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).
