This official Adobe tutorial shows photographers and photography students how to use Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC together to get results and efficiencies they could never achieve with either product alone. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CC for Photographers Classroom in a Book(R) begins by presenting a quick, hands-on overview of Lightroom's powerful cataloging functions, perfect for readers who've used a different photo organization tool (or ne at all!). Next, Jan Kabili introduces a simple, well-proven Lightroom-Photoshop workflow. Building on these fundamentals, she guides readers through a series of practical projects that start in Lightroom and move to Photoshop to use its powerful, exclusive tools. You'll walk through fixing common photo problems such as blur caused by camera shake; bringing out important details; adding creative effects with adjustment layers; layering images to create composites; adding text or 3D objects; performing precise photo retouching, and much more. Classroom in a Book, the best-selling series of hands-on software training workbooks, helps students learn the features of Adobe software quickly and easily. It offers what other book or training program does: official training from Adobe Systems Incorporated, developed with the support of Adobe product experts. Online companion files include all the assets readers need to complete each chapter's projects, as well as eBook updates when Adobe releases new features for Creative Cloud customers. New to this release, all buyers of the book get full access to the Web Edition: a Web-based version of the complete eBook enhanced with video and interactive multiple-choice quizzes. As with all Classroom in a Book products, Instructor Notes are available for teachers to download.
