Join Jan Kabili for an in-depth discussion in this video Overview of the raw Lightroom-to-Elements workflow, part of Using Lightroom and Photoshop Elements Together.
- In this chapter, I'll walk you through a round-trip…Lightroom-Elements editing workflow,…starting with a raw photograph in Lightroom.…This movie is a road map of the steps…we'll be following in this chapter.…The workflow in this chapter is the one you'll use…when you're starting with a raw photograph.…But even if you don't shoot raw photographs…and you're more often editing JPEGs, TIFFs, or PSD…format files, the workflow presented…in this chapter is important to understand…because it's the blueprint for those non-raw workflows too…which I cover in more detail later in the course.…
But I strongly suggest that you watch…the movies in this chapter first so you have…the basic workflow under your belt.…The first step in this workflow is to do…your primary photo editing in Lightroom.…And by that, I mean correcting photo qualities…like tone, color, and composition.…Even if you know that you're going to need to take…a Lightroom photograph to Elements…for a specific editing purpose like adding text or graphics,…I suggest that you first do as much photo editing…
