Lightroom to Affinity Photo Not Working

Recommended Posts

When I send a photo to Affinity Photo from Lightroom, the photo transfers just fine. I'll make a lot of changes to the photo then save it to the same folder all the Lightroom photos are in. The sent photo shows up in Lightroom as the second stacked image. Problem is all the changes I made in Affinity Photo don't show up. The photo looks the same as the original - with no changes. The photo has the Affinity Photo file format such as .PSD. What gives??? I can't figure this one out. What am I doing wrong?

 

Thanks

Hi James,

Welcome to the forums.

 

Once you have done editing the image in Affinity, are you selecting Save or Save As? If Save it will write back to the copy made in Lightroom. If Save As, this will create a new file in our file format which Lightroom won't be able to read correctly.

Lee - Many thanks for getting back to me. I did exactly as you indicated. Once I made any changes in Affinity Photo I saved the file and then closed it. BTW, when transferring from Lightroom I created a PSD file. OK, when I saved the file in Affinity Photo I then closed it and switched back to LR. Unfortunately there is another file (the PSD) but it is the original file I sent - no changes showed. I even just let LR sit to see if the file would update. At this point I'm not sure if this is a LR issue or a Affinity Photo issue.
