How is this done in LR? Will the editing I do in PS be reflected back into the non-destructive editing of LR or is this process similar to what Aperture does?
Because of the way PS works your edits in PS are " fixed " and have to be "saved " but with a LR / PS combination, you can choose how your edits are saved; they can be PSD or TIFF or I think even jpeg but the original RAW file is not changed you can stack the PS edit with the LR edit
Hope this makes sense
as mentioned, many times before, Matt K at Kelby training has some excellent videos on this

@ jonnyappleI use LR 4.3.....seems to work, but I have to use the clone tool to do this stuff with the cat. But, I have to be very careful because my cat is sensitive. And this means if I irritate her (read an explicative into this if you like) I get a present...like a dead mouse, chipmunk, live bird, etc., and it is delivered into the house through the cat door.So, I have to fiddle in LR with dogs only, but be careful my kid's Pit, Cane Corso/Pit mix and Rottweiler do not see me. The dogs are much more direct with their comments.@ BabaGanoush Excellent point... I will use duplicate images in some cases so as to be able to examine the original edited image in one program to the results of another.
This was what I was looking for....a lot of great input and help. I seen some reviews complaining about importing/lossing files and and was a bit worried about it, but this out helps greatly. Thanks everyone for your thoughts and suggestions!!
My D800 arrived a couple days ago and I've been playing. This thing is fantastic! Took a shot and not realizing it until I downloaded them onto my laptop, but the shot picked up the water droplets off the pine needles.....I have a long way to go with mastering this rig but it's going to be a fun ride.
Mike I agree,Any professional photographer should have a good understanding of, how Photoshop works, what it is capable off , and the difference between PS and LR. They need to be aware of the tasks that are better carried out in PS rather than LR But PS is a huge and very complicated program . If major retouching or manipulation is required, IMHO this is best left to the photoshop professionals
Mike I agree,
"15. Leave computer on to perform a Time Machine backup to an external hard drive automatically."Can't you get Lightroom to copy your files to the external drive during import?
