Time-lapse photography fascinates me. In this tutorial, I demonstrate how to use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop to create time-lapse video clips and then how to tie these sequences together to create a complete movie. Most people do not understand that Adobe Photoshop is also a powerful video editor. You can quickly edit video clips, add transitions between clips, and add a sound track without leaving Photoshop!
Adobe Photoshop plus Adobe Photoshop Lightroom’s bulk image processing power are all that most photographers need to produce high-definition time-lapse movies without extra costs or complexity. That said, Photoshop is no substitute for advanced video editing software like Adobe Premiere or Adobe After Effects. But the results, as you can see in the short sample below, that you can create with nothing but Lightroom and Photoshop are pretty fantastic.
