Hunt’s Photo Education often promotes the idea of using Adobe Lightroom for most basic editing, as the program’s interface for editing multiple images is fairly intuitive and is designed specifically for photographers. Lightroom can do quite a bit, but there are times when Adobe Photoshop can do a better job. But where can we benefit from using Photoshop as opposed to Lightroom?
Our course, Lightroom to Photoshop and Back Again, does exactly what the title says, by starting in Lightroom, then bringing images into Photoshop, and then sending them back to Lightroom. We will begin by making basic changes to the images in Lightroom, then bring them to Photoshop to fine-tune them and make the corrections that we either cannot make in Lightroom or ones that would be easier or better quality to make in Photoshop. Since Lightroom functions as an organizer as well as an editor, we will finish by bringing the images back into Lightroom.
In this course we will learn:
•When and why to use PS over LR
•What are Layers?
•Basic Photoshop workflow
We recommend bringing a laptop for this class with Adobe Lightroom CC Classic and Adobe Photoshop CC installed. Please be advised: Lightroom CC Classic and Photoshop CC are the only versions we recommend for this class. Please make sure they are both downloaded and make sure you can open them prior to arriving. Also, please be advised that Adobe Photoshop Elements and older versions of Photoshop have very different layouts and will not translate as well for this class.
