About this product Product Information Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 is designed for the professional photographer to be able to import, manage, edit, and organize multiple images, all at the same time in one piece of software. It is industry standard software, especially for RAW images. Some of the improvements from Version 1 of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom include faster importing, improved noise reduction, better lens and perspective correction, and more useful watermarking of images en masse. You can also take those same images and upload them to Facebook, Flickr, or SmugMug from inside Lightroom. Slideshows with text and music can also be created without switching to another app. Though designed mostly for images, there are also improved video capabilities as well, including support for HD video.
Lightroom, unlike Photoshop, is built from the ground up for photography and the unique workflow that we have as digital photographers. Rather than dealing with 3D, vector graphics, and other general graphics tasks that aren't of interest to most of us, Lightroom distills the features down to what is important - image management and optimization.
