- Operating System

My normal process goes like this. Say I have a Lightroom Classic folder containing one RAW file (.nef). I need to edit it in Photoshop. I do so, then save it as a TIFF (or a PSD). When I go back to Lightroom I now see two thumbnails, a .nef and a .tif.
- Tonight I was sent a .jpg file (we'll call it "photo") which I put in a Lightroom folder.
- I then opened the file for editing in Photoshop, something I practically never do with a .jpg.
- I edited the file, saved it as a .tif as I normally would, closed it, and returned to Lightroom.
- Back in Lightroom I found not two, but only one thumbnail! Where could the missing image have gone?
- I decided to sync the folder (which is usually not necessary when I start with a RAW file) and yes, it found a file to add, which I did.
- After syncing there was still only one thumbnail. Bizarre. So I checked Windows Explorer and sure enough two files were in the folder.
- Then I noticed a peculiarity. The filename on the thumbnail said "photo.TIF+jpeg". Huh?
- So I thought it must have stacked the two images. OK, a nuisance, but I'll unstack them. Then I found that no, it had not stacked them.
