I was curious if anyone has figured out a workflow that allows you to output sharpen inside PS with PK and then return the print-ready file to LR to print with the excellent features of the LR print module?
I'm using PKS at all stages of sharpening workflow (input, creative, output).
The envelope application for my workflow is LR.
I try to get as much as possible from RAW using Develop module and then export the file as Master in 16-bit TIFF into separate location on disk.
This master file gets re-imported into LR and gets into collection of Master Files.
Then I use "Edit in Photoshop" with "Original" option selected.
At this stage everything that you can't do in LR gets done, including Input and Creative sharpenning, local adjustments, cloning, etc. The file is then saved with all the layers.
LR picks up all the changes you've done automatically (because you've used "Edit in Photoshop").
When I need to print the file at a specific size, I use "Edit in Photoshop" with "Copy" option selected. This way you always keep your master file intact. In preferences I've set up "_Print" suffix instead of "_edit". So the copy of the file gets named XXXX_Print.tif You can rename it afterwards in LR to add size or some other info to file name. (When you work in Folders LR synchronises all changes you make with file system)
In PS this new file is flattened, resized if necessary, all output related tweeks (to improve soft-proof match) and the output sharpenning are applied. The file is saved in this form with output related correction and sharpenning layers.
When you are back in LR all your changes are visible and you can print from LR without sharpenning and resizing.
When you need a different size print, you start with your Master file again and make a new copy via "Edit in Photoshop" - "Edit copy" option.
Hope this helps.
