Why does Lightroom always create a new copy of the image whenever I edit the image with a 3rd party plugin? Why not just add an option to let you choose if you want to use the original raw file, supposing that the 3rd party utility can handle raw files?
Shouldn't this be better than creating a new large TIFF file?
A possible reason is that Lightroom won't save the history (steps) of edit that was done by the 3rd party tool. However, if I'm okay with that, what other reasons prevent just editing the raw?
