10 essential time-saving Photoshop tips

By far the best Photoshop tip I can give is to buy Lightroom. It will save you many, many hours. When I used to do wedding photography, Lightroom was a joy to use, with many hundreds of shots cropped, shadows lifted, etc. in an hour or two. In Photoshop, that used to take me many hours. I got some of my life back!

Of course there is one key factor. Concentrate on getting composition, exposure, etc. right before you click the shutter! That is something that a great many people forget to do. Then it costs them hours in Photoshop correcting things, because they should have been standing somewhere different, or had the camera set differently in the first place. One of the advantages of being brought up on film is that you learned to do that instinctively!
