    Photoshop vs lightroom wire removal

    mgatov

      Is there a difference in the way Photoshop handles wire removal vs. Lightroom?  If so... how are they different?

       

      Thank you!

          With Photoshop you can use layers and even replace skies. Lightroon is not a full function image editor to remove items an replace items well Lightroon needs to use an external image editor.  However if it just wire removal you may be able to clone then out with Lightroom quite well.  You can always undo what you do in Lightroom a retry and do better,

            Thank you.  But, are the tools the same? or the Photoshop tool non-reversable?

              No the tools are not the same.  Photoshop is a full blown image editor it has a vast amount of tool and features Lightroom is not a full blown image editor it need to use an external application to make edits it can not make.  Layers make it possible to use Photoshop in a non destructive manner.   However often you will not because you know how to do things well.  And while you working in Photoshop nothing is committed till you save and you can back up in history and undo steps you don't feel work as well as you want. The big problem is Layers made in Elements  or Photoshop or and other image editor are not support in by Lightroom for lightroom does not support layered tiff files lightroom does not have layers support. Its limited to a flat image and recorded local edit modifications steps.

                Thank you very much!  I just wish that PSE was 16 bit.  I may have to start using Photoshop.
