Some of the time the adjustment can easily be fixed in LR, and sometimes
the adjustment can only be done in PS. I think you answered my issue for
JPEG. If I have a JPEG in my LR collection that has been previously
exported, since later adjustments will be to the LR copy, and not the
exported JPEG, it will not cause further degradation.
Is my understanding correct?
