Yes. Which is oversimplifying both programs drastically.
Each is ridiculously powerful in its own right.
You want to do as much as you can in LR, then go to PS when needed.
LR edits are non-destructive, where PS edits are destructive to the original file.
Using LR, then exporting to PS allows you to work on a copy of the file that it then pulls back into LR so that even when doing destructive edits, you are not altering your source file.
The editing is nice, but LR has a WIDE set of features that should be taken advantage of.
Cataloging being one of the top things. Tagging, geotagging, and metadata management are awesome and often required to keep track of shoots.
You also have the ability to create photo books, slideshows, order prints, and even develop static sites. Not to mention a powerful API that made https://den-fi.com/ possible. The contents of the site are entirely populated by LR. The albums, tags, titles, captions, and descriptions are all generated by Lightroom, then synchronized w/ the content management system. I literally push 1 button, and boom. Complete site.
You also have the ability to shoot tethered directly into Lightroom. A feature you won’t use now, but sure might if you develop it into a career as a studio photographer.
So yeah. It’s a liiiiiiiiiitle more than what most novices use it for, which is unfortunately because some people use a whole bunch of different programs never knowing LR can do everything they needed and more.
