Photos by Denyce Weiler Understanding the Purpose of Photoshop Even though Photoshop can be confusing, it’s one of the most powerful image-editing applications on the planet. When it comes to working with photography it can’t be beat. The powerful tools in Photoshop allow photographers to do things that weren’t possible with film photography. 3 shows an original image and the new image that I created in Photoshop using advanced techniques, such as combining multiple images and layers, using special filters, and using custom layer blending styles.

It wasn’t until they went back to those images later on that they realized they had, in essence, destroyed important images. This nondestructive editing philosophy is one of the most important aspects to consider when creating a digital workflow. Without it, you’re like a trapeze artist who’s working without a net. I stress the importance of a nondestructive workflow throughout this book — especially when you start working with Photoshop in Part III. That’s because, as you’ll see in the next chapter, by its very nature Photoshop is destructive to the pixels in an image file.

Part of the thought process behind this strategy is that using keywords allows photographers to find images when they need them, no matter which folder the images are in. If I keyword all of my photos from the coast correctly, I can use those keywords to locate them later. I don’t need to give my coast folder a name that describes its contents. Instead, I can name it 2008_07_21. If I take the time to add keywords to each image, I’ll be able to find them in a snap with Lightroom’s powerful search and filter functions.
