When I export my raw photos as jpegs, I always have to go back to the original folder and re-import the exported photos to have them appear in my lightroom classic folder.

Is there a way to automatically have the exported photos appear in my lightroom folder without having to go through this extra step?

Thanks

Is there a particular reason that you would want to import the derived jpeg file when it can easily be created again in LR? Perhaps you might consider virtual copies of your raw images if you want to process an image in several ways? Virtual copies do not take up hard drive space like jpeg files. Something to consider if it meets your workflow needs.
