Editors' Review

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a powerful and versatile program for editing and enhancing your photos, as well as compiling them into a slideshow. With an intuitive interface and plenty of built-in tips along the way, this program makes advanced editing features available to all experience levels.

Pros

Nice interface: This app provides you with a large viewing area, which is nice when you're working to perfect an image. But that doesn't mean you have to sacrifice accessibility of the tools you use the most. Instead, these are nicely arrayed to the left and right of the viewing area, and collapsable menus keep everything within easy reach.

Direct uploads: In addition to photo editing and slideshow creation, this program also enables you to create HTML or Flash Galleries. When they're done, these can be directly uploaded to your website straight from the app.

Photo books: Another nice feature is the option to order physical photo books through the app. You can choose to have these printed by Blurb, or you can format them to export as a PDF and then print them yourself.

Cons

Text color: Some of the text in this program can be hard to read at times because of the lack of contrast with the black background that dominates the interface. This is especially true of the Tips, which are very helpful but are printed in gray in a black pop-up window.

Bottom Line

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a good option for novices as well as veterans. It offers a comprehensive list of features in an intuitive and attractive package, and it has some nice add-ons as well. You can try this app for free for 30 days, although you do have to create a free account with Adobe to do so. If you'd like to purchase a full license, it costs $178.77.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.4.
