First you convert it back to RGB, then you duplicate the layer to the original.

I can give you luts, and you can work in LAB without leaving RGB.

Re: how can i import a duplicate image to my origi

There is a pretty easy way to do this with Smart Objects.

- If needed duplicate the Layer you want treated in Lab Mode
- Turn that Layer into a Smart Ojbect
- Open the Smart Ojbect and convert to Lab mode
- Do whatever adjustments you need in the opened Smart Object
- Save the opened Smart Object (Cmd +S for Mac Ctrl + S for PC) then optionally close the opened Smart Ojbect
- Back in the original document the Lab Layer will automatically have been converted back the the Color mode and Color space of the original document ready to use.

The advantage of this approach is you can always go back and reopen the Smart Object to easily tweek the Lab adjustments you have made if you used adjustment Layers.

Hope this gives you another idea to consider.

You can do it like that.

Bottom layer in LAB. Top layer in RGB.

hi
i guess my english sucks so much that it's incomprehensible

well i try to be more clear

1) i open my photo Sample.jpg , in rgb mode , i add a curve and selective color adjustament layers

2) well i would like to make some edit in lab mode , the most convenient mode is (i guess ) image->duplicate... and ->image->mode->lab

now i have 2 tabs right?
on my left tab my sample.jpg in rgb mode with my curve and so on and on my right mode i have my sample.jpg duplicated in labmode

3) now i start to edit my right tab , lab mode

4) finish my editing in lab mode , i want the image on the right tab (lab) mode in my left tab (that's is in rgb mode)
in short have a layer on my left tab(rgb mode ) with the image edited in lab mode

hope it's clear?
like your screenshot , at lest i'm right i can see the photo on the botton in lab mode and on top the rgb photo
