Some Things Just Don’t Change: My Lightroom + Photoshop Integration Sample Video Remains As Relevant As It Was 2 Years Ago…

As I was preparing for my upcoming Using Lightroom With Photoshop class at CPAC, I stumbled on a retired video tutorial that doesn’t deserve to be lost in the parade of updates. So I’ve resurrected it, and found a permanent home for it on my “free stuff” page of videos and magazine articles.

As it turns out, nothing really changed between Lightroom 3 and Lightroom 4 in the way Photoshop Integration works, so this video is still completely valid. It goes into great detail, mapping out the exact paths open to you when going from Lightroom to Photoshop. It also details what happens when your ACR plug-in is not up-to-date with your version of Lightroom, and what to do about it.

Click here to see the Flash version of the video.

And if you’re feeling adventurous, click here to see the HTML5 version of the video.

As always, iPad users can click either link, and will get routed to a specially-formatted video for your device.

That cleared up some confusing points. Is the rest of the series still available? Or is most of it covered in more recent tutorials?

Hi Robert,

I think the info in the series is best covered in this tutorial, and in the current Library tutorial #15.

Hi Donna, Currently working on a new “image correction” series. It will be mostly about Lightroom, but will also include some special Photoshop techniques!
