Adobe Lightroom Video Workshop: 7 tutorials on Lightroom + Photoshop Integration DISCONTINUED!

Photograph © George A. Jardine

This video series is now out of date, and I’m no longer offering it as an online product. Frankly, there is more complete information in my new Library series on Lightroom 4, which can be found here.

Having said that, you can still see the free online video from the series. The nice thing is that nothing about the way Lightroom integration with Photoshop works has changed. So the free video might still be of value to you. But there is more complete information in tutorial #15, in the current Library series.

The video titles are:

    1   The Lightroom to Photoshop Workflow for raw files   –  14:02 (Click here to view the free sample movie.) 2   The Lightroom to Photoshop Workflow for RGB files   –  39:29 3   Creating 3 Corrections for the Shoji Screen Project, Virtual Copies and more   –  22:31 4   Creating the Shoji Screen Composite, Layers and Masks   –  22:31 5   Editing the Layered Shoji Screen Composite   –  9:29 6   The Smart Object Workflow   –  17:39 7   The Merge to Panorama Workflow, and Lightroom Editing Preferences   –  10:01

Very very well done Tutorials for us digital photographers who don’t carry the ego that says “We know it all.” George’s Tutorials are well thought out, very nicely recorded, and very ‘user friendly’ for those of us who need them. Keep ‘em coming, George. Thank you an awful lot.

Hi George:

I hope that arm is feeling better and that you’ll get some time off after finishing these tutorials. If they are anything like your previous LR tutorials, which I’m sure they are, these tutorials will be superb. I’ll be paying for them shortly!

Hi George, I suddenly realized sending “atta-boys” via e-mail defeated the purpose of Comments as a way to improve site rankings so here are my previous e-mailed comments!

This is the first time I’ve enjoyed the feeling of drowning in TMI (too much information.) I’ve subscribed to all your videos to date and will do so for this one as well.

Having never even heard of you until last month, your videos have quickly become my “go to” resource for all things LR and PS training related. I’m looking forward to meeting you in Las Vegas in August (who the hell goes to Vegas in August?)

What I enjoy most about your videos is that they’re not “cookie cutters” but intelligent explanations of complex technologies presented in such a way that, with thought and effort, I can extend your lessons to myriad other situations. In other words, you treat us like we have a brain! Thanks.

George Jardine’s video tutorials stand out in a class of their own!

As a professional photographer based in London, I search far and wide for really good video tutorials.

Photography is about creativity and vision, but often this can be subjugated by our lack of understanding of the tools we use.

George understands perfectly this balance. His tutorials are easily accessible for people at all levels, yet offer a solid technique that underpins the foundation of our creative expression. Whether you are new to the joys of photography, or an experienced professional these tutorials will most certainly take you to the next level!

His comprehensive approach and detail to the technical aspects of the subject are thorough, yet he never loses sight of the real purpose behind all those dials and technique which is to create compelling and creative photography, and to ENJOY the process!

It is for exactly that reason that George does NOT treat the subject as a fast food convenience that attracted me (and no doubt many many others!) to these wonderful tutorials!

Oh yes, and did I mention how incredibly cheap they are as well!! :)

George June 24, 2011 at 4:31 PM

I’m cheap??? :-)

Thanks for your comments, Kirsty. Really glad you’re getting a lot out of the tutorials. Always a pleasure to hear from customers who are… shall I say… paying attention! Your support helps me keep up the good fight for real content. On to the next series!!!

G.

Kirsty McLaren June 24, 2011 at 5:11 PM

cheap?? In the nicest possible way!!

I do hope that you do stick to your principles, because the payback of good knowledge & solid understanding is worth every single bit of the effort put in and much, much MORE!

lets all spread the word :)

Paul Beiser June 25, 2011 at 6:58 AM

Another great series. This is a complicated subject, one I have struggled with and I love the way George can make complicated subjects like this straightforward. As Kirsty so eloquently states, this tutorial is accessible for people at all levels but is comprehensive and complete. George, please keep them coming!

Jack Larson June 25, 2011 at 7:27 PM

Any tutorials that you make available for the iPad would be greatly appreciated.

Jim Lenz June 26, 2011 at 8:01 AM

I am thinking of purchasing this but need to know if Photshop understanding is necessary. I am learning Lightroom and have Photoshop but haven’t taken any learned it yet. Should I learn the basics of Photoshop before this or would this class be okay with no knowledge?

George June 26, 2011 at 8:31 AM

Hi Jim,

Well, that’s a good question. My feeling is that watching the Integration series will actually teach you quite a bit about Photoshop. It’s not a Photoshop tutorial per se, but there is a bit of basic stuff in there about layers, masking and selections. I don’t feel that much Photoshop knowledge is prerequisite…. but a basic foundation of digital imaging wouldn’t hurt.

George

George June 26, 2011 at 8:35 AM

Jack…. do you mean this Integration series? I do already provide iPad versions of all of my tutorial series. For online access, when you are connected to a wireless internet connection, it is automatic. Just surf to your URL on an iPad, and iPad content will be delivered. If you wish to have offline versions, after purchase, just send me a request, and I send you the download links. The iPad formatted H.264 files can be put into iTunes, streamed to AppleTV via AirPlay (GREAT on an HDTV!), and can be synced to an iPad.

Does that answer your question? George

Alan Hunt July 3, 2011 at 7:58 PM

George’s tutorials are always done just right. They are all about the subject, and not about George Jardine. I have purchased and watched all of his tutorial videos, and have learned something (actually lots) new with each chapter. The Photoshop Integration videos are no exception. I consider myself to be an advanced Lightroom user but I never truly understood and thus seldom utilized the “Edit in Photoshop” choice. The way in which he uses real-life examples to walk through the nuances of the LR-Photoshop integration was especially helpful. And also, in the process I learned new things about the Lens Correction Panel. His deep understanding of Lightroom and Photoshop and how they interact, his willingness to share that knowledge, and his tutorial style make these videos tops.

Don Montabana July 8, 2011 at 6:07 PM

Althought I’ve been using PS and LR for a long time this concise series of tutorials not only answered questions I had regarding how the two interact but also revealed a number of hidden features that will be fun to explore.

Although I’m comfortable in LR I’m looking forward to the LR Develop module series since I expect to walk away with a number of tips and tricks that I won’t find elsewhere.

George, keep ‘em coming!

John July 16, 2011 at 7:01 AM

Splendid series George!

I just made a few comments about it on my blog http://jckingca.wordpress.com/2011/07/16/beyond-lightroom/

“…This series has more than two hours of instruction in George’s relaxed and informative style. All of George’s previous video tutorials are carefully planned and presented; this newest edition is no exception. When you follow George’s detailed steps in taking a perfectly acceptable photo from Lightroom and transforming it to an outstanding professional image through various editing stages in Photoshop, it’s easy to infer that George takes the same precise care with creating his tutorial videos. Most if not all of the Photoshop steps are available in PSE, so that is an added benefit.

The real bonus in this series are the LR tips along the way. I won’t list them here, but George demonstrates several unique LR tips that I’ve now incorporated into my daily routine. George’s background of working at Adobe for so many years enables him to explain not only how but why things work as they do in Lightroom. I worked in higher education for most of my career and nothing delights me more than seeing great teaching. George not only knows his stuff; he cares about it and presents it splendidly. As he says on his website: “In my continuing battle against fast-food style video tutorials, I am very pleased to present this new series. For those of you who can still think, and wish to engage yourself in a bit of serious exploration on the subject, here it is.”

The new series is $14.95. Money and time well spent in my opinion. “

Hi George, Maybe an unusual question, but besides photography I like (to make) music. The music played in all your modules-tutorial I like it a lot! Please can I have the names of the artists an titles? Thank you! BTW great series your tutorials :) Fred

Vivien Stevens July 19, 2011 at 10:28 PM

Thanks George, Having just learned a new thing or two from your generous free sample video, I’ve bought the online series.

Found this today because I was searching for something else on Peachpit Press’ site and spotted your familiar name in the authors’ list. Usually, I’d check Amazon or your blog.

I recommend to those who want clear, concise, comprehensive, exceptionally well-presented, easy to follow tutorials (with zero ‘irritation’ factor) that you can’t do better than to learn from George Jardine :-)

Michael B July 26, 2011 at 5:16 AM

Having just finished watching the tutorials, all I can say is, there simply is no better instructor out there. The depth of content and skillful presentation that was critical to the Camera Raw videos is completely duplicated in the Integration series. I don’t care who you are…there is just no way that you can’t learn a great deal than from following along with George.

Bob DiNatale August 30, 2011 at 11:56 AM

A wonderful, wonderful series… the depth and shaping of the information you cover in this set of tutorials is amazing. This is not a basic set of videos tutorials. It is a total “Around the World” Lightroom/Photoshop/Lightroom workflow with many advanced concepts wonderfully explained. Thanks George

Jack Varney October 19, 2011 at 3:44 PM

After viewing your B&W conversion sampler I was must say it is extraordinary! I have never seen a presentation so well thought out, so well presented and so carefully and insightfully illustrated with the sole mission of educating the viewer.

George October 19, 2011 at 4:02 PM

Thanks, Jack. I’m glad you enjoyed the video.

Yes… you can say that the mission is solely to educate the viewer. It’s purpose is to help the viewer not only see something about B&W, but also to help them see what they might expect in my other tutorials. :-)

Nuthin’ up my sleeve. But that’s why I threw it out there. So enjoy! There’s a bunch of other free videos on the site, in fact, one for each series.

Best, George

No recent comments since LR4 was released.

Great set of videos. Useful and informative. Although the videos are based on LR3, it makes absolutely no difference. Everything is applicable to LR4.

Andy June 15, 2012 at 10:07 AM

Hi George Although you state that Tutorial 1 of the LR+PS series is still available I get a 404 error when I click on the link. I am trying to view it as you specifically suggest doing that in Tut #15 of the LR4 Library series when the ACR version is not equivalent to the LR4 version.

Both the LR4 Library and Develop Series are superb – many thanks indeed. Andy

George June 15, 2012 at 10:29 AM

Hi Andy, My apologies! Fixed that link. FYI…. you’re e-mail is bouncing back as undeliverable! Maybe send me a new one? Thanks, George
