Hey there! Ever felt like jumping between Photoshop and Lightroom Classic is a bit of a hassle, especially when you’re in the zone editing photos? Well, I’ve got some cool news for you. You can actually tweak your photos in Photoshop and have those changes pop right back into Lightroom Classic without the need to export anything. It’s like having the best of both worlds without any of the fuss. Let me walk you through how this magic happens!

It’s Like They’re Best Friends!

First off, the idea that Photoshop and Lightroom Classic can’t work together is old news. They’re actually pretty great pals! This little trick I’m about to show you lets you send your photos for a quick trip to Photoshop and then zips them right back to Lightroom Classic, all nice and edited, ready for more tweaking if needed.

Getting Started

So, here’s how you kick things off: Open up Lightroom Classic and pick out a photo you want to edit. Maybe there’s a sneaky photobomber or an unwanted trash can ruining your perfect shot. Normally, you might try to fix it in Lightroom, but sometimes, you just need those extra Photoshop tools.

Prep Your Photo

Before we send our photo over to Photoshop, it’s a good idea to apply any presets or adjustments in Lightroom Classic first. This helps keep your photo looking consistent, especially with colors, after it’s been through the Photoshop magic.

Jumping Over to Photoshop

Now, for the exciting part! Right-click on your photo in Lightroom Classic and select “Edit in Photoshop.” This opens your photo in Photoshop without you having to do any exporting or file juggling. If you’re aiming to remove something from the background, Photoshop’s got this awesome feature called Generative Fill. It’s perfect for erasing unwanted stuff and making it look like it was never there.

Save and See It Back in Lightroom

After you’ve done your Photoshop wizardry, just hit save, and voila! Your edited photo automatically updates in Lightroom Classic, sitting right next to the original. This means you can jump back into Lightroom and continue editing, organizing, or whatever you like, without skipping a beat.

So, there you have it – a super simple guide to using Photoshop and Lightroom Classic together like they’re two peas in a pod. Give it a try and see how it transforms your photo editing routine. Happy editing, and don’t forget to have fun experimenting with this cool integration!
