You're also welcome to download our free Lightroom Quick Start eBooks and explore our other FAQ resources.
  • The May 2019 Lightroom updates are now available. There's a brand new slider called Texture, available across the whole family of apps. Lightroom Classic includes a new tool called Flat Field Correction. Lightroom (cloud-based service) has lots of big improvements including cloud trash, invitation-only web galleries, improved chromatic aberration removal and more. The Missing FAQ and Edit Like a Pro eBooks are already updated for the changes. You'll also notice the CC's have disappeared off the end of the names, so we've updated the forum names to match.

When an LR images goes to PSCS3, it creates a .tiff file. Nice. When I come back to LR, the file is named xxx-Edit.tiff. This is ok, but I'd like to keep ALL editing info in the LR files.

Can =ALL= changes done in PS be applied to the .nef (or if need be, a .dng) files so I have ONE MASTER file? If so - how is this done?

There's a really easy answer to that and it's..... No. Sorry!

Lightroom stores metadata - which can be written in a text file. Photoshop pushes pixels around and therefore has to store specific pixel data in an image file (not a raw file).
