problem with LR3 workflow
Feb 26, 2011

So here is my workflow process in a nutshell: import RAW, edit RAW to my liking, export RAW to new folder as JPEG for commercial applications. The kicker: when I go back into LR3, my edits to the RAW image are (at random times) not saved!!! What causes this and how do I fix it? The weird thing is that I just went through my workflow with an image, exported it, came back into LR3 and my RAW file DID retain the develop edits. So it seems like, at some random time, LR3 decides to just clear out the edits I've made to my RAWs. I've gone back to images I've developed in previous weeks and there is my original unedited RAW file next to my exported JPEG. What am I missing?

It's super frustrating because I have to start all over with my post processing for that image. Sure, I have the edited JPEG, but what if I want to edit it again or add a watermark or something like that...please help!?!?!
