Round trip Lightroom CC to Other Apps and Back

I’d like to see a more seemless round trip experience between Lightroom CC Mobile and the other mobile apps like Photoshop Fix. It would be a quick way to provide additional features (like red eye removal) without having to build them in from scratch. This would be similar to the Lightroom Classic to Photoshop round trip on my desktop.

If you have a photo open, you click the Share menu > Edit in > Photoshop Fix, then you can edit the photo and then take Save & Return to Lightroom at the top. On iOS, at least! 

What kind of changes to you envisage for a more seamless round trip?

I do like being able to go into Photoshop Fix, but when the image comes back, it is a duplicate image, plus a PNG file, which is confusing. I know Lightroom does not support Stacks currently, and maybe that would help, and some of the tools such as healing being added directly into Lightroom would also help, but I would love to have the image that comes back not be a complete duplicate and a PNG. I’m addition, the PNG file throws you off because you cannot see (by default) the RAW files in Adobe Cloud unless they are in an album. For a moment, I thought I lost the RAW file! Loss of metadata in the new file is a concern as well.

Also, a round trip that would allow us to open multiple images as layers in photoshop mix directly from Lightroom mobile would be a huge plus.
