This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Desktop: Open as SmartObject in Photoshop


I am new to Photoshop and Lightroom CC. I have however been using LR Classic for the past several years. I have learned from LR there is no way to open a raw as a smart object for editing in photoshop. Every PS tutorial I’ve seen/read says I should be opening my raw as a smart object to avoid quality loss in editing. Should I really be disappointed about this if I’m striving for maximum image quality / edits? If so, how is LR so obviously inferior to LR Classic for PS editing? Is there a work around?

I don't want to go back to LR Classic as I would like to use my tablet for editing away from home but only Lightroom CC allows you to edit raws from the cloud.

Thank you
