However, in a more specific field, Adobe system is capable of producing more useful products. Now, if you ask young and professional photographers, the majority of them will tell you that they need a tool that will help them save time while editing their images.

    Luckily, their prayers was answered immediately. Adobe released another exciting tool called Adobe Lightroom. Unlike Photoshop where users need to modify their images manually, Adobe Lightroom allows its users to edit their images by simply using Lightroom portrait presets. In addition, Lightroom contains more exciting enhancement tools that will assist photographers with their editing workload.

    I had the chance to do a personal survey and I asked several young and professional photographers if they like Lightroom, how they use the program and how significant it is for their tasks. But before we start, let’s have a very quick background of Lightroom and its features.

Over the years, a lot of features have been added on to Lightroom. Here are some of the additional Lightroom Features:
