View Full Version : Saving images in Photoshop while they are in use in LW

I just started working in LW after a long break. However I immediately faced a problem. Photoshop wont let me save image(s) while they are in use in LW layout... I dont remember having this problem before. Any solution to this ?

I've had a similar problem, only with tgas.

This is not suprising to me. You open a file in two locations, you can't expect to be able to save it.

Alrite, i will give different image formats a try.. i was saving as TGA.. i recall now in the past i didnt have a problem because i saved as PSD...

This is a bit OT but, u would of thought someone could write a plugin for ps that let it interface with the lw hub to allow painting of textures that are applied to an object so it updates the object as u paint in ps, unless im wrong and there already is one but iv never heard of it :)

I get this problem also.
But find out itīs importend in which order you use LW & PS. Most time I can fix this when I start LW first with the used images and after that start PS to work on the images. Hope that helps.

I've never had a problem saving files in Photoshop while I was texturing in Layout, even with the file in use. The only problem I have with that is that it won't update the file in Layout until I go into the surface editor and manually replace the file. It's kind of a pain but I've dealt with worse things.

Exactly hrgiger. That's what I also do.
It's just one button though. :)
