LR Classic doesn't handle local corrections with image rotation

This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom Classic 7.3: Graduated Filter Orientation Problem

I've had continuing problems combining local corrections and local corrections. If local corrections are applied and the image is rotated the corrections may or may not move correctly. The problem is also sometimes amplified if I then choose to "Edit Original" when it seems to instruct Photoshop to rotate the image, which then results in a completely ruined Lightroom version since it's not rotated. In those instances I've had to remove the photo from Lightroom and then re-import it and start over.

Can you provide a step-by-step recipe for causing this problem?

Yes.  The problem in general occurs when I "Edit Original" of a PSD with both local adjustments and rotation applied in LR.


Edit a RAW file in LR

Open file in PS, Save in PS

Edit PSD file in LR applying local adjustments

Rotate PSD file in LR

Open Original in from LR in PS

Save PSD in Photoshop

Return to LR to view result. Image is rotated back to original but local adjustment is not rotated or the PSD image retains its rotation but the local adjustment in un-rotated.

I have a series of screen captures but it's too painful to upload them one by one.

I observe screwy but different results:

1. Open a raw in Develop.

2. Do Edit In Adobe Photoshop CC 2018.

3. In PS, do File > Save As, Format: Photoshop. Library thumbnails look like:



4. In LR, open the PSD in Develop.

5. Use the Adjustment Brush with Exposure = -4 to put a mark (the hand-drawn letters "UR") in the upper-right corner.

6. Do Rotate Right.



7. Do Edit In Adobe Photoshop CC 2018, Edit Original.  

8. In PS, do File > Save.

9. Observe the PSD's thumbnail preview in Library is incorrectly rotated from the original raw 180 degrees, with the mark added by the adjustment brush still in the lower-right corner:



10. Open the PSD in Develop and observe that it still appears correctly as it did after step 6:



11. In Library, select the PSD and do Library > Build 1:1 Previews. The thumbnail remains unchanged.

12. Export the PSD to a JPEG and observe that the exported JPEG looks like the PSD thumbnail in step 9.

13. Restart LR. 

14. Observe that the PSD thumbnail is now correctly rotated right 90 degrees from the original, with the adjustment-brush mark incorrectly in the upper-right corner:



15. Export the PSD to a JPEG and observe that the JPEG looks like the thumbnail in step 14.

16. Open the PSD in Develop and observe that it incorrectly looks like the thumbnail in step 14:



LR 7.5 / Mac 10.13.6.
