If you make changes in the Develop module in the Lightroom 5 Beta and then choose to edit that image in Photoshop you will want Lightroom to render the PSD/TIFF file, not Photoshop (otherwise the Develop module changes will not be applied because Photoshop CS6’s version of Camera Raw is older than Lightroom’s).

In order to make sure that you have the option to choose between Lightroom and Photoshop, choose Preferences > General and click the “Reset all warnings dialogs” button. Note: if this button isn’t available – then the warning dialogs are all at their default settings). Then, choose Photo > Edit In > Edit in Photoshop. A warning should appear: “This version of Lightroom may require the Photoshop Camera Raw plug-in version 8.1 for full compatibility”. Since Lightroom 5 is in Beta, this version of Adobe Camera Raw is not available for Photoshop CS6, so choose the “Render using Lightroom” option. Now Lightroom 5 Beta will render the file and hand it off to Photoshop with all of the changes you have made.

    Hello Julieanne,

    I have been following you for quite some time and you have been so helpful more times than I can say!

    Do you happen to know if a bug in LR 4 has been fixed in LR 5 which is the Slideshow displays a black screen about 85% of the way through the show. In addition the Fit To Music is never accurate. I use LR 4 on a Mac running 10.7.5.

    I know this may not be the right forum to post this but I can’t seem to find any help on this bug.

    Thank you so much,

      Hi Craig — Are you up to date with Lightroom 4.4? Have you tested this with Lightroom 5 beta?

      Has this always happened for you?
      If you update to 4.4 or 5 beta — please record a video screencapture of the problem you’re seeing and post it on our feedback site so we can look into it:

    Hey Julieanne!
    The render using Lightroom (5) Dialog is not available when I choose Multiple Files and want to merge to HDR Pro.
    If I say open anyway, well they won’t.
