Personal Review of Adobe Lightroom

  • People are making big debates and arguments as to which software serves better.
  • Lightroom and Photoshop have their own unique features.
  • Lightroom is not just a simple post processing tool.

I have been in the photography industry for several years now and I’ve also used a lot of post processing tools along with it. Among all the tools that I’ve encountered with, Lightroom is my favorite as it helps me save time and effort in modifying my images. Ever since I got its first version, I know that this software will provide better service to its users.

LR1111Before Lightroom was officially announced,  I thought that it’s just a simplified version of Adobe Photoshop wherein it can enhance images by using filters. But as days go by, my impression became a myth because Lightroom was definitely far from Photoshop.  The program contains more useful and effective tools like the seven editing Modules (library, develop, map, print, web, slideshow, and book), presets, and more.

People are making big debates and arguments as to which software serves better.  But, Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop have their own unique features. It shouldn’t be an issue from the start since the two software were built and developed by Adobe. Photoshop is dealing with more complex editing details while Lightroom is fast, convenient to use and can create portrait Lightroom presets.

There are a lot of people asking me if I would prefer Lightroom to photographers, well, the answer is yes. Nowadays, as photographers, we need something like Lightroom to help us with our editing workloads. Photoshop has actions, but the presets are easier to create. Presets are basically the heart and soul of the program. It can be used and modified all over again, plus, it can be applied to one or more images at once and with just a few and simple clicks.

Lightroom is not just a simple post-processing tool. It allows us, photographers, to live a simple, happy and joyous life because we’re allowed to modify our images the easiest way as possible.
