Advanced Healing Brush — Make your images spotless with a single brush stroke. Adjust the size of the brush and move it in precise paths. Unwanted objects and flaws — even those with irregular shapes like threads — just disappear.

Upright — Straighten tilted images with a single click. The Upright tool analyzes images and detects skewed horizontal and vertical lines, even straightening shots where the horizon is hidden.

Radial Gradient — Emphasize important parts of your image with more flexibility and control. The Radial Gradient tool lets you create off-center vignette effects, or multiple vignetted areas within a single image.

Smart Previews — Easily work with images without bringing your entire library with you. Just generate smaller stand-in files called Smart Previews. Make adjustments or metadata additions to the Smart Previews and apply your changes to the full-size originals later.

Video slide shows — Easily share your work in elegant video slide shows. Combine still images, video clips, and music in creative HD videos that can be viewed on almost any computer or device.

Improved photo book creation — Create beautiful photo books from your images. Lightroom includes a variety of easy-to-use book templates, and now you can edit them to create a customized look. Upload your book for printing with just a few clicks.

Location-based organization — Find, group, and tag images by location, or plot a photo journey. Automatically display location data from GPS-enabled cameras and camera phones.

Fast cross-platform performance — Speed up day-to-day imaging tasks and process images faster with cross-platform 64-bit support for the latest Mac OS and Windows operating systems.

Tight Photoshop integration — Select one or multiple photos and automatically open them in Photoshop to perform detailed, pixel-level editing. See your results immediately back in Lightroom.

Highlight and shadow recovery — Bring out all the detail that your camera captures in dark shadows and bright highlights. Now you have more power than ever before to create great images in challenging light.

Selective adjustment brushes — Expand your creative control with flexible brushes that let you adjust targeted areas of your photo for just the look you want. Selectively adjust brightness, contrast, white balance, sharpness, noise reduction, moiré removal, and much more.

Superior noise reduction — Get amazing, natural-looking results from your high ISO images with state-of-the-art noise reduction technology. Apply noise reduction to the entire image or target specific areas.

Nondestructive environment — Set your creativity free in a nondestructive editing environment that lets you experiment without limits. Your original images are never altered, and it’s easy to reverse your steps or save multiple versions of any photo.

Advanced black-and-white conversion — Gain powerful control over the tonal qualities that make or break black-and-white images. Precisely mix information from eight color channels when you convert to grayscale.

One-click adjustments to multiple images — Save time when processing many images. Apply the same Develop settings — exposure or contrast, for example — to all the photographs in a group at once using presets or syncing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lightroom vs. Aperture -- Detailed Review June 11, 2013
By Hankk
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
I've used both Aperture and Lightroom for several years. I was originally an Aperture user, who kept kept trying out Lightroom (LR) every time there was a new version out, but giving up and going back to Aperture. I switched permanently to LR about six months ago, and recently upgraded to LR5. With this review I wanted to give a balanced comparison of the pros and cons between the two programs. At the bottom, I also have some thoughts on the LR4 -> LR5 upgrade.

Aperture is an Apple product and only runs on a Mac; LR is available for both OS X and Windows.

Overall, Aperture and LR are eerily similar. (Aperture came out a few months before LR did, and it looks like both Adobe and Apple have copied each other extensively since then.) The vast majority of their features are shared by both. They are both designed to manage large libraries of photos -- 100,000+ images is not a problem at all. Their editing tools are both much stronger than simpler programs, such as iPhoto. They both have batch processing, where edits to one image can be applied to a series of photos automatically. Both have 'Smart Collections,' where you can make a virtual library based on various arbitrary criteria. Both have full support for viewing and editing the EXIF and IPTC metadata behind your images. They have similar features for rating images: 1-5 stars, and you can easily compare two photos side-by-side. Both do non-destructive editing, and both are very good with RAW files. You can tag with GPS data easily in either one. Both have broadly similar import and export capabilities. Both allow you to 'brush' on your edits locally (e.g., paint a region to adjust it to higher contrast -- not just make global adjustments).

Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I've been using Lightroom since the 1.0 betas were out, and I've seen the software grow over that time. LR 3.0 was the breakout version, practically demanding photographers to buy it. LR 4.0 brought to the table around 90% of the things you'd need Photoshop for. Lightroom 5 offers some minor improvements over Lightroom 4 that offer some valuable tools but might not be a justifiable upgrade for some. Photography is my hobby, and I got used to just throwing photos in folders and uploading them in a haphazard fashion. Lightroom brought to the table a discipline regarding my own workflow, so when I take my photos, I import them into Lightroom and control the entire process from input to export - whether it's to Smugmug (or another service), to print or to PDF/books.

If you're new to Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, despite the name, isn't Photoshop. It does photographic editing, but the program is a DAM - a digital asset manager. All of your photos are edited non-destructively and you can always revert to any step in the process. Lightroom is a powerful library, so you can organize your photos into collections, virtual collections and catalog/keyword/rank your photos as you wish. I can easily add geolocation information to my photos (either from a GPS or drop/drag on a map.) The software supports tons of camera RAW formats along with JPG and TIFF. I can take my photos, edit them, and export them to a slideshow, to the web, to a photo hosting site like Flickr or Smugmug, upload them to Facebook, or even create a book to be published. I can even make a video out of my photos. Lightroom over the years has saved me countless hours editing photos by allowing me to batch edit photos.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Worthy Upgrade for Many June 10, 2013
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
***EDIT*** June 11, 2013: After heavy use of the program, beyond the initial download, installation, and initial use, I offer the following- The interface has no major changes other than the addition of the new features. If you are familiar with LR4, you know it was sluggish. LR5 is much faster (tested on same machine as LR4). The speed difference was very noticeable. Importing is also much faster (again, tested on same machine). On first install, it converts your existing catalog (after giving you a dialogue box) and saves your old catalog files. Backups also seem much faster. The new features work very well in my opinion. However, the content aware feature is not quite as good as content aware in Photoshop CS6. But, more than good enough for most needs. I will update again if anything changes.

ORIGINAL REVIEW
***************

This is a first impression look at Adobe Lightroom 5.0 (public release, not the BETA). I am an Adobe Cloud Subscriber and downloaded Lightroom version 5.0 immediately upon release and installed it on my system ("free" with Cloud Membership). My usage and application is in the context of a freelance professional photographer who shoots (for fee) on a part-time basis. I manage two catalogs with Lightroom. Cutting to the chase, I believe Lightroom 5.0 is a worthwhile upgrade (especially at the upgrade price of $79) because it will add features that will help keep you out of Photoshop, which will speed your workflow and reduce frustration (unless you are a full time post-processing Photoshop master).
