The intuitive environment and controls of Lightroom are easy to master and let you quickly and smoothly accomplish your essential photography tasks.

One-click adjustments for multiple images
Save time when processing photographs that were shot under consistent conditions by applying the same Develop settings to all the images in a group at once using presets or the sync feature.

Save time by instantly applying favorite looks to images. When you've perfected a look that you particularly like for an image—a high-contrast black-and-white effect or a super saturated color look, for example—you simply save the settings as a preset and apply it to your other photographs at any time. Many presets are included with Lightroom, and thousands more are available from the thriving worldwide community of Lightroom photographers and experts.
Easy-to-share slide show videos with music
Show your images to clients, friends, or family with more style and flair using elegant slide shows with music. Slide shows are a breeze to create, and you can share them easily by exporting them as videos, even in high definition.

Tight Photoshop integration
Select one or multiple photos and then automatically open them in Adobe Photoshop for detailed, pixel-level editing or to merge multiple photos into a panorama, a high dynamic range photo, or a multilayered file. After making your edits in Photoshop, see the results immediately back in Lightroom.
