When You Should Use Photoshop Over Lightroom
While Lightroom is generally used for cataloging, global edits, and basic local edits and Photoshop is used for more advanced post-processing, there is a definite overlap between the features and capabilities of the two applications. This great video details when you should use Photoshop versus when you can afford to stay in Lightroom.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this helpful video discusses when you should consider using Photoshop versus when you can stay in Lightroom, particularly as it applies to post-processing landscape images. When it comes to editing, you can certainly accomplish anything you can do in Lightroom in Photoshop, plus way more, but a lot of photographers (myself included) prefer to keep everything in Lightroom if possible. I think a lot of photographers are surprised by just how much editing is actually possible in Lightroom, even on the local level. While it will not ever match Photoshop, it is worth taking time to explore the app’s capabilities more closely. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Danson.
