I’ve been playing about with Lightroom a bit more, tinkering with shots taken for previous reviews. I definitely think I’m getting far better image clarity than I was with Photoshop. Note too that the images I’ve been using are jpegs. Theoretically I should get even better results by setting the camera to save in RAW format.
In all instances the original Photoshop image is either left or top, with the Lightroom version right or bottom.
