Unbeatable Photoshop Editing Power
As previously discussed, Lightroom has many advantages over Photoshop when it comes to Organizing photos and batch processing. However, Photoshop editing power is unbeatable! In this article, I look into a few of the most popular Photoshop editing tools.
Photoshop changes the pixels of the image when applying an edit. For instance, if you adjust the brightness of a photo, Photoshop will use it to change the photo’s pixels. After saving the changes, there is no way to undo it. This is one of the negative points for Photoshop.
However, Photoshop offers Layers. Therefore, you can create a layer and apply the changes to the layers to preserve the original photos, provided that you save the file a Photoshop or Tiff format.
On the other hand, You can improve your retouchings by using the power os Masks and or Blends.
In the example below, I added one photo on top of another image. So, by using the power of Mask and Blend tools, I effortlessly changed the sky.

Photoshop Type Tool
Although Lightroom is a powerhouse for editing photographs, it cannot add texts to the photos. Adding words to images is one of the most demanded features.
Photoshop Type Tool is the most advanced Type kit in the market.
Below I added a basic yet pleasing text effect to the image.

Often, there are some unwanted or distracting elements in the picture that you wish you could remove or replace them.

Photoshop Content-Aware Tool
Clone Stamp Tool works fine on a simple background. However, for a complex background, you need to work hard to create a realistic image. Thanks to the new Photoshop Content-Aware Tool, the task can be done effortlessly.
The content-aware tool is a complicated algorithm, but Photoshop AI (Artificial Intelligence) makes it fun and easy to use.
In the picture below, I removed the unwanted items from the frame and Photoshop replaced them with proper pixels.
