Photographer Simon Plant compares an image processed in Photoshop with one emulated in Lightroom. The result – a similar feel, yet two very different landscapes. So do you need both programs?

Comparing Effects in Lightroom and Photoshop
Personally, I prefer utilizing both Lightroom and Photoshop. Some detail work can only be done in the “meatier” Photoshop, while Lightroom can definitely accomplish 90% of what you need in post-processing while handling a larger workload efficiently. Overall, based on your workflow (high volume vs fine art), each program has its pros and cons. In the end, you have to decide on what program fits best into your workflow and needs, or the magical combination of both.
Until Next Time . . .
