Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Where Photoshop comes in, part of Working with Raw-Format Photos in Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CC (2013).
So, we've taken a good look at just how far you can go with one image, or many…images using Lightroom's Develop module, but, there's certain things you want to do…in Photoshop. I think the most obvious thing would be…any sort of selective edits, or really precise controls, retouching, restoration,…things like that. Photoshop does that really well.…But there are a couple of other features that are integrated really nicely with Lightroom.…One of those is panoramas, I have these images up here which do not need to be in…sequence, but they happen to be since it was done by date and time, and I'm just…going to Shift-click those to select them. I'm going to Right-click and get my Edit…In option, and I've got a few different options for Photoshop here and one of them…is Merge to Panorama, click on that and Photoshop is going to launch and I'm…going to get this dialog. And almost all the time you are fine with…Auto, I'd encourage you to just leave Auto on, let it Blend Images Together and you…really don't have to hit anything else here.…
In this course, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes explores the art and science of raw-format processing in both Camera Raw and Lightroom. First, take a look at working with raw-format photos in Lightroom, and using the Develop module to improve contrast, color, and tone, which make the details in your images pop.
Then switch over to Camera Raw to optimize raw-format images as well as video. Bryan also draws important comparisons between Camera Raw 8 and Lightroom 5, and shows ways to employ Camera Raw as a filter to layers or Smart Objects in Photoshop CC.
