    Saving PSD from LR

    When a file (including PSD) is opened from LR into CS4 the default saving file is TIFF. Is there away to make PSD as the default saving file.

    At the moment; when I save a file in PS I have to go >save as>save as PSD>save. I have to do this even with a PSD file which does seem weird.

    I just can't go Ctrl+S while working because it saves as a TIFF

    I'm about ready to drop CS4 and go back to CS3. Any comments??

    OK Ian.

    In Lightroom, Go to menu

    Edit > Preferences > External Editor

    In there you need to change the fileformat to PSD. What is happening at present is Lightroom is sending the file to CS4 as a TIFF, and therefore when you finish editing in CS4, the only way to make it a PSD is go File, Save As, cause its a TIFF file to start with.

    So change the settings in LR, and then it will be a PSD in CS4 automatically.
