Lightroom Classic CC and Photoshop: Workflow Strategies

via LinkedIn Learning


Discover how to leverage the highly adaptable Lightroom to speed up your photographic workflow. Learn the best practices for a modern workflow, from capture to output and sharing.

Many long-time digital photographers use a workflow that involves Adobe Bridge, Camera Raw, and Photoshop. If that describes you, you might be working too hard. In this course, discover how to modernize your photographic workflow—and save time—by swapping Bridge and Camera Raw for Lightroom Classic CC. Bryan O'Neil Hughes walks through a modern photographic workflow that incorporates Lightroom and Photoshop. He shines a spotlight on the highly-adaptable Lightroom, with which you can use your mobile device to capture high-fidelity raw files, offload your legacy camera raw files onto mobile devices, and edit both kinds of files on mobile devices. He also explains how to leverage Lightroom and Photoshop on the desktop. Plus—because the world is going mobile—he shares insights on how to fit Lightroom for mobile, Photoshop Fix, and Behance into your workflow.
