Currently I have the Adobe CC plan as well as Canon DPP.
Always shoot raw and if the images are easy or just do not need anything more than conversion to Jpeg I use DPP for those as I feel Lightroom destroys my photo sharpness.
I feel if DPP could do layer and such similar to PS I would use that exclusively.
So currently I will import the images into Lightroom. I like how that works and where it stores them. (I do have Bridge downloaded but have not used it once.)
I go through ALL photos and flag keepers for retouch.
I then export one image at a time to Photoshop for camera raw filter and adjust the sharpness and exposure. If the photo needs any cloning or adjustment layers I will do that and maybe mask for a background color correction.
So from there, I will Ctl-s to save back to lightroom.
But I really want to keep that file as maybe a PSD or (Tiff?) so I can adjust these layers later if needed.
Where Should I save that?
I really enjoy the export feature of Lightroom so that's why I send it there after Photoshop adjustments.
So thank you for reading, I am open to any thoughts you may have.
