Lightroom-Photoshop Roundtrip Workflow

Chapter Description

In this chapter from Adobe Lightroom CC and Photoshop CC for Photographers Classroom in a Book, author Lesa Snider teaches you how to adjust settings in both Lightroom and Photoshop to ensure you’re passing the highest-quality files back and forth between the two programs. You’ll also learn how to send files from Lightroom to Photoshop in a variety of formats, as well as how to reopen a file within Lightroom that you edited in Photoshop. In fact, this may be one of the most important lessons in this book because it covers the mechanics of a typical roundtrip workflow between Lightroom and Photoshop.
