Start using Lightroom with Photoshop

Learn how, why, and when to use Photoshop CC and Photoshop Lightroom together.

Supercharge your photography by using Photoshop with Lightroom

Lightroom and Photoshop are the perfect combo for anyone who loves photography. Lightroom is where you'll organize, share, and adjust your photos so they look their best. Photoshop is where you'll add further edits to your photos–like combining photos, removing flaws, moving objects, applying Photoshop filters, adding text, and more.

Learn how and when to pass your photos from Lightroom to Photoshop to take advantage of Photoshop's editing superpowers in addition to adjustments you make in Lightroom. Then save your photos from Photoshop back to Lightroom to keep track of all your photos in one place.

Remove and move objects in your photos with Photoshop

How often have you shot a great photo, only to realize that there's something or someone you didn't mean to capture in your photo? Fortunately, Photoshop has you covered. Learn to bring your photos from Lightroom to Photoshop to take advantage of Photoshop's powerful tools for moving and removing content in your photos. 

Combine images in Photoshop

Make something more of a photograph by combining it with other images in Photoshop. Whether you're making a blended composite that looks like it came straight from your camera, creating a photo collage, or adding texture on top of a photo, you'll need to know how to transfer your photos from Lightroom to Photoshop to combine multiple photos into one.

Apply filters to a photo in Photoshop

Photoshop offers many filters for adding creative and special effects, including art filters, a gallery of blur filters, and special effects filters like Liquify. The Liquify filter is useful not only for creative effects, but also to fine-tune features in a portrait.

Filters aren't the only way to get creative in Photoshop. When you're feeling creative, try taking a photo from Lightroom to Photoshop to add layer styles, colorize, warp, convert to 3D, and more.

Add text to a photo in Photoshop 

Imagine your photo combined with text as a party invitation, a wedding announcement, or an inspirational image for your social media posts. Learn how to take your photos from Lightroom to Photoshop and back again to add and edit text.
