I'm using both photoshop and lightrom, usually we use photoshop after lightroom for final tweak / adjustment. but in my case, I have heavy photo manipulation in photoshop that lightroom can't do.

however, after it finished, I feel like I want to adjust again lightroom.
the question is, is it okay? will there be any quality drop or sumthin like that?
any special trick?

So long as you are using RAW or TIFF you should be fine.

what i did is open the raw file in lightroom and right click to choose open in photoshop..and after you are done, and close the raw file and u will be asked do u want to save it..i click yes..and it will be saved as a tiff file, and it will appear to the raw file side by side in lightroom..

then i can do some final finetune in lightroom..

Regardless of the how-to issues, I think if you believe you have to go back to lightroom for something it would indicate you need to learn more about how to use Photoshop. I can't think of any reason to go back that way - I have both and am not dissing Lightroom at all, but its editing functions are a subset of Photoshop's.

Out of curiosity, what is it that you think you want to go back to Lightroom for?

Why not? I go back into Camera Raw sometimes and make a final adjustment. You can always make a copy and then compare the 2 side by side. If it works for you, go for it :)

----------------------------

I don't think using Lightroom after Photoshop reveals a workflow issue.  I manage/catalogue all my images in Lightroom, so once I edit in Photoshop, the tiff goes back into Lightroom.  When I'm ready to upload, I export as a jpg from Lightroom. 

Sometimes after its been to Lightroom and back, I find something I want to fix, say a distant bird in the background that Istock will claim is a hot/dead pixel, and I'll fix it in Lightroom. 

As I'm uploading some of my old istock images, I'm reprocessing some of them and I can lay my hands on all my old raw/tiff/jpgs through Lightroom in a just few seconds.  I'm sure there are other ways to manage a catalogue, but this workflow has been a huge time saver for me.

yes I know it sounds a bit silly, I know the workflow, but to be honest, this image is an old image, that time my skill in lightroom is below basic. N I don't know is there any easy way as LR in photoshop to soften skin, whiten teeth etc...  :-\
