Hi - I am going back to a previous problem and question about going from LR to edit in PS. Please dont think that I am not reading all I can find about the subject, and I have also tried what kind people suggested to me previously. BUT-I cannot use LR then edit in PS and save as jpeg ready to submit to iS. Any more ideas anyone please?

this is what I usually do, after process the raw file in LR, export a tiff and work on PS, do whatever I want to touch up. clone in PS, save a highest quality jpg to upload to istock.
if the jpg file get rejected, discard the jpg and rework on the tiff file in PS, since I keep original in background layer, touch up in another layer/s, so can I go back to original or rework only on the problem areas.
If I need to re-proecess the raw file with LR, just export another tiff, opne in PS and copy it to the original tiff as a layer, so I able to keep track of what are the editing done on this file.
Hope this help.

After making your initial edits of the RAW file in Lightroom, right click on the image and select the "edit" in Photoshop. Use the option that enables you to edit a copy with Lightroom settings. From Photoshop, hitting save will save a copy back into Lightroom. From there you can export to whatever file type and settings you need. Personally, I have a bunch of different presets created so I can quickly export to the file type and size needed for specific projects.

I don't know about other versions of PS, but in CS2, you can't save 16bit file to jpg. You have to convert to 8bit first.
I personally work on the file in LR, convert to tif, edit in PS, import back into LR and possibly make any final adjustments then batch export via LR.
ETA: I deleted your other duplicate post

Hi Catchlights-thanks for info. As yours was the first reply I have just done exactly what you do. I saved as jepg but in Catalog it is a PSD!!!!! Does this mean a program fault or have I set a preference badly somewhere? What do you think? Regards.

^ Since you saved as a JPEG, are you sure that the JPEG file is not hiding somewhere else on your system? Make a note of where it saves to.

It did save in original location and in the catalog because I mde some stupid, very recognisable changes so that I could find it. BUT it saved in PSD.

Not sure what you are looking for, but i'll guess. When you go to save, make sure you 'save as' not 'save'. Then in the pop up dialog box under file name there is a 'format' setting, set that to jpeg using the drop down arrow.

Ok cool, you could take step by step screen shots of what you are doing and post to see better what's going on and where the problem may be?
