Photoshop for Lightroom Users


Start Using Photoshop with Lightroom

Lightroom can handle a large majority of your image editing tasks plus it’s great at managing and organising your photos. In fact, on most occasions, only a few steps are required to get an image to shine.  There comes a point however, where you will want to do some additional editing that simply can’t be done in Lightroom.

This is where Photoshop comes in. Photoshop offers a greater lever of editing power and it is the tool to use for things like complicated cloning or removing objects from the image, sophisticated retouching, adding text, advanced sharpening, adding artistic filters and compositing multiple images such as replacing a dull sky. 

Many photographers recommend that you use Lightroom as your image management system and as the starting and ending points of your post processing workflow. You then take particular images from Lightroom to Photoshop when you need more advanced editing and retouching tools that Lightroom doesn’t offer.

Lightroom & Photoshop are designed to work together to bring the most efficient and comprehensive editing capabilities you will need. 

Learn how and when to pass your images from Lightroom to Photoshop to take advantage of Photoshops advanced editing capabilities above and beyond the adjustments you make to the images in Lightroom. 


Take your editing skills beyond Lightroom

The advanced editing techniques we will cover in the workshop includes:

  • Removing and moving objects in your images, using Photoshops advanced cloning, healing and context aware tools
  • Combining images in Photoshop, such as replacing a sky in an image
  • Adding creative effects to your image using filters, including art filters, blur filters and special effects filters such as liquify.
