layer if you're working in LR, afterwards.

Seriously??? Just tested this and yes, it's broken.

Did you all dissolve the pre-release team, or what?

Yes. I ask in some FB-groups and Win-User have the same problem. First I thought only OSX-User were concerned.

Thanks for entering the bug, Steve. We'll look into this.

The workaround in the meantime is go to Preferences > File Handling... and uncheck Save in Background.

Can you guys test a workaround for me?

Go to Preferences > File Handling... and uncheck Save in Background. Does the files save with the blur correctly?

What about my bug. Is it related? If this topic will be marked as solved and the new version will have my bug... I will create a new topic. :-)

Turn off Save in Background and try to replicate your bug. If it is fixed, then maybe it is related, otherwise create a new bug report, otherwise It'll be two versions later Adobe can fix it.

Great! I have spent a lot of time trying to fix the same issue when the "Density" of the mask is not 100%, until I find that post. Unchecking "Save in Background" solved my problem. Thanks a lot!

I'm having this issue on Windows 10, and I don't seem to have the Save in Background option anywhere.

That might be because you are in Lightroom, and this topic is about Photoshop.

You're absolutely right. It was tagged as Lightroom, and I noticed the issue in Lightroom. I have unchecked it in Photoshop and that fixed the issue. Thanks.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom: Not displaying feather mask correctly.

Lightroom (CC 2015.4) does not preview the TIFF (or PSD) correctly when feathering is used on layer masks.

The shot at the top is in Photoshop (CC 2015.1.2) with a feather adjustment layer to create the eye shadow and below is how the TIFF looks in Lightroom. It also exports exactly the same and has caused a major issue when I've exported all my edits only to find the images I've sent to clients do not look as expected. My only option it seems at the moment is to create a merged copy layer before saving the image.
