With its soft edges and configurable effects, you can create a variety of lighting effects. In this video, we take day to night and add some dramatic spotlight effects using the Radial Filter in Lightroom. [More]

Lightroom and Photoshop – Lens Corrections

August 5, 2014

Lightroom and Photoshop can work together in powerful ways, and each seems to have strengths where the other has weaknesses. Lightroom has a powerful new feature called “Upright,” found in the Lens Corrections panel of the Develop Module.

Lightroom and Photoshop – Smart Editing

July 8, 2014

In this video, we will examine the workflow in which a raw file in Lightroom is sent over to Photoshop as a Smart Object. [More]
