In iPhoto, I had set the double-click editing preference to have an image open in Photoshop Elements 3, but when I saved the edited image as a different name it didn't appear in iPhoto - just the original did. Then I tried editing just within iPhoto but no option appeared to let me create a new filename for the edited image, so I was left with just it and not the original.

Can I edit an image via iPhoto (in iPhoto itself or in PE3), but then save the edited image as a copy so as to leave the original untouched?

If you edit a photo it is saved with the edits but there is an option at anytime to revert to the original. It's better just to create a duplicate, then edit that if you plan to export it.

As for PE3, I haven't used it but the PE3 file extension added might be the problem with not being able to further edit in iPhoto....

You can duplicate the one you edited, and then revert one of them back to the original so you have both...
