Process camera raw images in Photoshop Elements

Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon. This book is a must for those photographers, experiencing some confusion when attempting to apply some of the functions within their own raw conversion software. Ben Longs book is the compliment to those software. It is worthy of a 5 Star plus. It's colour illustrated, with many examples, delves into the mysteries of histograms, clipping, batch processing, etc.

For a few dollars, a bargain, a definite investment. I like the book. With a copyright date of second edition , it was probably updated from the original edition in or perhaps earlier. Learn the complete guide to Adobe Lightroom with Ben Willmore.

However, Lightroom is much more than a photo editor or image editing software. Lightroom helps you import, organize, manage, and find your images. In turn, Lightroom is photo management and photo editing, combined into a single tool. All of the edits are automatically kept in your Lightroom catalog, which acts as your database of edits and history. Lightroom is perfect for most basic photo editing, including but not limited to cropping, white balance, exposure, histogram adjustments, tonal curves, black and white conversion, spot removal, red eye corrections, gradients, local adjustments, sharpening, noise reduction, lens profile corrections, vibrance, and saturation.

Lightroom is also much easier to use than Photoshop, which can have more of a steep learning curve.

When it comes to workflow, I believe Lightroom blows Photoshop out of the water. With Lightroom, you can create collections, add keywords, move multiple images or files around your hard drive, create slideshows, print books, and share your photos directly to Facebook with relative ease. As importantly, you can also copy or sync your photo edits to multiple photos at once. You can also use and create Lightroom presets to apply common settings across your photos. Depending on the type of photography you do, this can be fairly often or practically never.

If you want to have pixel level control to edit photos, or if you want to make an arm thinner or a person taller, Photoshop is needed. When you want to slice and dice a couple of images to create a single awesome image, Photoshop is your answer. Although there are some great HDR plugins available for Lightroom Photomatix , if you want to blend images together to pull out the highlights and shadows from multiple exposures, Photoshop can do this.

With Photoshop, you can stitch several photos together to create beautiful panoramas. There is no right answer. The great news is that you can certainly use both Lightroom and Photoshop together because they integrate quite well particularly in the Creative Cloud. Both Lightroom and Photoshop are great software packages that have the ability to bring out your post-processing and post-production creativity.
