Lightroom CC bug

  • Problem
  • Updated 3 years ago
I just sent an image from LRCC to PSCC2015. As usual, I right clicked>Edit in PS. In this case I selected Edit Original (I'm dust spotting a negative scan). I did my edits in PS>Save and close. I return to the folder/file in LR and the edits don't show up---not too unusual as it sometimes takes a small amount of time. But this time---no changes. On a lark I look at the image in the Library module and I CAN see the edits. Back to Develop---NO edits...
I'm also now noticing that not all the Develop module edits are appearing in the Library 'version'.

Are you updated to Lightroom CC2015.1? Double check your Help>System Info to make sure you don't need to install this update.

Rikk, I am updated. I restarted LR after I posted above and when it reopened all the edits were applied in all modules. It is still very, v-e-r-y slow in applying PS edits when returning to LR. I'll explore this a bit more today as I work on other files. I'm working on a 2010 iMac w/16GB RAM but maybe it's getting bogged down. Thank you for the reply.

Rikk, don't know if you're still following this but I'm still seeing this issue. Here are 2 screen shots. One from the Library Mod and the other from the Develop Mod. You can see that in the Develop Mod you can still see the dust on the negative yet in the Library the PS edits have been applied.

Try purging your Camera Raw cache in LR / Prefs. Develop may not be going back to the original that has now been changed, but to the cached version of the original before the edits.

It seems to have worked. Thanks. That is one of those things I'd never have tracked down on my own.

In my opinion, and apparently in the LR-cache's "opinion", your LR workflow is not how LR was designed to be used.

Edit Original should only be done if you're doing to save the result as a new image.

LR doesn't ever expect the pixels of the master photo to be changed after import. When the master photo is a raw file they can't be, but since you're dealing with TIFs they can.

In your specific case it kind of makes sense to cut down on duplication and because you're making small, localized adjustments, it's not obvious it shouldn't work, but in the general case it does not make sense.

I mean if you cropped and significantly adjusted the toning in PS and then saved over the top of the original photo, LR probably wouldn't even be able to work with it, anymore, since the dimensions are different and even if you hadn't cropped it, the change in toning would make any toning adjustments in LR incorrect.

You've hit the nail on the head---I don't need or want duplicate files. The 'original' is my negative anyway. I appreciate this insight to how LR and PS work together here. Thanks Steve!
Best regards,
Matt
