Photoshop 2020 / ACR doesn't use edited version of my LrCC photos at opening from home screen.

This is VERY strange :



I made obvious edits on a LrCC image directly from my phone (colors/crop).

I usually open/edit from the Lr Photos tab in Ps homescreen.

I saw no difference in the home screen mosaic presentation between 2019 and 2020, but when I clicked (and noticed only later), 2020 says "opening original file", while 2019 said "opening original file + ACR".

2020 starts from original file, no Lr edits on the picture.
2019 starts from edited file from Lr.

I have not found a workaround so far.

it breaks my workflow.

No problems here, and I am on a Mac too. What version of MacOS are you using?

I can confirm, Catalina 10.15.1, Locale En
Thumbnail on the PS 2020 home screen is correct but not the opened file.

I've tested Win10 and Mac 10.14.6 (r2) and am not able to repeat the issue. Image opened is a CR2 raw file with edits.  In both OS's it opens and the edits are intact.

@rikk : strange. Here the behavior is consistent. How could we help tracking the issue ?

Looks like this could be a localization issue somehow, or a Catalina issue. The people who have this problem seem to either use Catalina, or a French keyboard (or both).

This looks like a 2020 bug.  Open a .DNG file from LR Photos in 2019.... Opens the original + ACR.... also, you are able to open as a smart object in Photoshop..... like it should.  Using 2020, you only get to open the same DNG file from Lightroom Photos, and when you go to open as a smart object in photoshop, it does not....opens as a rasterized image. Side by side with new install on both.   Using macOS Catalina...on 4 different machines.
