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

That’s No Moon! How to Add the Death Star to your Photos

If you enjoyed my Death Star image post, here’s a quick tutorial on how I did it. All you need is Photoshop and some layer blending prowess. Should Ewoks disable the shield generator, however, you’re on your own to defend it. The same technique works with overlaying images of the moon on cityscapes.
