Thank you. I am not sure if it could be considered a bug. I am so new to HF that I may have done something wrong. I will play further to make sure.
I am coming from Lightroom 4 where my workflow worked well for me e.g.
1.import pics to an “originals/[subfolder date]”
2.assess duplicates and unacceptable shots and delete all unwanted
3.edit remaining images and export to a gallery folder for viewing.
Any edits are non-destructive but the original image, viewed in LR, shows the history and effects of the edits via the .xmp sidecar.
With HF I can do much the same except that No. 3 “export” is done by the “save as”. This presents a frustrating problem - the edits to the image are lost. Also, I cannot tell at a glance which images have been edited. I tried the green quick save but I consistently got caught out by forgetting to quick save before selecting the next image (see my other thread).
If the “save as” dialogue included a “quick save” option (to save the original in an “originals” subfolder and retain the edits), this would be OK (my workflow would be different but acceptable).
However, either way, some sort of tag/icon to show which shots have been edited, would be a great help.
I really do like many aspects of HF. I have compared images developed in LR and HF often produces the better result. Particularly appealing is the excellent cloning tool which is missing from LR.
