The HSL tool in Photoshop and Lightroom/ACR is great for punching up the saturation of colors in a sunset. But it can also create color banding in the smooth sky gradient. In this tutorial, you'll learn how to get amazing sky color, without color banding, in either Lightroom or Photoshop.

Ultimately, Lightroom is more prone to color banding if you aren't careful. But with proper technique, can yield results as good or nearly as good as Photoshop. Both are great tools, and it is important to understand the differences between them in order to get the most out of your images.

I don’t believe I’ve ever found a camera that automatically captures the beauty of the world I see, so I use Lightroom, Photoshop, luminosity masking, or HDR for nearly all of my images.
