“It’s a relatively new thing to have one program that does it all and does it well. All in all, Lightroom is a really great product that is just short of a nine or ten. I don’t doubt that this is going to be a very popular application, and a no-brainer for professional photographers.” — Ars Technica

Simplify Photography from Shoot to Finish
Adobe Lightroom is designed for your digital photography workflow, helping you organize, manage, process, print, and show your images. Lightroom is a complete toolbox for professional photographers, organized into five modules. Each module focuses on a specific portion of the photographic workflow: the Library module is for importing, organizing, comparing, and selecting photos; the Develop module is for adjusting color and tone, or creatively processing photos; and the Slideshow, Print, and Web modules are for presenting your photos.
