So you are going want files in Bridge and mini-Bridge to reflect the changes…that you have made in Lightroom.…But by default they will not.…So let's take a look at what Bridge sees when you make a change to a photo in…Lightroom, and then talk about how you can improve the communication between the two programs.…So here in my Lightroom Library I have a number of photos.

In this course, photographer and author Jan Kabili shows how to combine both programs. The course begins with details on how to set up the two programs for maximum compatibility.

The final chapter demonstrates several real-world scenarios for using Lightroom and Photoshop together.
- Setting the Lightroom preferences for editing in Photoshop
- Passing photos from Lightroom to Photoshop
- Handling software version mismatches
- Viewing and organizing Photoshop-edited photos in Lightroom
- Creating Lightroom presets for external editing
- Using Lightroom with Photoshop Elements
- Building a panorama with Lightroom and Photoshop
- Passing multiple photos to Photoshop for compositing
- Sending photos to Photoshop for retouching and removing content
