Re: Since Lightroom is so good, what do you use Photoshop for?

I use LR to convert my raw files to Tiffs., it is, after all a raw converter first and an editor second.

I then use it to do some basic editing and finish off using CS6.

There's nothing that LR can do that Photoshop can't so obviously, if one had to go it would be LR.

Making that choice between LR and Elements though, would be less clear cut.

The editing part of LR has come on a lot since only a few years ago and Elements is so emasculated by comparison to the real thing that LR could well come out on top.

The lack of layers is probably LR's biggest Achille's heel and even that can be overcome using by Perfect Layers.

Despite many people's apparent love for them, LR's libraries and organisers leave me cold and don't believe that you have to use them. You don't.
