Lightroom & Photoshop

During the Epson Print Academy today, Jeff Schewe does a great job detailing how to set up an optimum relationship between Lightroom and Photoshop.
Use LR (or ACR) for parametric edits.
Use Photoshop for processing pixels.
The lion’s share of image processing happens during Raw conversion,
So, what kinds of things should you favor doing in Photoshop?
Here’s Schewe’s list.
Industrial Strength Noise Reduction
Creative Sharpening / Blurring

    John Paul….
    I had the pleasure of meeting you yesterday at the end of the Epson Print academy in Chicago. Your session on Photoshop at the end of the day was outstanding and your print on display in the expo area was inspirational.
    One minor comment about this blog posting; I think Jeff (not to put words in Dr. Schewe’s mouth) does his capture and output sharpening in LR, and does “creative” sharpening in Photoshop. Just a small point, if I remembered him correctly.
    After seeing your work and hearing you speak at the academy, you’ve got a new fan here!
    Take care…
    Todd in Chicago
