I rarely use Photoshop CC for photos unless I need to remove parts of an image that I wasn’t aware of when I shot it so I strictly use Lightroom 4 for all of my editing including sharpening. It was mentioned to me it’s better to use Photoshops High Pass Filter for sharpening, does anyone have any experience with both Lightroom and Photoshop to offer some insight to this?

There are so many different ways to do things. I think everyone need to try them to find out that works for them personally. What High Pass Filter is famous for is the fact that the only edges are sharpened and any areas in the image which are not an edge are left untouched. A lot of photographers find it easier when playing with sliders of let say Unsharp Mask, Smart Sharpen in Photoshop or Sharpening in Lightroom.

When using Lightroom what is sharpened and what is not can be controlled by the
Masking slider in the Detail>Sharpening tab.
After sharpening the image with the Amount sliders use the Masking slider.
Hold the Alt/Cmd key down when sliding the Masking slider. What is White is sharpened, What is black is not.
The further right the slider, the more sharpening is limited to edges.
This is an easy way to not sharpen skies and other large areas of a photo
which will turn black when moving the slider to the right.
