How Lightroom Supports Your Workflow

1. Import

  • Robust tools to handle large shoots
    Speedily process high-volume shoots by automatically importing images whenever media cards or cameras are connected to your computer. Then automatically rename files, organize folders, and make nondestructive adjustments as images are imported.
  • Import/export presets
    Streamline the importing and exporting of your files by saving your frequently used settings in stored presets, which you can recall and apply when needed.
  • Automatic conversion to DNG
    If desired, automatically convert your images from proprietary file formats to the publicly available Digital Negative (DNG) format as they are imported, or easily export photographs from your Library in DNG format.

2. Manage

  • Multiple viewing options
    Quickly find and select your best shots with flexible display options like the Grid view for groups of thumbnails, the Loupe view for zeroing in on fine detail in a single image, or the Compare view for displaying two or more images side by side.
  • Flexible organization of images
    Bring order to voluminous image libraries by grouping your photographs in stored collections. Create collections for different tasks or subjects, and group similar images within a collection to organize them further.
  • Manual thumbnail reordering
    Put your images in the order that you need them for any particular task by selecting any number of photographs in your Library--continuous or not--and then simply dragging them to a new location on the Grid.
  • Easy file renaming
    Make your photographs easier to find and keep in sensible order using the Lightroom renaming feature. Simply set naming rules, and Lightroom automatically renames your images as they're imported.
  • Single or group metadata stamping
    Organize and annotate your images by adding metadata to a single photo or to groups of selected images. Save metadata sets as presets, which you can apply with one click.
  • Image versions without duplication
    Create as many alternate versions of an image as you desire without overloading your hard drive. Then, switch between versions with a single click.
  • IPTC/EXIF/XMP metadata support
    Read, add, or edit a comprehensive set of metadata entries, including IPTC, EXIF, and XMP data.
  • Metadata stamping on output
    Stamp crucial metadata--such as copyright notification, captions, and keywords--on print jobs or exported images so you can search on it later.
  • Keyword synchronization
    Make keywords consistent even if you're using Lightroom on two different computers by importing and exporting keyword sets to external, transferable files.
  • Offline image management
    Work with your image library in Lightroom even when some or all of the actual photo files are stored on offline media.
  • Easy Library backup to CD/DVD
    Help ensure the safety and preservation of your photographs by backing them up to CD or DVD using simple built-in tools.
  • Simple keywording
    Easily organize your photographs and make them searchable with keywords that make sense to you. Assign keywords to a single image or groups of selected images--just type and apply.

3. Develop

  • Easy-to-use white balance, exposure, and contrast controls
    Quickly perfect white balance, exposure, and tone curves in your images, including camera raw files, with familiar slider controls, or enter numeric values for the most precise adjustments.
  • Simple yet powerful tone curve editor
    Precisely control the tonality and contrast of your images by individually targeting highlights, midtones, and shadows using sliders and visual controls.
  • Integration with Adobe Photoshop
    Instantly send any number of images to Adobe Photoshop (sold separately) for advanced editing, and see the changes you've made reflected in the Lightroom Library when you're done.
  • Advanced hue, saturation, and luminance editing
    Enhance color saturation and remove color casts in your images with individual control over six color ranges each for hue, saturation, and luminance.
  • Nondestructive editing
    Enjoy robust support for more than 140 camera raw formats, and experiment with confidence. Adjustments you make to images in Lightroom won't alter the original data, whether you're working on a JPEG, TIFF, DNG, or camera raw file.
  • Fast zooming
    Check sharpness, noise, or small details with nearly instant zooming--a simple keyboard command or mouse click toggles between 100% magnification and a full-image view. Smoothly navigate highly magnified areas using the Hand tool in the photo preview pane.
  • Convenient before/after comparison mode
    View a side-by-side display of your original picture and a duplicate that shows the effects of your edits as you make them, or display the before and after states in a split view of the image. Toggle either view between portrait and landscape modes, and even see images in "lights out" view.
  • Finely tuned black-and-white conversions
    Convert color images to black-and-white with precision. Familiar sliders allow you to control the contrast and detail based on the colors in the original photograph.
  • Synchronized adjustments across multiple images
    Edit large numbers of images faster by creating presets that you can apply to many photographs at once, or edit one image and then synchronize your adjustments to other photos you select.
  • Explicit history tracking
    Retrace your adjustments to any image--the History panel tracks them automatically as you edit--and instantly return to any state of the photo that you choose.
  • Dust buster
    Erase dust spots from an image with a single click.
  • Easy-to-use crop and straighten tools
    Crop and straighten your photographs in a snap.
  • Red-eye removal
    Quickly eliminate red eye when it occurs in your flash photos.

4. Present

  • Fast, high-quality printing
    Quickly and visually format high-quality prints, whether working with one photo or 100, on one page or many. Recall your favorite layouts with saved presets and enjoy speedy output, even of large files.
  • Live preview of HTML or Flash based web galleries
    Create HTML or Adobe Flash¨ based web galleries for online presentation with little effort and no programming, and preview the results in Lightroom before you publish them to your site.
  • Single-click web publishing
    Save your web server information in Lightroom as an FTP preset, and then publish your Flash or HTML galleries with a single click. There's no more need for a separate FTP client application in your imaging workflow.
  • Sophisticated slide shows
    Use the simple controls in Lightroom to create and play elegant slide shows, and include background music from your digital music library, including iTunes.
  • Signature stamps
    Stamp your slide shows, web galleries, and printed output with your studio or business logo for an added professional touch.

5.0 out of 5 stars I lost over 40gb by switching to Lightroom February 27, 2007
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
Adobe Lightroom is amazing. I have been using it since the first beta, it just wasn't something I could switch to. At a studio I work at they have Capture One, which is an amazing piece of software, but I found it lacking when it comes to organizing "my" photos. I bought Apples Aperture when it came out, and it blew me away. Aperture has the loupe, (now found in bridge cs3), light table (Lightrooms new compare feature), which is amazing for setting up comps, if you like to do story work on your photos. Aperture has a rejection tag that you can use to reject photos to delete later (bad blur, or too many like shots), Lightroom now has this feature as well--you just press X, then when you are ready to rid yourself of those click the delete rejected photos button, if you rejected it accidentally press U, if you have a favorite pic just press P to "pick" it. Aperture has stacks, which if you shoot multiple exposures (hdr, pano, etc) they can be stacked up and you can choose a pick, Lightroom in version 1 now has this as well. The other big feature any other raw program needs to compete with Aperture for me is their collections. Its similar to a smart playlist in iTunes, you can sort by rating, keyword, what have you. Lightroom now has this as well, meaning you can pick your favorite waterfall photos from several years of shooting and put them in a logical folder, meaning no extra space to store your favorites. This feature, and rejection caused me to loose over 40gb by switching to Lightroom!

While my review may seem as though Lightroom copied the best features from Aperture and improved upon them, for the most part that's true. The best part is they improved soo many other features. If you have used Aperture, or iPhoto, you know how big a joke their clone stamp tool is.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's about time... February 22, 2007
It feels like I've tried them all. Windows Digital Imaging Suite, Adobe Photoshop Elements and so on. They all had strengths and weaknesses. What one did well, the other failed at miserably (and visa versa). Along comes Photoshop Lightroom and it's like a ray of light in the darkness.

I'll try to cover the highpoints:

#1 Speed: While it's not as fast as RawShooter Premium (perhaps the best on the market but sadly gobbled up by Adobe) it handles RAW files like most other programs handle JPGs. Once it has cataloged the collection, thumbnails spring up reasonably quick. The program itself is snappy, with a fast load up and responsive controls.

#2 Interface: In a word... "elegant". The interface feels professional and has innumerable settings to accomplish what you want. Heck, a simple hotkey and all the "clutter" is dimmed so you can focus on your image. hit again, and all the controls black out, leaving just your wonderful (or perhaps not-so-wonderful) photo

#3 Power: The tool suite (to me) feels quite powerful. Elements (4) will never again find its way to my hard drive and Photoshop CS2 is on just as a backup for those hard-to-handle jobs. I really feel like I can do any image adjustment I might want without having to launch a 3rd party program. Granted, I haven't played with the "develop" as much as I'd like, so I'm not sure about tools like dodge, etc.

#4 One program: I no longer have to open Digital Image Suite to catalog the files, then open them up in Photoshop Elements for editing and maybe launch Photoshop CS2 for the in-depth stuff. If I had to pick one program, this would be it. Would I pay the current retail for it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Seamless Integration with Photoshop April 6, 2007
Format:CD-ROM|Verified Purchase
I've only been using Lightroom for a day, but I was pleasantly surprised with the Photoshop integration. Just hit Cmd-E, and Lightroom creates a copy of the photo (with our without the changes you applied in Lightroom) for editing in Photoshop format, and groups that copy in a stack with the original. As you save your changes in Photoshop, the image is updated in Lightroom.

I felt that the workflow was very smooth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still a lot of rough edges February 23, 2007
I've been using Lightroom since its first beta, and overall I like it a lot. Its interface is pretty slow and unresponsive, but I've actually sat down and timed myself, and despite its sluggishness I still find myself accomplishing a great deal more in less time than I could have in the formerly holy trinity of Bridge, ACR and Photoshop. The highlight recovery, fill light and HSL adjustment sliders alone save me so much time it's not even funny.

Suffice to say I'm very happy that it's finally been released as a commercial product, but in all honesty, I wish it would have had at least another five public beta revisions before this point. Many of the features they snuck into the GM which we beta users had never seen before are just plain awful--the implementation of "stacks" in particular--and could have benefited greatly from some user feedback. Other features still seem woefully incomplete. Pretty much every module after "Develop" in the topmost toolbar feels like an afterthought which nobody really wanted to dedicate any real time to; slideshows don't work at all for me, the web galleries are painfully simplistic and inflexible, and color management support in printing is just plain horrible (it can't even FIND any of my ICC profiles so the only choice I get is to let the printer do its own color management).

I still like it much better than Aperture, but I really don't think Adobe should be charging money for it just yet. What's worse is that their online bug report form is broken, so there's no way for us early adopters to provide feedback anymore now that the public forum on the Adobe Labs site has been put to pasture. Get the demo and try it out before you plunk down $200 for it. It's still a little green for my tastes, but I do have high hopes for the future.
