"For those who dont wanna go to the cloud"

What do you like best?

There is none that comes close to LR's features on windows at the moment, so if you are looking for a RAW files processor, this is the biggest option. Catalog handling is perhaps the most valuable thing here. Very powerful. Development settings are solid. Support for new cameras is constantly updated. Non-CC version.

What do you dislike?

Not as many color manipulation as Photoshop. Even with the recent improvements it is still slower than it should. Exporting files could be faster.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you dont need the extra features of the CC version, there is no better option atm on windows.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All the organizing and processing is done in LR Classic.

What is Adobe Lightroom Classic?

Adobe Lightroom Classic gives you one-click tools and advanced controls to make your photos look amazing and easily organizes all your photos on your desktop, and share in a variety of ways.

" Adobe Lightroom as much as possible to reveal the photographs"

What do you like best?

I'm a graphic designer and I'm working in photography, I've always worked in Adobe Photoshop, but knowing this tool I loved it because I can organize, label and catalog the photographs so that collections are created and perfect organization of the same.

You can tag the photographs and classify them so that if you take a photo shoot you can locate it from the best to the worst and choose the one you like the most.

You can also synchronize the photographs and be able to copy the information that was applied to one and place that configuration to all that have the same characteristics.

You can use brushes and masks and adjust specific areas of a photograph and change the attributes it brings when you take it.

You can make edits in the photos while retaining the attributes of the original photograph.

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I did not like about Adobe Lightroom is that you need training to be able to start using it, because the interface is a little complicated when you start using it.

The program is heavy and sometimes it takes a long time to load a picture and make an adjustment, especially if it is in RAW format.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using Lightroom since it allows you to organize the photographs and place them in folders creating photographic collections, in addition to allowing the professional edition of the photographs and synchronizing the photographs, once you know the tool it is difficult to get rid of it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

When I do a photo shoot, working with Lightroom facilitates my workflow since I can organize, catalog, tag and synchronize the photographs and allows me to create collections.

If you use all the tools that the program possesses, you will achieve a development of the photograph that may surprise you.

"La edición de fotografía al alcance de todos"

What do you like best?

Me gusta la posibilidad de importar con mi configuración prefijada personalizada con un solo clic, editar en lotes, (sincronización), los sencillos controles deslizantes para ajustes, herramientas puntuales, fácil de insertar y quitar de Photoshop ocasionalmente, marcar con colores y estrellas para diferentes usos, y exportar con nombres y tamaños de archivo según sea necesario. Una vez que pasas de la interfaz ligeramente desordenada, ¡es realmente muy intuitivo y fácil de usar! La edición de fotos al alcance de la mano de cualquier persona inexperta.

What do you dislike?

La interfaz resulta increíblemente intimidante y bastante desordenada. Un poco de auto-descubrimiento y algunos tutoriales web hacen que la interfaz parezca más asequible. Aun así cuesta bastante tiempo hasta que te enteras de los conceptos de Galeria, albumes, etc.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Sé que hay otras funciones para Lightroom Classic, pero si lo que busca es una herramienta para crear e implantar galerías de fotos web para su producto, sitio web o portafolio, y una manera fácil de editar fotografías esta es la solución.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilizo Lightroom para realizar ajustes básicos en formato.RAW, editar imágenes con mis propias funciones preestablecidas y convertirlas a formato.jpg para su entrega. No sabría editar fotos ahora mismo con otro programa, este en ese aspecto es muy intuitivo.Ahorro tiempo usando este software, y logro consistencia en todas mis imágenes, con mis configuraciones personalizadas. Tiene muchas formas de ordenar y buscar tus fotografías por lo que mejoras mucho tus búsquedas cuando tienes muchas fotografías.

"Powerful Raw Processing and Asset Management"

What do you like best?

Lightroom Classic is an excellent software for processing your raw images. It integrates well with Photoshop and allows you to work on multiple images in a very efficient manner. The Adobe raw engine allows for powerful processing, creative edits and creates clean images. One of the biggest benefits of the software is the library or catalog. It allows for metadata editing and tracking through multiple sessions allowing you to manage a large number of images or image sets and integrate them into each other. There are several other strong features integrated into the software like the Map for geotagged images, slideshow creator, and the book and print modules. One of the more powerful features though is the ability to create and import develop presets and profiles to assist in an efficient image editing workflow.

What do you dislike?

The software can be a resources hog and will slow down from time to time. I would like to see Adobe open up the software even more to improve 3rd party integration. Having custom shortcuts would be a great addition. There can be a bit of a learning curve, but it is reasonably quick to grasp./

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There are 2 industry standards. Lightroom Classic and Capture One. Capture One is more commercial photography oriented (but not exclusively) and Lightroom Classic tends to be used by the majority of photographers in the industry. Adobe Lightroom Classic has stronger integrations into the Adobe infrastructure and it has a lot more asset management capabilities. Lightroom Classic has been a staple in the industry for many years and it has become an integral part of most photographers' workflow to the point that many don't even use Photoshop anymore.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Lightroom Classic allows me to manage my image files and metadata in an efficient manner. It also allows me to edit large sets of Raw files quickly and effectively. Lightroom Classic allows you to do the majority of editing to an image without having to take it into Photoshop, and when you need to do some extra work, it is quick and easy to bring a file in and back.

"El mejor"

What do you like best?

Lightroom es un programa de edición que viene de la mano del gigante adobe, el cual se vio con la necesidad de crear un software que fuese unica y exclusivamente para la edificón de fotografías, haciendo asi un programa mas ligero que photoshop y mas sencillo que el mismo.

Lo que mas me gusta En Lightroom CC puedes tener las fotos almacenadas en tu disco duro, por supuesto que sí, pero al importarlas al programa, éstas se subirán automáticamente a tu cuenta en la nube de Adobe. Ahí se guardará tanto una copia del RAW original como los ajustes que le vayas haciendo. Todo de manera transparente, de modo que puedes dejar sin terminar de editar una foto en el ordenador de casa, subirte al tren y seguir editando esa misma foto, exactamente desde donde la dejaste, en el portátil. O incluso desde el móvil.

Otra cosa que me encanta del programa es su capacidad de operar con formatos de fotografía diferentes.

What do you dislike?

Lo que menos me gusta es que se te puede quedar corto el programa ya que al ser un derivado de photohsop, carece de cosas que su hermano mayor tiene, y es por los por lo que necesitarías los dos programas para realizar todo perfectamente.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es el mejor programa de edición de fotografía del mundo.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Me ha resuelto problemas en cuanto a los banners que tengo que realizar o los anuncios para otras empresas.

"Best Photo Editing Software Hands Down!"

What do you like best?

I have used Adobe Lightroom since its first version was released a long time ago. As is with anything Adobe related, you know you're getting a great product. Everything from its photo tools, to how you can organize your catalog to all the plug-in features with other products, it is the perfect post-photo editor on the market. There are other competitors, that might shine in certain areas better than Lightroom, but they always have a catch. One competitor doesn't have the wide camera support like Lightroom does. Besides all that, the ability for your catalog and photos to sync across multiple devices via Adobe's Cloud, works flawlessly.

What do you dislike?

The only small complaint is when you have a massive photo library catalog (mine is close to 150,000), when you are running Lightroom on an older iMac and trying to go through photos, it sometimes hangs on going to the next photo, along with the photo resolving to full-res, instead of it being pixelated.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you want a rock solid, powerful photo editing software, you cannot go wrong with Adobe Lightroom Classic. The integration of it with all the other Adobe family and its strong presence in the cloud through Creative Cloud, is what sets it apart from the competition. It's a complete package all around.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems I am solving is in regard to time. As new versions come out, tasks on editing photos become quicker and easier, which frees up my time not stuck in front of a computer and instead out in the world, shooting photos and perfecting my art.

"Lightroom: Rich in photo editing features"

What do you like best?

It has a great photo editor, with several filters.

Lets you organize my photos.

I can sync them with other devices.

It has a stylish and easy to use interface.

It offers high quality facilities.

What do you dislike?

I have no bad points to present. I really like all the features it offers me. However you could have more black and white filter options.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's perfect for editing your photos. super recommend it. Images are edited but with a natural effect. Great for anyone who works with photography just like me.Also good to use in photos that will be posted on social networks, has many features, you will love.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I needed a photo editor that gave me several filter options to put in the photos before posting to instagram. With it I was able very simply and intuitively to make precise clippings in the photos. Also, I can rotate the image to my liking, making the photo exactly in the position I want. What's more, give me a number of sizes and aspect ratios to choose a specific format.

"El mejor"

What do you like best?

1. Lightroom es construido para los fotógrafos.

Si bien Photoshop tiene todo lo que necesita, también tiene un montón de características que no necesita, como 3D, herramientas de vídeo y gráficos vectoriales. Estas características adicionales significan más espacio en disco (1 GB para Photoshop en comparación con alrededor de 100 MB de Lightroom).

2. Ligeros requisitos de procesamiento.

Lightroom funciona bien en un ordenador portátil o máquina de gama más baja. Es cierto que funcionará mejor en un equipo más rápido con más memoria, pero no hay ningún problema en utilizar Lightroom en un ordenador portátil sencillo

3. Gestión de imagen excelente.

La importación de Lightroom puede realizar copias duplicadas de sus imágenes, una para el catálogo, y otro como copia de seguridad, incluso hacerlo en diferentes formatos (por ejemplo RAW para el catálogo y DNG para su copia de archivos). La aplicación de palabras clave y meta datos a las imágenes de la importación es fácil, y se puede aplicar en el procesamiento, así como presets.

4. Potente motor de búsqueda y organización.

Debido a que el catálogo de Lightroom es un archivo de base de datos, es fácil de encontrar todas sus imágenes, ya sea por palabras clave o meta datos como el tipo de cámara, ISO, etc Lightroom también le permite crear colecciones de imágenes similares que hacen que sea fácil agruparlas.

What do you dislike?

No hay casi nada que no me guste, salvo su precio, bastante alto, algo que acostumbran los programas de adobe.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Es el mejor programa de todos

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sin este programa yo no sabría que hacer ya que mi trabajo depende de la fotografía el entorno audiovisual.

"Who needs a dark room when you have Lightroom Classic?"

What do you like best?

It's so easy to batch edit photos in Lightroom Classic. When you're working on a photoshoot with the same lighting across several shots, this comes in handy. If you've ever edited photos, you know that it's normal to apply the same effects to several pictures. You can even save your edits for future use after applying them. The program also keeps a running history of your edits so no matter when you approach your photos, you still have the originals available.

What do you dislike?

I feel like the way in which photos are organized could be improved, however, this is a personal preference and for some of my friends, they use Lightroom as their primary photo browser, not just as an editor.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are looking for a quick, fun, and easy way to organize, edit, and share your photos, you just can't beat Lightroom Classic.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Lightroom Classic is the first stop and often the last stop in my photo editing process. Photoshop is great, but it's better for spending a lot of time editing one image. When you're dealing with hundreds or even thousands of photos, you don't have time to open them all in Photoshop. Lightroom to the rescue. Transform your photo editing process with Lightroom Classic. Lightroom is designed to handle a large volume of photos without slowing down.

"Great retouching and editing tools"

What do you like best?

I used Lightroom primarily for retouching product photos. The ability to really dial in color correction and selective color editing is great. The heal/clone tool is one smart little robot.

The user presets are crucial once you get a look dialed in and can save it.

Seamlessly being able to open up a photo in Photoshop and edit it, save, and have it reflect in Lightroom is great.

What do you dislike?

I've got a 2017 Macbook Pro with the fastest processor and graphics card, but even then Lightroom tends to bog down and lag when I start doing some heavy editing with the clone or brush tools. It seems to compound after several photos. So I find that quitting and restarting the app helps every so often.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Personally I like it better than the new Lightroom. Classic maintained some of the more robust tools. But if you're looking for more user-friendly interface, the new Lightroom may be right for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've taken our in-house product photography to a higher level with the use of Lightroom. It's allowed a more streamlined workflow that would not have been possible with Photoshop alone.

"Photographer's Friend"

What do you like best?

Photoshop Lightroom Adobe Photoshop Lightroom because it contains the name of the full name and causes confusion. This actually makes sense. This is because the Lightroom can be thought of as a subtype of Photoshop with special functions that Photoshop can't do.

Even beginners can easily learn.

Photoshop does not want to use such as serious mastery.

Ready plug-ins and effects are nice.

I want to work in Lightroom for hours.

Sometimes Photoshop mixes, but Lightroom is very easy.

The interface is extremely great.

What do you dislike?

My biggest complaint is to go to the monthly paid system.

I would like to buy and pay for the software once.

Sometimes I do a lot of layer work, I'm having a freezing problem.

Apart from that, the software is very nice to work in that respect.

Adobe lighroom is Cloud-based and can work both locally and from the cloud. You can access all of your photos from the phones, tablets, notebooks, or any desktop.

Sorry, Adobe Lightroom classic is using a Local hard drive. Perhaps this is the biggest drawback.

My biggest complaint is to go to the monthly paid system.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Are you looking for the best program for raw editing ?

If so, this software is for you.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Add photos to the website and social media .I'm the photo editor of the media company I work for.

Adobe Lightroom is my biggest assistant.

It is one of the best raw processing programs.

Sometimes photographers bring bad pictures.

Thanks to Lightroom, I'm correcting even the worst picture.

It's more fun and easy to work with than Photoshop.

We are preparing extremely beautiful photographs for the work that our customers need. Thanks to the software we make creative effects. Our client admires our work.

"Amateur to Professional"

What do you like best?

Lightroom is very very easily to use, and very user friendly. You can import any amount of pictures all at once, save editing presets and levels, add those existing presets to any and all photos, work from the cloud, and can turn pictures that are good to great in seconds. There's also a good amount of retouching abilities within Lightroom and it makes it so easy.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would say I dislike about it is sometimes I do not want to backup photos to the cloud yet it asks pretty often when I want to with no option to "Skip Always" or flat out "Do not backup". The retouching abilities are a bit dulled down from say, Photoshop, but they do work and work well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time to really learn the software, because pictures can have MILLIONS of edits, but only a small amount of those edits really help. And no, HDR is NOT a good solution.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photography is a growing business, and you need Lightroom for it if you want to go to the next level. Sure, tons of things have "Filters" everywhere but nothing works like taking the time to sit and REALLY make your pictures your own.

"Adobe Lightroom classic a Different Image"

What do you like best?

Lightroom classic is a tool that organizes the images and manipulates them distinctly from the operating system that I am using. It allows me to import, save, view, organize, tag, edit and share a good amount of digital images. Unlike Photoshop, Lightroom does not affect the originals since they are separated from the modifications made.

It is excellent in terms of manipulation, if I want to reproduce text or make 3D quality is extraordinary as when working with videos helps me a lot to clean images and noises that I do not want.

It is excellent in terms of capture support for many digital cameras.

It maintains very the control of exhibition, control of color, clarity and reduction of noise. Export with watermark or customized size are incredible.

What do you dislike?

One problem that the application presents is that its speed of shifting images can be affected by being somewhat slow. Another of the limitations is that you can not perform many Photoshop functions, such as manipulation (add, remove or alter the ppearance of individual image elements), play text or 3D objects in Images or modifying pictures of images. Individual videos Its storage capacity is a problem but I have read that it is solved. You can not create or edit non-photographic images (such as drawings, symbols, linear arts or diagrams or maps), or render text or 3D objects.

Its cost is high, so many people prefer to go directly to Photoshop. It maintains certain limitations.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, I recommend the use of the tool, since its quality, efficiency and sharpness are surprising. I particularly like their quality and the handling and editing are impeccable. With the tool it is possible to make remote files which is very good because they can see it in real time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has allowed me to create slideshows from any number of photos, to which you can add music or a background to improve, such as in the creation of photo albums requested by our clients or delivering them to be reviewed in the same way as I realize the geographical organization of photos based on geolocation data incorporated or added manually.

In the reproduction of videos is very sharp and customers have been very satisfied.

"Don’t know what I’d do without you!"

What do you like best?

I love how Lightroom is not only available for PC or Laptop, but it’s available on my iPhone and iPad. I can pick up wherever I left off if I’m on the go. The platform doesn’t differentiate much between platforms either. Also, loving the use of my Apple Pencil with the application on the iPad. Seamless! Excellent photo management and organization. Camera and lens-based corrections. Brush and gradient adjustments with color and luminance masking. Face detection and tagging. Connected mobile apps.

What do you dislike?

Not so easy to use on an iPhone X. Unless you like small, intricate, and overly detailed tasks. The colors don’t seem to match when looking at edits from my Mac, to iPhone, to iPad. Also, there’s a lag after a bit of heavy editing in the application itself on my Mac.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you’re a student, check out their monthly student pricing!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Lightroom has made itself widely available and seamless on multiple devices of mine. My main problem was stopping an edit from my Mac and trying my best to continue on my iPhone. Now that I have an iPad Pro I can edit on the go with a larger screen and room to see minor details.

"ADOBE LIGHTROOM CLASSIC"

What do you like best?

Lightroom classic is a software that organizes images and manipulation was developed for Windows, macOS, iOS, Android and tvOS (Apple TV). It allows us to import, save, view, organize, tag, edit and share large quantities of digital images. Unlike Photoshop, these Lightroom editions are not affected by maintaining the original

Image and its applications are protected separately. Although it has something similar to the name of photoshop it does not have

performs many functions like this, such as manipulation, the reproduction of text or 3D objects in images or the modification of individual Video frames. Lightroom is not a file manager like Adobe Br.

It is excellent in capture support for many popular Nikon and Canon DSLR cameras.

It maintains very the control of exhibition, control of color, Sharpness and reduction of noise. Export with watermark or customized size are incredible.

What do you dislike?

One problem that the application presents is that its speed of shifting images can be affected by being somewhat slow. Another of the limitations is that you can not perform many Photoshop functions, such as manipulation

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes, I recommend the use of the tool since its quality, efficiency and nitides are surprising. I particularly like and like the results. With the tool it is possible to realize remote enlases which is very good because they can see it in real time.

Lightroom Classic made a rearrangement of its controls with the pop-up windows which gave a good turn for the organization of the work flow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to create slide shows from any number of photos, to which you can add music or a background

to improve With I am making albums of photographs requested by our clients or to deliver them that review

them in the same way I realize geographic organization of photos based on geolocation data incorporated

or added manually.

"Adobe Lightroom, much cleaner than a darkroom!"

What do you like best?

Adobe Lightroom's functionality is unsurprisingly phenomenal in the sheer amount of editing functionality and amazing edits you can pull out of your RAW photos. Lightroom also helps to organize your photos in the most comprehensive way.

What do you dislike?

I am hard pressed to find something that I disslike about Adobe Lightroom, but if required I would probably say that I am not a fan being prompted to backup my photos. I am already doing that through a different avenue and I wish I could turn off that prompt when closing the software (I may be able to turn it off, never looked)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend Adobe Lightroom to anyone who is serious about their photography. Lightroom's myriad of editing functionality can take even the most mundane or underexposed photo to the highest potential, stepping up your Instagram game like you've never seen.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Lightroom pushes the photos that I take for my freelance career to their maximum potential. Lightroom also keeps my photos organized and searchable in case I need to come back to them at a later point for clients.

"Easiest, Most Efficient Way to Keep Track of Photos! The Gold Standard of Photo Storage"

What do you like best?

The is so much that I adore about Adobe! For starters, I love the ability to store all of my photos securely in the cloud. They are stored securely there, I can quickly tag, sort, share and publish from my account. The second and equally important thing I treasure is the ability to do quick edits, or more indepth, detailed edits. The presets make it all so easy! I also appreciate the excellent level of customer support and training turtorials! you don't have to be an expert to take advantage of Lightroom! Frequent Upates, make each user's experience day by day!

What do you dislike?

The storage level included for each plan is not that much. I have had to upgrade my plan twice! I wish the storage included with each plan was a little higher, so I wouldn't have to panic everytime I upload additional photos.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Adobe Lightroom Useful in so many industries! It is easy to use and get started!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Photo Storage, editing, social media publishing. Editing can easily be done by novices and professionals.

"Photographer's Best Friend"

What do you like best?

This program allows you to combine basic elements of Photoshop with a dynamic workflow, in order to allow the user to process multiple photos with ease. The brush tool is an absolute lifesaver, and it allows you to adjust and edit each brush layer independently. (Which is MUCH faster to use than masking in photoshop). It also allows you to copy settings from one photo and apply it to a whole batch. Additionally, it has "auto mask" options, which allow you to select one element within a photo (ie when brushing over teeth, it automatically selects the tooth and not the gum line).

What do you dislike?

LR can lag at times, causing frustration. If you're working with 4k resolution or higher images, I notice that it has trouble loading/rendering a preview if you have added a lot of brush layers. The native presets are pretty bad, although they can provide a good starting point. Considering all of the free fonts that are available in Adobe Typekit, it would be nice if there was a section for free color treatments as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Definitely worth the subscription if you're editing more than 5 photos at a time or more than 20 in a month

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I wouldn't be able to do my job without this program! Some days, I'll need to export 50-100 photos, all with the same settings and file names. Lightroom makes that an absolute breeze. I use it every single day, and it makes my work go by so fast! LR also enables me to deliver uniform and consistent images, which is a requirement for my business.

"Stable and Immersive Photo Editing Software"

What do you like best?

The extensive options and tools available makes photo editing easy. The application is an all-in-one immersive editing experience, chock full of options for whatever style of editing you prefer.

What do you dislike?

Because of the size of the program, loading the program takes a while, it takes a lot of space on a computer, asks a lot of a computer, and culling through photos is a very long process. The library and sorting/rating options are fantastic, but I would love to see an easy way to add notes to specific photos, and a section for notes for a whole catalog. The spot tool is very picky, and is not a great predictor, causing mayhem if you click on the "wrong" spot. The "Copy Settings/Paste Settings" feature is extremely handy, although having to click the checkboxes you want is frustrating, and I want to see the option to add presets for specific settings to be copied and pasted so you are able to only apply the settings you want with more ease.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Adobe Lightroom Classic is a fantastic photo-editing program if you have a great computer to run it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Adobe Lightroom Classic contains a large database of develop options for photos, but I have also used it for applying my presets to video footage. This allows consistency throughout my photography and film business. You can backup photos easy, saving them to two different locations on your computer, and the option to connect to a mobile device is also a benefit. The ability to use radial filters, graduated filters, and local adjustments is a huge plus, making it easy to edit photos without taking them into Photoshop every time you require a basic skin edit.

"Photographers Best Friend"

What do you like best?

The non destructive editing and Library functions; being able to record different versions of the same image without being destructive is wonderful. The Ability to create Presets that help keep a consistent look across a shoot.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is clunky and needs updated. (Lightroom CC Addresses this to an extent) Catalogs are very confusing to people not used to the program. Better built in tutorials for advanced functions are needed.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Lightroom Classic is better for Local, Large Image databases where the Cloud is not needed. The new CC Version is more portable - but lacks a lot of the foundations of Classic for large Catalogs of images. In my opinion there should be one New program that can do either depending on your choosing.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The largest problem I had as a Photographer was keeping a look consistent across a shoot with ease - this is easily achieved with Lightroom Classics presets. It allows me to have faster turnarounds with Clients giving everyone a better experience.

"The Best Photo Developing App!"

What do you like best?

Quite easy to use and very powerful in preparing images for publication. Offers professional quality tools to make digital photos shine. Easy to input photos and has all of the tools structured in a way that would even be familiar to old school filmlab darkroom operators.

What do you dislike?

I have very few complaints about Lightroom Classic. The library might be the only weak spot, that could use some reorganizing. However I suspect that Adobe is no longer focusing on Lightroom Classic. This part of lightroom is not that user-friendly to non-Adobe Suite users.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take a close look at whether Lightroom or LightroomCC better suits your needs.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am a realtor who shoots all of my own photography for my property listings. I want these pics to really showcase the property and often they need touching up to brighten shadows, reduce blowouts through windows etc. and get the lighting right so the warmth of a property comes through.

"Somewhat Useful Software"

What do you like best?

I really like how Adobe Lightroom Classic can be used for so much more than just editing photos. I really like the photo organizing perks that come with this software. Adobe Lightroom Classic allows users to create a library where they can organize photos based on the events in which they were taken or the dates they were taken. Having all the photos in your computer organized on Adobe Lightroom makes everything much easier to find and its really helpful!

What do you dislike?

I dislike that Adobe Lightroom Classic is mostly advertised as an editing software but it's really not the best for that. I personally think Photoshop will always remain a better alternative for editing photos and don't see myself using Adobe Lightroom Classic much for editing photos going forth in the future.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While Adobe Lightroom Classic is advertised as an editing software, I'd rather use it for photo organization more than anything else as I think there are far better photo editing alternatives. However, I would reccomend for others to try this out and see if they think it will be useful for their organization. The free trial is a good time to check that out.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A business problem that we solved with Adobe Lightroom Classic was being able to have an effective method of organizing all the photos that our organization has. Adobe Lightroom Classic was very beneficial because it's somewhat cheap and now we have a organized library of all of our photos.

"Good for Photo Management - That's About It"

What do you like best?

As a nonprofit organization, we hold many events throughout the year, usually for fundraising. As a result, we have thousands of photos. I liked how easy it was to manage all of our photos with Adobe Lightroom. We were able to clear out our folders and create organized folders on Adobe Lightroom Classic based on the event in which they were taken. This helped us stay really organized.

What do you dislike?

Adobe Lightroom Classic is often marketed as an alternative to Adobe Photoshop. However, I did not find Adobe Lightroom Classic to be that useful for editing and think it's just much better for storing and organizing photos than for anything else.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While I would stick to Photoshop for editing photos, I would nevertheless highly reccomend Lightroom if you or your organization is looking for a platform to store photos so that they stay organized and easy to find.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that we are solving with Adobe Lightroom Classic is having a much better solution to the way that we organize our photo files from events. This is crucial as we often need photos for creating marketing content or to post on social media.

"A Great Supplement When Using Photoshop!"

What do you like best?

I think that Adobe Lightroom Classic is a great addition to have for your editing needs. It supplements Adobe Photoshop very well as this can be used for putting last touches, such as filters, as well as for photo management. Since our organization hosts a lot of events, organizing and storing photos has always been an issue. With Adobe Lightroom Classic, I am able to easily organize photos based on the event in which they were taken.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is that there's a lot less you can do on Adobe Lightroom Classic than you can on Adobe Photoshop. This is due to the fact that on Photoshop, you can do things like editing out pimples or extra things in the photo. However, Lightroom Classic is much more for basic editing to improve composition as well as for organizing photos.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think Adobe Lightroom Classic is definitely headed in the right direction and meets requirements and is easy to use. I would highly reccomend to other organizations to give this a try as I'm sure the benefits of using Adobe Lightroom Classic will be very good. I absolutely love using this after using Adobe Photoshop!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A business problem that we solved with Adobe Lightroom Classic was being able to find a proper solution to our issue of not being able to properly store and manage photos from events that we hosted. With Adobe Photoshop, we were able to do such and it was great! This is very beneficial because now I can easily identify photos because of how organized everything is.

"Lightroom Classic Better Than New Version"

What do you like best?

Lightroom classic has the options and ability to customize better than the newer version. What I like best is that this one does not force you to back up online, or store online. It's quick, and easy once open.

I also like how quickly you can get through editing- batch editing is a breeze. Matching other photos to the tone of one of the others is great. Overall, this is one of the best editing products I have in my workflow. I would reccomend this without any reservations.

What do you dislike?

It seems to take a very long time to open. That should be one of the most basic things to fix. I have reached out to Adobe about this and the naswers they give are the worst. The last one was to reinstall the product. Still, that didn't help at all.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

The only recommendation would be that you should be prepared to wait. When loading Lightroom it can take some time. Across all computers I have used this product on, it is painfully slow to load. Once it's loaded, it moves much quicker.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I'm able to edit on the go- Lightroom Classic does not require an internet connection, so when I am in the field, shooting photos, I have a very quick turnaround time.
