Adobe Lightroom has become an essential tool for all my photography. It is really powerful and when you know what it can do it is pretty straightforward.
Lightroom not only works as a database to catalogue your photos and videos but it also does a lot to allow you to edit your images. I use Photoshop a lot less because I can do so much with Lightroom.
I also like that because I’m using the Creative Cloud version I can sync it to my iPad and iPhone and can not only review my images there but also make changes that then update back on the computer.
I also use Lightroom to tether to my camera so when I need to I can connect a cable, there is a wireless version but quite expensive on my camera to add this on, and as I take the photo it pops up on the laptop so that I don’t have to rely on the small screen on the camera where everything looks good.
Here is a video I make on why I use Lightroom and I show you how it works. I’m creating some more videos on Lightroom so you can learn the specifics.
