Photoshop vs Lightroom: when, how & why to use them. Photographers love to compare, what's the best lens, best camera, should you use Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom? To help you decide which editing tool is right for your next project, I will explore both programs and how to squeeze them dry together instead of trying to pull them apart.

Juan Aguilera received his degree in Industrial Design from the University Autonoma Metropolitana in Mexico City. A self-proclaimed color nut, he believes color is an independent language with a specific grammar, spelling and intonation. Juan is a teacher at heart, having taught geometry and design to students ranging from middle school to adults. He currently teaches Photoshop, color correction, camera raw and digital photography workflow, Flash, and InDesign.

However the camera sensor sees color, detail and many stars which our eyes cannot. Post-processing is needed to develop the drama inherent in the raw file. Developing Milky Way images to their full potential will stretch your digital darkroom a bit but it is not magic. I will demonstrate several examples in Lightroom and Photoshop. When the foreground lighting requires a different exposure, it will require two or more images with some old-fashioned hand masked HDR techniques.
