Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 6.1 with size 926 Mb is to combine photos into “collections” – a virtual gathering of files, which can quickly do a search. It stores information about keywords, preview and metadata for each image file, and a centralized database (engine SQLite). Therefore, the database can be accessed at the photos, which are now in the archives on DVD. The size is much smaller than the bridge, it runs faster and uses less memory.
In general, Lightroom is designed exclusively for photographers who are interested in processing and cataloging of photographs, rather than integration of everything. Another feature of the package Photoshop Lightroom – division of work with images in separate stages. For each of them is a functional module with the appropriate set of tools and palettes settings.
Functional capabilities of Lightroom include not only the RAW-converter and image processing, but also a powerful system of catalogs of photos, as well as the tools to create slide shows and web pages. As in many modern RAW-converters, in Lightroom uses the principle of non-destructive editing. This means that information about all users perform operations and settings are stored in the service file, while the original image remains unchanged. This approach allows us not only to minimize the possibility of damage to the original processed images, but also allows you to create and print many different variants of the same image without the need to maintain the appropriate amount of full-length graphic files, quickly eat the free space on the hard disk , After completing work on the snapshot, you can save the processed version in a separate graphic file.
