Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is the most important app in any photographer’s workflow 3 Reasons All Photographers Should be Using Adobe Lightroom 3 Reasons All Photographers Should be Using Adobe Lightroom A lot of people aren't quite sure where Lightroom fits into things. It's an image editor… but it's not as good as Photoshop? Here's everything explained. Read More . It’s the hub from where everything else happens.

Once you’re home from shooting, the first thing you should do is import the RAW files (you are using RAW, aren’t you? RAW Files: Why You Should Be Using Them for Your Photos RAW Files: Why You Should Be Using Them for Your Photos Almost every article featuring advice for people just learning photography stresses one thing: shoot RAW images. Here's why that's good advice. Read More ) into Lightroom. It’s the start of any good workflow. In Lightroom, you can automatically backup your images, sort through and pull out the great shots, add tags and other metadata, correct for any camera or lens issues, and start the development process.

Although Lightroom’s editing tools are a little simpler than Photoshop’s — which we’ll come to in a minute — it’s still a professional editing app. If you only want to make adjustments to tone and contrast, without dramatically altering the data in the image, it’s the best app to use. With the latest updates to the Creative Cloud, Lightroom can even merge panoramas and HDR photos Get Perfect Landscape Photos Using Exposure Blending Get Perfect Landscape Photos Using Exposure Blending Uneven landscape photos getting you down?

Even if you’re actually doing most of the editing in another app, Lightroom’s role doesn’t stop once your photos are imported and sorted. Once you’re finished making changes to your images in Photoshop or one of the many Lightroom plugins available, they’ll be sent back to your Lightroom catalog. This means all the original files and edits are stored together. You can see exactly what changes you’ve made to each file and, as long as you’ve stuck to non-destructive editing 5 Easy Ways to Improve Your Photoshop Skills 5 Easy Ways to Improve Your Photoshop Skills There are lots of easy ways you can improve your Photoshop skills. Here's a closer look at five simple tips. Read More , go in and modify anything you’ve done.

Lightroom’s powerful export engine makes it the best way to save out your photos. Whether you’re looking to send a CMYK TIFF file to a professional printer, run off a few images on your home printer, or just save out a low-res JPEG for Facebook, Lightroom has the tools to do it right. And as with everything in Lightroom, it does it without affecting the original files.

Adobe Lightroom for Mobile

Lightroom is no longer just available on PCs and Macs. Adobe Lightroom for Mobile is a companion app for iOS and Android devices. You can sync photos between the desktop and mobile apps. Any changes you make on one will be synced to the other. If you’ve just shot a few thousand photos, syncing them to an iPad and sorting them while you fly home is a dream.

Lightroom for Mobile isn’t just a photo viewer — most of the desktop’s editing features are available. If you want to brighten up a photo, convert it to black and white, add some split toning, or even perform some simple local adjustments, you can do it on the go. And again, all the changes are synced back to your main catalog so they’re there waiting for you when you get home.

Adobe Photoshop

Photoshop is Adobe’s defining product. It’s so popular that its name is now a byword for image editing. It’s the app that many people are signing up to the Creative Cloud just to get. There’s a lot you can do with Photoshop What Can You Actually Do With Adobe Photoshop? What Can You Actually Do With Adobe Photoshop? Photoshop can now do a lot more than just edit photos; some of the tools from programs like Illustrator have made their way into the software and vice versa. Read More but its main purpose is editing images and it gives you all the tools you need to do just that.

Almost every image you see on a billboard, in a magazine, on a major website, or out and about in the world has passed through Photoshop at some point. It’s hard to overemphasize how universally it’s used by professional image editors. It’s the gold standard GIMP vs Photoshop: Which One is Right for You?

If you’re a photographer, Photoshop picks up where Lightroom leaves off. It’s the app you use if you want to do major pixel pushing.

If you’re looking to restore an old photo How to Easily Restore an Old Family Photo Using Photoshop How to Easily Restore an Old Family Photo Using Photoshop Everyone has old family photos lying around. Sadly, they’ll probably be discolored, faded, scratched, or bent. With Photoshop, you can make them look as good as new.

We should you how with this easy-to-follow free Photoshop tutorial. Read More it’s the best choice by far. Every photographer, whether they shoot landscapes, portraits, or anything else, can find a use for Photoshop in their workflow. Landscape photographers can blend multiple exposures to create the perfect scene while portrait photographers can remove blemishes, smooth skin, and enhance the beauty of their models. It’s the Swiss Army knife of editing apps.

Adobe Photoshop Fix and Mix

Just like with Lightroom, Adobe hasn’t ignored mobile. Photoshop Fix and Photoshop Mix brings some of Photoshop’s powerful tools to iOS devices.

Photoshop Fix is designed for fixing images. It has tools to remove spots, dodge and burn, adjust color and contrast, and liquefy your photos. It’s perfect for retouching any portraits you shoot with your iPhone.

Adobe Photoshop Fix and Mix Screenshot

Photoshop Mix is the best way to create composites on your iPhone. It has a load of great Photoshop features like layers, masks, blend modes, and opacity so you can combine different elements into one great, final image.

Any work you do on your iPhone isn’t stuck there. You can export the images as JPEGs or, with Creative Cloud Sync, send them back to your desktop so you can continue to work on them.

Adobe Portfolio and Behance

There’s no point having a load of great photos if you never share them with anyone. As part of the Creative Cloud, you get your own hosted portfolio website.

Adobe Portfolio provides everything you need in a portfolio website. You start with one of six great layouts and customize things from there. You can sort images into projects, add other pages, and even use your own domain name. If you want a simple way to get a photography website off the ground, Portfolio is a great way to do it.

Adobe Portfolio Screenshot

Even better, Portfolio also automatically syncs all your work to Behance, which is described as “the world’s largest platform to showcase and discover creative work”. Creative directors regularly comb Behance for ideas when they’re looking for new talent to work with. If you want to get your work somewhere people can find it, Behance is the place.

Adobe Spark

Adobe Spark is a new service for creating content for social media. It’s a simple way to turn your images into social graphics, web stories, or animated videos. It’s split into three different iOS and web apps.

Spark Post is for creating social graphics. You can take a photo, add text and great looking filters, and even animate it to create a shareable image. If you’ve ever wanted to create your own motivational post for social media, it’s the way to do it.

Adobe Spark Screenshot

Spark Page is for longer stories; the sort of thing that doesn’t fit in just one post. Let’s say you’re just home from a trip and want to share all the wonderful photos you took with your friends and family. With Spark Page, you can create a beautiful magazine style web story with all the images and enough text to give them context. They won’t have to click through Facebook’s badly designed albums again.

Sometimes a post or a web page isn’t enough. When you want more, you can use Spark Video. With Spark Video, you combine all the great features of Post and Page with the ability to add voice-overs, cinematic motion, and professional quality soundtracks. It’s the easiest way I’ve found to create beautiful short videos.

Adobe Premiere Clip

Adobe Premiere Pro is Adobe’s commercial video editing application. Although it’s not included in the Creative Cloud Photography package, the mobile version, Adobe Premiere Clip, is.

Adobe Premiere Clip Screenshot

Like Photoshop Fix and Mix, Premiere Clip brings some of the best features of the main app to smartphones. It’s an easy way to quickly edit clips together, add titles, a soundtrack, transitions, effects, and adjustments. If you’ve shot a time-lapse and want to add some music or a fade-in at the start, it’s the perfect solution.

Unlike some of the apps Adobe have released, Premiere Clip is available on both iOS and Android devices.

Creative Cloud Features

While the apps grab most of the attention, Adobe’s Creative Cloud has some great back-end features you won’t know how you lived without.

Sync keeps your settings, actions, and projects the same across all your different devices. If you edit an image in Lightroom Mobile, it’s what syncs everything back to your main catalog.

Adobe Creative Cloud Screenshot

Libraries are another recent addition to the Creative Cloud and a great way to make sure your commonly used assets are available everywhere. If you have a collection of photos, fonts, or anything else you regularly use, you should save them to a library.

With the Creative Cloud you also get access to TypeKit and Adobe Stock where you can buy professional fonts and stock images respectively. Although more aimed for designers, if you’re working on a composite or poster, having direct access from Photoshop to Adobe’s huge catalog of resources can speed up your work.

Wrapping Up

For photographers, Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photography package should be a no brainer. For $9.99 a month you not only get Lightroom and Photoshop but a whole host of extra features; Adobe Portfolio is a particularly sweet addition.

As a MakeUseOf reader, enjoy 20% off your first year — pay only $7.99 a month! Get the deal here.

Even better, we’re giving away one year of access to the Creative Cloud Photography plan to three lucky MakeUseOf readers.

      Great idea Nikki! Good photos are super important for online shops. Check out the deal even if you don't win, it'd probably count as a business expense.

    Web-based subscription photo management software is the future and Adobe is the best.

    • Harry Guinness
      September 14, 2016 at 3:59 pm

      Totally agree! Adobe's handled the transition really well.

    I'd love to have access to Adobe's Creative Cloud so that I can make some fancy photos for a calendar I'm making. Thanks for the great contest!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 14, 2016 at 3:58 pm

      No problem Mike. Check out the deal as well. What sort of fancy things would you do to your photo?

    The first thing I would do if I was lucky enough to win would be to learn. I have no software as of yet to do digital imaging. I'm used to film and a darkroom. I know somethings on this but would love to learn more. I am very interested in continuing my education for both personal and job related reasons.

    • Harry Guinness
      September 14, 2016 at 3:57 pm

      Great idea Shawn. Photoshop and Lightroom are definitely the tools to use if you're professional.

      That's sweet Monica! Check out the deal as well. It could make a great birthday or Christmas present.

    I would use the features to vintagize a photo of my vintage building!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 14, 2016 at 3:54 pm

      Cool idea! If I wrote an article on how to age a photo in Photoshop, what'd you want me to cover?

  60. Felicity Smith

    make a business card for myself and my business

    • Harry Guinness
      September 14, 2016 at 3:54 pm

      Great plan Felicity. You can do that even if you don't win. Check out the deal or use a print site with business card templates.

    • Harry Guinness

    I would probably use the account first to fix up some old photos, which would also probably help me learn the software as well.

  64. M Dean

    I would try to fix some of my old photos, like one of my great grandparents that has a few tears and discolouring.

    This is on my must have baby list. Can't wait to try my hand at newborn photography.

    • Harry Guinness
      September 11, 2016 at 12:59 pm

      Congrats Toni! Make sure to back up any important photos. Without one, they're too unsafe!

  66. Denise C
    September 11, 2016 at 3:03 am

    if I won I'd use this to learn how to touch up all our old family photos. Thanks!

      That happens to everyone when they're starting out. Don't worry, it'll come. You should grab the deal or check out other editing apps even if you don't win.

    • Harry Guinness

      The beauty of Lightroom is that you can save ALL your photos and still make the great ones easy to find.

    Would love to learn and develop my photography skills by adding a creative element to my landscape shots and hopefully become much more confident!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 11, 2016 at 12:56 pm

      Sounds great Anne, you should look at some other editing options even if you don't win.

  72. Shiva Kunwar

    As I'm starting the basics of photography and editing, I would use it in every possible way I know to increase my knowledge and produce fruitful results if I win.

    I would certainly put good use of my Nikon D5300 I bought last year. We just recently had a baby girl in July and will probably be taking 1,000's of pictures along the way and will want to touch up some of those most precious moments!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 11, 2016 at 12:56 pm

      Congrats on the birth of your baby girl! Yes, you definitely will. Make sure to back up all your photos.

    • Harry Guinness
      September 9, 2016 at 7:38 am

      Even if you don't win you should check out Photoshop or learn to use another editing app. There are some great options like Pixelmator.

    • Harry Guinness
      September 9, 2016 at 7:37 am

      Sounds like a fun year, but you should grab the deal so you can edit them anyway. It's a shame to just let photos sit there.

  79. Maggie
    September 7, 2016 at 8:05 pm

    I'll start polishing and growing my skills using this article!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 8, 2016 at 7:35 pm

      Good plan Maggie! Though with the deal, you should start doing that now anyway!

    • Harry Guinness
      September 7, 2016 at 1:55 pm

    • Harry Guinness

    • Harry Guinness
      September 6, 2016 at 2:56 pm

      Even if you don't win, you should totally get some photos printed out for your home and family. I'm sure they'd love it!
