Why should I use Lightroom if I already have Photoshop? Lightroom boosts your efficiency by handling all the tasks a digital photographer faces in one intuitive app. It includes powerfully simple adjustments, as well as the widest range of advanced tools for efficiently processing sets of images, organizing photo libraries, and sharing images.
What is the difference between Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop Elements? Lightroom is designed for both amateur and professional photographers, providing powerfully simple one-click features as well as leading-edge tools for advanced image processing. Photoshop Elements provides casual snapshooters with easy-to-use editing controls and automated options to enhance and share photos, as well as use them to create custom keepsakes.
Top New Features in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6
HDR images made easy
Create natural-looking or surreal images from extremely high-contrast scenes. Using HDR Merge, you can easily combine multiple shots taken with different exposure settings into a single high dynamic range image.
Capture super wide fields of view and amazing detail. Photomerge technology lets you stitch together multiple images, including raw files, to create seamless panoramas.
Import and perfect your photos faster than ever. Lightroom takes advantage of compatible graphics processors to boost its overall speed, especially when you’re enhancing images in the Develop module.
Quickly find images of family and friends, even without metadata tags. Select a face in one photo, and Lightroom searches for that person in all your other images. Categorize and group your photos based on faces.
Advanced video slide shows
Create beautiful, polished slide shows using still images, video and music along with professional effects like pan and zoom.
Improved web galleries
Showcase your work in more elegant, engaging and interactive web galleries. New HTML5-compatible gallery templates work with the widest range of desktop and mobile browsers.
Better control of filters
Precisely control which parts of your image are affected by the Graduated or Radial filters. Now you can use a brush to edit the filter’s mask, adding or subtracting filter effects wherever you want.
Easy photo sharing
Publish web galleries with Lightroom. Get feedback on your photos, start discussions and more — all from Lightroom on your mobile device or desktop.
