Photoshop vs Lightroom – the Power of Photoshop

In this video from Nick Page, he Looks at Photoshop vs Lightroom and shows some things that Photoshop can do that Lightroom cannot.

In this tutorial, Nick covers the following using landscape photos as examples:

  • How to use the Quick Selection Tool to select skies against difficult backgrounds so that you can change things like exposure, and contrast more selectively.
  • How to use the Select and Mask tool to refine selections.
  • Applying the selection as a new layer mask.
  • How to fade your opacity levels of your selection.
  • Using the Hue/Saturation adjustment.
  • How to focus stack using layers, and Auto Align and Auto Blend Layers features.
  • Using Exposure Blend and feathered brushes for realism in your photograph.
  • A handy shortcut to create a white layer mask rather that a black one.
  • How to use Levels Adjustment to alter your image contrast.


Do you use Lightroom, or Photoshop? Or both in conjunction with one another? Let us know in the comments.
