Can't edit a picture in Photoshop twice

1. Import HEIC file.
2. Edit it in the Photoshop.
3. Edit copy of the edited picture in the Photoshop.
4. Try to find it in Lightroom or import it.

Should Be: The edited picture must appear in the Lightroom.

Actual Result: The edited picture won't appear in the Lightroom. It won't appear even on the import window.

If it won't appear in the import window, that usually means it's already in Lightroom. As it should be. Check the sort order of your grid. The Photoshop image may be placed all the way at the end if the sort order is not by file name or capture date but 'added order'. And check that you do not have an active filter that filters out the Photoshop image, such as a filter on file type.

Let me make sure I understand you correctly. You said you edit a copy of the edited picture again in Photoshop. That means you must get this dialog



Which option do you select?

Does Lightroom see the new image when you use 'Synchronise folder'?

Another thought: Have you tried going to 'All Photographs', and setting the sort to 'File Name'? That will show the images side by side if they are in Lightroom after all, no matter where they are and no matter what other problem may have arisen.

The fact that the original image is HEIC can't have anything to do with this (because you are editing TIFF's now), but perhaps there is a problem with the capture date not being recorded correctly.

Did you already try this? The reason I'm asking is that another explanation might be something known as the 'capitalisation problem'. In that case the image does come back in Lightroom, but it will be located in a folder with the same name but elsewhere in the folder hierarchy. Checking out 'All Photographs' makes it absolutely certain if the image in the catalog or not.

in exporting parameters it should be "added to catalogue"

Hi Dmitry,

I was not able to reproduce this issue.
Could you please share a screen recording of your workflow and share it?

Thanks,
