Lightroom is Adobe’s professional all-in-one image cataloguing, editing and RAW conversion software. It’s available with Photoshop as part of Adobe’s subscription based Photography Plan but for the time being it’s also available separately as a standalone program on a ‘perpetual’ licence as Lightroom 6.

Lightroom shares the same RAW editing tools as Adobe Camera Raw, though they’re arranged into a more direct and efficient interface. It’s adjustments are non-destructive and it works directly on RAW files, TIFFs, JPEGs and Photoshop PSDs – there’s no need to go through a separate RAW conversion first.

If your primary interest is photography rather than layered montages, detailed retouching and illustration, then you may find that Lightroom does almost everything you need. It also supports plug-ins, for effects and tools not provided by Lightroom itself.
