Lightroom combines photos into “collections” – virtual gatherings of files that can be quickly searched. It stores information about keywords, previews, and metadata not in each graphic file, but in a centralized database (SQLite engine). Therefore, the database can be accessed for photos currently in the DVD archive.

The program size is significantly smaller than Bridge, it starts faster and takes up less RAM. In general, Lightroom is designed exclusively for photographers interested in processing and cataloging photos, not integrating everything and everyone.

Another feature of the Photoshop Lightroom package is the division of working with photos into separate stages. Each of them has its functional module with a corresponding set of tools and settings palettes.

The functionality of the Lightroom package includes not only a RAW converter and image processing tools but also a powerful photo cataloging system, as well as tools for creating slide shows and web pages. Like many modern RAW converters, Lightroom uses the principle of non-destructive editing. This means that information about all operations and settings performed by the user is recorded in a service file, while the original image is saved unchanged.

This approach not only minimizes the likelihood of irretrievable loss of the originals of processed photos, but also makes it possible to create and print many different versions of the same image without the need to save a corresponding number of full-fledged graphic files, which quickly eat up free space on the hard drive. After finishing work on the photo, the user can save its processed version as a separate graphic file.

The program has five modules.

  • Uploading, cataloging, and searching photos (Library)
  • Correction of color and tonal parameters of images (Develop)
  • Creating a slideshow
  • Print
  • Creating web pages to publish image collections on the Internet (Web)
