About

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (often referred to as LR) is one of several professional level photo editing and management tools. While previous versions were available for purchase, the latest versions are available by subscription to Adobe's Create Cloud suite of tools. The open source software package darktable is often suggested as a free alternative to Lightroom.

Unlike Adobe Photoshop, which offers a huge set of image editing features applicable to a wide range of fields (including photography but also graphic design, game development, etc) Lightroom was purpose-built for photography. As such it offers features and uses a vocabulary that are much better suited to a typical photographer's workflow.
