Hi,

I've been exporting my images from collections in Lightroom Classic and once the edit is finished it used to re-appear back in Lightroom next to the raw it was exported from. For some reason this has stopped working? It is saving in the same folder as the raw as you can see it when you locate the raw in finder (macOS) via Lightroom. But it doesn't sit as part of the collection anymore? It does show in Lightroom but you have to use folder view to see it.

Not sure what I'm missing here (Perhaps I've been isolating for too long).

My structure is entirely built on navigating in collections.

The way to bring a photo from Lightroom into Photoshop and bring it back automaticaly into Lightroom afterwards is to choose 'Edit in Photoshop' after rightclicking the image, not by exporting them.
Perfect. Thats worked exactly as I need. I assumed it was doing the same thing by doing Command E as it auto opens in Photoshop and saves back to the folders but not the collection. The above worked fine! Thank you Roelof!

Command E is simply the shortcut for ‘Edit in Photoshop’...
