What is Adobe Photoshop Lightroom?

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


The most common release is 1.00.0000, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. The setup package generally installs about 64 files and is usually about 947.91 KB (970,663 bytes).
