What is photoshop?

Photoshop® is an umbrella of software programs created by Adobe Systems, Inc. – the leader in photo management software.


We at The Showcase School teach 3 of Adobe’s Photoshop® programs for photographers:

Lightroom®

Adobe Photoshop CC®

 

 

How can I choose which program is right for me?

All Photoshop® programs allow you to do basic actions on your images:  crop, re-size, correct, enhance and much more.

 See below the highlights of each program and choose your program based on what you want to primarily do with your images.

 

 

Adobe Photoshop CC®

This is the highest level of photo-editing available.  It is a subscription-based software (approx. $10/month) designed for the serious photographer and provides advanced tools for multi-layer edits primarily for single image editing.  Most professionals use both Adobe Photoshop CC® and Lightroom® in combination for complete photo management through the Creative Cloud (CC) subscription-based program.

 

Lightroom®

Lightroom® is a complete photo-management program known for organizing a large amount of images, providing editing tools and easy export to other programs.  Lightroom® may be accessed through the Creative Cloud (CC) subscription (which includes Photoshop CC® and more for approx. $10/month).

Lighroom® may also be purchased as a single copy for approx. $149. Most professionals use both Adobe Photoshop CC® and Lightroom® in combination for complete photo management through the Creative Cloud subscription-based program.

Lightroom® is divided up in to several “modules”.  Here at The Showcase School we teach Lightroom® in a measured and understandable way by modules.  We suggest your first class be Lightroom®-Library and your second class Lightroom®- Develop.  That will be your primary learning experience.  You may also opt for Lightroom® - Workflow to learn how all modules work together.
