This book shows photography students how to use these two great products together to achieve results they could not have produced working with one alone. First, the book provides a quick overview of the cataloguing functions of Lightroom -- useful for Photoshop students who may have used a different photo organization tool (or none at all!). This is followed by an introduction to the basic Lightroom-Photoshop workflow. Then the reader works through a series of projects that focus on taking images from Lightroom into Photoshop to use tools not available in Lightroom. Typical workflows include fixing common photo problems (like blur caused by camera shake), bringing out important details or adding creative effects with adjustment layers, or layering images to create composites (including adding text or 3D objects), or doing precise photo retouching.

Using Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC together can dramatically speed your workflow and decrease editing time. This book teaches you exactly when to use each program and how to pass images back and forth between them at the highest possible quality. You'll learn how to import, organize, correct and add creative colour effects in Lightroom using global and local editing tools, as well as how to merge multiple exposures and stitch panoramas. In Photoshop, you'll learn practical techniques for combining photos, pro-level retouching, creating precise selections, masking, turning a photo into a painting and pencil sketch, and adding creative blur effects. Back in Lightroom, you'll learn how to show off your masterpieces by exporting them en masse, sharing via social media, creating fine art-style signed print layouts, slideshows, photo book, and web gallery projects.
