There is something I need to try quickly.
Last week I edited one of my Santorini photos in Lightroom, which went fine. I had work to do in Photoshop to finish off the image, which I did, but when I saved the photo it was nowhere to be seen.
Previously, when I saved an image from Photoshop it appeared in Lightroom next to the original image, as a new edited Tif file.
But this time nothing.
I was just about to re-edit the image, when I remembered something I could try.
I selected the import box, and then went to the folder in Explorer where my Santorini photos are. Next I selected New Photos, and there were the two edited Tif files.
When I say two I saved the file a second time and gave it a unique name, but they are both there, out of pure frustration.
I then had to import both photos into Lightroom, but the next problem I encoutered was that I could not move the files to the folder with the other images, as Lightroom thought they were alreay there.
OK - fine - if they are already there I shoud be able to add them to a stack with the original images. But no.
Lightoom would not let me do this as the photos were not in the same folder!
My only option from here was to restart Lightroom. Incredibly frustrating that Lightroom is not able to perform basic tasks.
Such as restarting!
I selected Restart Lightroom from preferences, but all that did was shut it down so I had to start it manually.
And did that work?
What to do next? Rename the file, and try to trick Lightroom. I was going to do that anyway. This worked, after doing this I could move the picture to the correct folder, and then add it to a stack.
All fixed and back to normal.
Now I should not have to do all this nonsense, but I hope that this helps if you have experienced the same problem.
I will edit another Santorini photograph in Photoshop and see what happens and report back.
Is this a new bug in Lightroom/ Photoshop?
The next edit will tell.
I included the image at the top of this post, as I like it.
And this is the image edited in Lightroom. I wanted a bit more sky at the top, as the hill was too cramped for my liking. I also had to remove the dust spots and other nonsense clearly visibile.
