How do I locate in Lightroom photos I've edited in Photoshop CS5? Saving a file in PS stacks an image with the master file in LR (1 of 2, 2 of 2, etc), but LR does not display the edited version, only the master. Got solutions?

So, if you see the stack (1 of 2, 2 of 2) and Lightroom does not display your derivative, what is that "2 of 2" then?

If you're starting point when you use "Edit in" is a Folder View or All Photographs, then yes you should see the derivative appear alongside....provided of course the sort order is set correctly (e.g. capture time should work, added order probably won't).

If, OTOH, your start point is a collection, e.g. Quick Collection or Previous Import, then you WON'T see the derivative'll be in the catalog, just not in the collection.

If your starting point is a Smart Collection then you MAY see the derivative if it meets the collection criteria.
