Nowadays, post-shooting process is a mandatory thing in almost every sphere of photography. In addition to Photoshop, Adobe has developed a powerful tool to collect, edit and distribute your photos – Photoshop Lightroom.

First of all, Lightroom can convert RAW images to accustomed graphic format (JPEG). RAW files contain plenty of digital information and easier to convert to other formats than JPEG. Typically, cameras have special adjustments to shoot in RAW. Lightroom transforms RAW information code into the picture. Moreover, RAW flexibility allows adjusting image parameters and save them as a graphic file.

Nevertheless, Lightroom is not just a ‘’RAW transforming machine”. Put all your photos together and create an album for reliable storing. It can also help you in performing different basic graphic manipulations with your images such as balance and tone adjustments, picture corrections and quality improvements in your photos and integrate several images into the one picture.

Lightroom is even more preferable for beginners in many cases as it has a simple interface, which is easy to use, while Photoshop may seem too complex. In addition, it saves the original image, so you may apply various effects and settings without a fear of losing of an initial file.

However, not only novices will appreciate Lightroom as a useful application. It’s also perfect when you need to work with a great numbers of images (celebrations, ceremonies etc.). You can freely move, organize, apply preferences, print and share your photos to social networks. Another advantage is a possibility to use Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop together as they perfectly interact.
