I do as much as I can in Lightroom /Camera Raw which is non destructive and then come into Photoshop for the elements that cannot be done in ACR e.g. compositing, masking etc
TBH I rarely use shake reduction - I prefer to get as much of the image right from the start - that means trying to take the initial image without shake, using a tripod/support/ convenient wall etc as much as possible.
Cheers Dave for the reply
normally im just walking about taken pictures thus the reason for using shake reduction but its only a very small amount I would use,
I do like using shake reduction but i have to say its abit strong/harsh,
normally i would make a copy of the layer and apply shake reduction, then use a mask and keep what i want, I looked into changing the opacity and blend layer but it dose not do a good job,

Yeah. If there's motion blur, I toss it. No mercy, out it goes.
Explore high ISO, large aperture, whatever it takes to keep shutter speed high enough.
In general, the golden rule applies: Get everything right as early as possible in the process. So that's scene > camera > raw processing > pixel editing. When you get really good at it, you no longer need Photoshop at all (and have saved yourself a ton of time and effort).
Im using an old 7d which has alot of grain at even at 320 ISO which is normally what i have it at or at 640, not much of a fan with the sharpening in cameraraw, noise reduction is good but bring in back the detail with with sharpen and using the masking just dosnt work well for me
