Lightroom is a photography program that is part of the Adobe Systems suite. Since its launch more than a decade ago, it has become an allied tool for professional photographers and digital imaging enthusiasts.
The ease and practicality of editing images has made it one of the most popular programs of the American software company. Among other things, it is useful for tinkering with presets, as well as making basic adjustments in brightness and contrast easy.
Tutorials from other professionals available in the app are also added to the list of benefits. With posts and tips from expert photographers, users can hone their skills and broaden their knowledge of digital imaging.
Two versions of the program are available, according to each person’s needs: Lightroom and Lightroom Classic. Both differ in matters regarding storage, editing, and the number of editing tools.

The Adobe page explains that Lightroom Classic “allows you to use a variety of third-party authoring, editing, and exporting plug-ins, including SmugMug, WordPress, and Costco.” The other version, on the contrary, focuses on the cloud and syncing photos between devices.
While Classic is a more comprehensive tool, Lightroom is useful for convenience: you can access your photos anywhere, anytime.
“Unlike Photoshop, which covers a wide range of creative disciplines, Lightroom was developed specifically to effectively manage the workflow of professional photographers, from photo management to finishing touches,” the American company says on its page about the functionalities.
One of the biggest advantages of this program is image management as it allows photographers to organize and find photos quickly and easily. They can not only rank them, but also find them by keywords and effective search options.

After importing the files comes editing. “Here you can change your settings to enhance every aspect of your photo. Enhance light and color, correct perspective, refine and add creative effects to make your images shine.
If you’re looking for non-destructive editing, Lightroom is an ideal choice because it allows you to make changes to a photo while not modifying the original file. In addition, it has presets that undoubtedly save time when converting images.
