Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Compositing with selections and masks, part of Using Lightroom and Photoshop Elements Together.
- Now we come to the really fun part of the course…where we take the principles…that I've been showing you in earlier chapters…about how to use Lightroom and Elements together…and apply those principles to some typical use cases…where you will use the two programs together.…The prototypical example is where you have multiple photos…that you're managing in Lightroom…and you want to combine those photos…into a collage or a composite.…Here I have a photograph of a model…and next to her in Lightroom's library…I have a photograph of a blurry city.…I'd like to combine these so…that this city becomes her background.…
Now, I can't do that in Lightroom.…In Lightroom you can't access layers…and you can't make composites.…So, I'd like to take these two photos from Lightroom…over to Elements to do that.…Before I do I'm noticing that the model is warm or gold.…The background is cool or blue.…To make a more convincing composite…I'd like to try to match those colors a bit more.…So, I'm going to take the model…into Lightroom's develop module…
In this course, photographer and author Jan Kabili shows how to combine both programs. She begins with details on how to set up Lightroom and Photoshop Elements for maximum compatibility. The course then covers strategies for working with photos in a variety of formats (including raw), and practical scenarios for using Lightroom and Photoshop Elements together. Learn how to composite multiple photos with layers and selections, retouch portraits, and add creative effects and text to photos. Want to move to Lightroom permanently? Jan also shows how to upgrade a catalog from Elements to Lightroom.
