Superior noise reduction
Achieve amazing, natural-looking results from your high ISO images with all-new state-of-the-art noise reduction technology. You won't need more than what's built in to Lightroom 3 to get the cleanest images at any ISO.
One-click adjustments for multiple images
Save time when processing photographs that were shot under consistent conditions by applying the same Develop settings to all the images in a group at once using presets or the sync feature.
Use Lightroom seamlessly with Flickr, a Yahoo! service. When friends or clients post comments and ratings on your Flickr galleries, you can immediately see their feedback in the Lightroom 3 Library alongside your images.

Speed up day-to-day imaging tasks and process your images faster by taking advantage of cross-platform 64-bit support. Use the advanced memory handling capabilities of the latest Mac OS and Windows operating systems.
Save time by instantly applying favorite looks to images. When you've perfected a look that you particularly like for an image—a high-contrast black-and-white effect or a super saturated color look, for example—you simply save the settings as a preset and apply it to your other photographs at any time. Many presets are included with Lightroom, and thousands more are available from the thriving worldwide community of Lightroom photographers and experts.
Easy-to-share slide show videos with music
Show your images to clients, friends, or family with more style and flair using elegant slide shows with music. Slide shows are a breeze to create, and you can share them easily by exporting them as videos, even in high definition.
Instantly import and view images as you shoot them with tethered capture, available for select cameras. Use it to make an immediate, highly detailed check of your shot, the lighting, or the shooting setup. Or get instant feedback from clients or subjects.
Tight Photoshop integration
Select one or multiple photos and then automatically open them in Adobe Photoshop for detailed, pixel-level editing or to merge multiple photos into a panorama, a high dynamic range photo, or a multilayered file. After making your edits in Photoshop, see the results immediately back in Lightroom.

Lightroom 3 simplifies enormously the process of preparing photo captures for use, whether as web or print applications. It facilitates quick organization & preview, raw enhancement, printing, and web uploading of photos.
The "library" module permits quick organization of picture groups. The amazing, work-saving catalog system allows rapid naming, labeling & flagging, copying, metadata editing & review, and filtering of files, then presents a robust preview for easy access to the rest of the photographic workflow. A stellar feature of the file handling is the (relatively) low memory burden placed on computer RAM -- most all of these activities originate from small files that make good use of the .dng formatting.Read more ›
I had bought and used Elements 3 and 7, and while pretty good enhancers, there organizational abilities were weak. By weak, I mean, once they were catalogued and or key worded, they were fine, but the key wording was tedious.
Enter LR3. It doesn't have the capability of Elements (or photoshop either, I assume) but it does have enough capability to handle 90+% of what I do. What I usually do is correct color and exposure, saturate or desatureate some colors to enhance the image or de-emphasize the back ground, sharpen things up a bit and or decrease noise, mostly luminous, and apply the lens correction feature. I have also used the curves feature and the section I think they call shade, saturation and Lumination to make local adjustment to brightness and color. All in all, I can make almost all reasonably exposed photos, (+-2.5 stops) look pretty good. The program doesnot have the capability to distort shape, color or texture for artistic purposes, which I do not do at this time. The program does have a perspective correction section which I have had reasonable success with on the small number of uses I have had with it.
I have dabbled in the other features, such as healingand red eye reduction (easy and effecetive), paint brushing, tinting etc. My experience here is limited, but the features seem to be effective.
Its real standout is organization.Read more ›
Performance: Lightroom 3 works amazingly well on computer running a 64bit OS like win7. After watching a few tutorial videos on the program I was able to add lightroom to my work-flow and get files edited and to my clients about twice as fast as just using BR/PS.
1.Noise reduction (simple and awesome)
2.Making small to medium adjustments to photos quickly
3.Managing photo meta data
4.cataloging and sorting
5.getting images to the web

However, I want to bring to your attention one serious potential technical problem with software designs like Lightroom. My own professional background has included a stint in software design and programming so the following is information that I want to share with you, but it is information that you will most likely not hear about in the photographic press or other locations that are likely to be talking about Lightroom. Here is the issue: * Central to its core and necessary for operation of Lightroom is a proprietary database system that holds all user entered data for recipe or change files to your RAW development, as well as dozens of other variables and user entered and program generated data and variables. Lightroom *does not* embed the change information into the image files. This is a very dangerous design leap in the making of Lightroom. Why do I say that? What can go wrong here?Read more ›
