I am a creative photographer and I use Lightroom Classic and Photoshop (and Camera Raw) extensively in my workflow. They are, I believe, the best programs in their class and I cannot imagine functioning without them. I am, however, frustrated by inconsistencies in their interfaces. In Lightroom, for example, you adjust contrast by placing the cursor on the slider and then using arrow keys to increase or decrease contrast 5 values at a time (or 20 if you hold the Tab key). In Photoshop, however, adjustments are made by putting the cursor on the adjustment name, and then using arrow keys to increase or decrease contrast by 1 value at a time (or 10 if you hold the Tab key). I find the disconnect maddening.
I am frustrated as well by functional differences between Lightroom and Photoshop. Recent releases of Lightroom have seen dramatic improvements its interface and functionality, especially selection and masking, content-aware remove, color grading, tone curve, and the color panel. Increasingly I find there are things I can do in Lightroom but not in Photoshop. In Lightroom, for example, I can easily adjust the luminance of eight colors or use Tone Curve to adjust the luminance of colors in highlights, lights, darks, and shadows, things I cannot do as easily - if at all - in Photoshop (e.g. using Camera Raw as a filter, for example, but that is cumbersome).
I hope Adobe will consider porting many of the improvements in Lightroom's interface and functionality to Photoshop, admittedly a challenging undertaking. Perhaps Adobe fears that improving Photoshop would cannibalize sales of Lightroom but I doubt that would happen. Whatever similarities might result with respect to their interfaces and functions, the programs would remain fundamentally different: Lightroom's catalog-based workflow and non-destructive editing and Photoshop's use of layers and its many advanced editing functions will always set the programs apart; they will always meet different needs and appeal to different users.
