Great question from a #Cazillion on working with photos in Lightroom and Photoshop.  What should the workflow be?  How do I keep track of the photos?  Check out my video!

Hi Greg,

After I have finished editing my images in Lightroom, I export them to Jpegs. I then further edit my files (clone stamp for example) in CS5. What is the best way to watermark in this situation? My images are not 'complete' until after the Photoshop phases.

Does this bring up another issue/question? I know you predominantly use lightroom, as do I, but if you need to use Photoshop, how do you do this? Am I right in saying you can edit in Photoshop through Lightroom? I'm sure I've seen you do this in an old 'RAW edit' video? If so how?

Thanks Greg, I hope you can find time to answer my question.

I have never used the PDF conversion, but I am going to work with it and see how I like it. The video remarks make sense and I like the idea of working with a smaller file size. I work a lot with Topaz and I am interested in how they might interface, I know it will work with PS...thanks for an interesting video.

Greg,thank you so much. Some follow on questions: To what do you set your Photoshop color space, ProPhoto to match LR? Also, what relationship does any of this have to your montor's color profile. I had a corrupted monitor profile and solved it by changing the default to sRGB IEC61966 – 2.1. While this seems to have solved the problem, not sure if that was the right/best thing to do.

I have lightroom 4 and can't find any of those export settings your showing above?
