The biggest question I hear a lot from upcoming photographers is this: Which editing program should I use? Photoshop or Lightroom?
There is simply no short answer for this question, as both programs are vastly different from each other, so let's explore what each program can offer to you as a photographer.
Lightroom can be defined as both a photo processing and image organizer all in one.
Lightroom allows for viewing, organizing, and retouching a large amount of photos in one given time due to the interface set-up of the program. In simple terms, Lightroom is workflow oriented.
Photoshop on the other hand, is very different in it's set-up & capabilities.
This intensive editing program can be defined as a graphics editing software used for photo editing and image manipulation. To put it straightforward, Photoshop is the King of photo enhancing.
So which is right for you? Let's dive in to witness the functions of both editing programs so you can determine which program will suit your needs (if not both).
With the organizational & photo-editing powers of Lightroom, you will be able to whiz through your photo sessions in a breeze and with the advanced editing & image manipulation you can achieve in Photoshop, these editing programs can be combined to create the ultimate photography post-processing POWERHOUSE.
