Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Sep 11, 2014

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for Mac is a truly unique photography application with an amazing list of abilities and excellent design. Powered by the reputable Adobe company and now updated to support the most modern of camera types, this program will exceed the expectations of all photographers.

Pros

Large, effective toolkit: Photos and videos can be completely controlled with Lightroom's vast amount of editing options like Lens Correction and Tone Control. You are sure to enjoy the publication tools provided by this program that make creating books and websites a much easier procedure.

Fast processing: We noted that Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for Mac excelled when it came to performance, easily correcting our images and loading content without slowness or errors. The entire workflow is smooth and organized.

Social aspect: Perfectly integrated with social networks and image hosting sites, Lightroom gives you instant access to sources like Facebook and Flickr, so you can share your finished products with clients and friends. We enjoyed that the online add-on store offers a range of user-created content to assist you with your work, offering you access to more personalized presets.

Cons

Missing features: Adobe Lightroom is a masterpiece in many regards, but there are a few basic tools that are missing from this program, most notably a face tagging feature, which even many free services offer.

Bottom Line

Few programs can match the power and aptitude of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, and adding the few basic but needed features missing from this program will solidify its dominance. Anyone interested in this program's abilities, regardless of familiarity with photo editing software, should download the free trial of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for Mac.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom for Mac 5.0.

Developer's Description

Adobe Lightroom is the efficient new way for professional photographers to import, select, develop, and showcase large volumes of digital images. So you can spend less time sorting and refining photographs, and more time actually shooting them. Its clean, elegant interface literally steps out of the way and lets you quickly view and work with the images you shot today, as well as the thousands of images that you will shoot over the course of your career. Because no two photographers work alike, Adobe Lightroom adapts to your workflow, not the other way around.
