    I enjoyed this conversation. I couldn’t help but chuckle about the clone tool comments. It’s the main reason I only tweak the basics and print in lightroom. The rest of my editing I do in Photoshop. Thanks to both of you ๐Ÿ™‚

      I’m pleased you enjoyed this Charlie.

      Yes, the clone tool is a pain to work with for sure. I still work with it as much as possible, as I prefer not to make a copy for this level of changes, but I do have to jump to Photoshop occasionally because Lightroom just doesn’t work well enough.

        I would probably do the same but I have acquired a more unusually workflow and export all my processed photos to Photoshop. Since I’m a “weekend warrior” and a landscaper I have fewer pictures to edit. So I export all my photos as a smart object and save as PS file. This keeps my most recent camera raw changes and keeps me from dealing with Lightroom catalogs…..which may be another thing I despise ๐Ÿ™‚ Although in a few years I’ll probably hate the way I processed something and start from scratch anyway ๐Ÿ™‚

          Yes, if you already have PSD files then this isn’t a big deal. And yes, there will almost definitely come a time when you’ll have to redo that work. The 7 years or so of work that I had in PSD format, from before Lightroom, has not seen the light of day since without going back to my raw files and reworking the image.

          Also, when Adobe updated the raw processing engine causing us to update our raw files, and in my opinion giving better results, it was pretty easy for me to go through and just update most of my photos because they were still in raw format.

          Everyone unto their own though. If you are happy with how you work now, that’s fine. ๐Ÿ™‚

            Yeah that’s true. For me I tend to look back and wonder why I processed a picture in such a horrible way lol. I imagine Adobe Raw processing has come a long way. It will be interesting to see if a new engine could make a picture that much better.
