The Photoshop Techniques Every Lightroom User Needs To KNow

Live Training Sunday, October 20th

12-3pm Eastern Time


While Adobe Lightroom Classic is a powerful image editor and workflow management tool in its own right, there are certain things that it cannot do. To go beyond Lightroom, you need a pixel editor such as Adobe Photoshop.  In this class, I will teach you how and why to utilize Adobe Photoshop alongside Lightroom.  I will present a coherent Lightroom/Photoshop workflow strategy and take you through the features of Photoshop that every Lightroom user should know, including:

  • How to prepare images for Photoshop in the Lighroom Develop Module
  • Sending images from Lightroom to Photoshop
  • Understanding Layers/Adjustment Layers/Layer Masks
  • Cloning/Healing/Content Aware Fill Tools
  • Adding text to your images
  • Using Plug-in software in Layers and as Smart Filters
  • High-Pass Sharpening
  • Working with RAW Smart Objects in Photoshop
  • How to finish Photoshop files in Adobe Lightroom

January Online Classes: Get to know Adobe Photoshop
