    Just wondering if anyone knows how to do a round trip from Lightroom to Photoshop then back to Lightroom with the same photo? I tried with some instructions that I found online, but it didn’t work.

    While in Lightroom, right click on your photo and a task bar will pop up. Click on “edit in” and another side bar will appear. Click on “edit in Adobe Photoshop” and it should automatically open Photoshop with that picture. After you’ve made your edits in Photoshop, just go under “file” and click “save” or simply hit “ctrl-s” to save your work. Once it’s saved, go back to Lightroom and you should automatically have a copy with the changes you made in Photoshop applied.

    Yup, Dan cope has got it. It will save as a TIFF if my memory serves me. That’s the beauty of Adobe products- they tend to play very nicely together.

    Thanks for that, @dan-cope. It worked! 😀 You’re right @nasa. It’s a Tif.

    One other quick question. When I’m in Lightroom I have it opening on 2 screens, which I don’t want. I know that I’ve pressed some button turning on the setting somehow, but I can’t work out how to turn it off. Does anyone know?

    You’re welcome! Glad it’s working for you!

    I’m assuming that you have inadvertently clicked on the icon for the before and after comparison mode. Notice the area I’ve circled on the attached photo. The two “Y’s” denote the before and after mode which will show your photo in two separate windows, one for the original photo and one for the edited photo. Click the icon just to the left of the two “Y’s” and it will bring you back to the single window mode.

    Hmmm. . . That didn’t work unfortunately, @dan-cope. I have 2 computer screens and basically Lightroom is open on one screen and then on the other screen the picture I’m editing is blow up really big and has a few buttons on it, but nothing much. I can’t look at anything else on that screen while I’m doing stuff in Lightroom. Sorry, I might not have explained it properly! 🙂

    Try playing with the Dual Display options (see attached). You probably accidentally hit “F11” which toggles the second window on and off. (Also, Window > Second Display has more options.)
