Lr dam

I have a question for Andrew Rodney. After he does his basic corrections in LR, I am sure he takes some of his pictures into Photoshop for additional optimization. Subsequently, does he simply quit and allow the picture to go back into LR along side the original RAW file (and any virtual copies), or does he "save as" and put these Photoshop-optimized pictures in another location? I do the former, but have noted that the process slows way down (all my pictures are on an external drive). It also makes backing up the PSD versions difficult, at least to me. The original RAW files are backed up during Import, but how does he then back up the PSD corrected photos?

Re: Lr dam

Edit in Photoshop renders an iteration as a pixel based document (I use TIFF). That is then stored into the DAM by default when using “Edit in Photoshop”. Since the edited TIFF is saved in the same folder structure and location as its original raw cousin, when I backup, the TIFF gets updated (backed up) as well.

If you used the Export instead, the iteration (TIFF) is saved where you ask the Export dialog to save that document. Its not updated in the DAM (unless you ask for this). So there is one of the bigger differences between Edit in Photoshop vs. Export.
