What is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2?

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a photography software program designed to assist users in managing large quantities of digital images and doing post production work.

It is not a file browser like Adobe Bridge, but rather an image management application database which helps in viewing, editing, and managing digital photos. Lightroom's closest competitor is Apple's Aperture program which similarly provides photo management and non-destructive editing capabilities.
