Video: Working with Multiple Applications to enhance an Image
One of the bad habits that I’ve found myself doing a lot over the past few years, is being a bit lazy when it comes to post production. Even though I use a lot of different applications, I still find that I have gotten into this mental head space of always trying to do everything in the one application. This wasn’t always the case though. I used to work across multiple applications, usually starting in Lightroom, and then using Photoshop and maybe some plug-ins.
Recently I’ve rediscovered this way of working, and I wanted to show that it doesn’t have to be that complicated, or any more time consuming than trying to do everything in the one place. I was doing this more for my own purposes than anything, but I thought it would make a nice demonstration.
So in the video, I start with a photo in Apple’s Photos (just because that’s where it was already, but this could have just as easily been from Lightroom) and from there I edit it in Photoshop, and then use Luminar as a plug-in to do some enhancements, as well as some more photoshop editing. Finally, I save everything back to Photos.
