We all know what Lightroom, we know that it is a powerful post processing tool created by Adobe. But do we really understand what Lightroom is all about? Or are we just using it plainly for photo editing purposes?
In this article, we will talk about why did it become famous, the advantages and disadvantages, and other things that will help you better understand the program.
When Adobe has launched its first beta Lightroom version, there were photographers who got curious, although bugs and other issues were expected at that time, hundreds of photographers bought the beta version. In 2007, Adobe decided to relaunch the product and fix all the bugs and issues so that it will give comfort and convenience to professional photographers. One of the things that most users like about the program are Lightroom presets, or the filtered images that can be easily applied to one or more images at once.
Adobe Lightroom has its own strengths and weaknesses, it is also far from being a replacement of Adobe Photoshop. The good thing about Adobe is that they made it clear to their users that Lightroom is different from Photoshop although there are some similarities within their interface. Today, I can say that Adobe has fulfilled its goals, and that is to provide assistance to photographers to help them simplified and speed up their workflow.
Today, in Lightroom 6.3, the program can now execute several editing tasks such as organizing images, creating Lightrom presets, slideshows and more. Moreover, Adobe has fixed some issues and improved the facial recognition features, import and export, and merging of HDR and Panorama images. Also, with Adobe’s creative cloud services, users can now experience the best editing controls within Lightroom mobile and web application.
So, what are you waiting for? Try out Lightroom for your images and see the big difference not just in the image outcome, but in terms of saving a lot of time, money and effort.
