When exporting layered Photoshop documents from Lightroom (using the Export dialog), selecting PSD as the Image Format (in the File Settings section) will export a new, flattened PSD file. To export a layered PSD file from Lightroom and have Lightroom retain the layers, choose Original for the Image Format (in the File Settings area).

When choosing Save As in Photoshop customers typically want to save their files in one of two locations – either back to the folder where the original image resides or, to the same folder that they just saved another file to. For example, you open a file from your trip to Wyoming, retouch it, and want to “Save As” back to the same folder. Or, you open a file from your trip to Wyoming, retouch it, and want to “Save As” to a different, “retouched photos” folder. If you fall into the first camp (saving to the original folder), in the Preferences > File Handling, be sure to check (enable) “Save As to Original Folder”. If you are in the second camp, uncheck the preference and the operating system will take you to the folder that you last saved to using Photoshop.
