I put this in L3 for mac forum but will add it here also.
Edit in flex (Eg in Lightroom)>Do editing>Click apply>Edits are burned into tiff file, and no chance to go back and adjust later - or create a different version of the same edit.
I would like:
As well as the apply button, a save button.
Clicking save would do the following: copy the unedited TIFF file to a new name (eg name_flex) and create a LMNR project file with that same name in the same folder as the TIF file. It would also burn edits into the original TIFF
Next time that TIFF (or the name_flex version) is sent to flex for editing, flex looks for the TIFF / LMNR file pair named name_flex. If so, this is opened instead, and edits applied to the original TIFF file, and stored in the LMNR file as described above.
If on subsequent edits (if the name_flex files exist), the Apply button should behave the same as the save button as described above.
Optionally, a remove _flex files button could be provided to delete both the copied TIFF and LMNR files after burning all edits to the original TIFF.
EDIT - rather than two buttons, it could simply be an option within Flex to operate in non-destructive mode - in which case the apply button always creates and uses the _flex files.
