My love affair with Lightroom began at first sight, and it remains my photo processor of choice. Easily swayed by attractive looking software, I was taken in by Lightroom’s elegant dark gray interface before ever clicking a button. Without cracking open its accompanying user guide, I was able to muddle my way intuitively through it; using it to organize and catalog thousands of photographs.
Lightroom also provides some solid processing tools which allow me to easily optimize my photographs: from correcting white balance, tone, and contrast, to black-and-white conversions, noise, blemish, sharpness, and lens correction, and a ton more features.
And where Lightroom truly shines for me is its ability to produce pretty slick looking photo galleries for the web with the click of a button; making it an ideal platform for photographers who want to quickly share work in various mediums (including exporting to Flickr and other third-party stock sites) with minimal effort.
