TOP REASONS TO BUY ADOBE PHOTOSHOP LIGHTROOM 6

Nondestructive environment
Set your creativity free in a nondestructive editing environment that lets you experiment without limits. Your original images are never altered, and it’s easy to reverse your steps or save multiple versions of any photo.

Advanced black-and-white conversion
Gain powerful control over the tonal qualities that make or break black-and-white images. Precisely mix information from eight color channels when you convert to grayscale.

Develop Presets
Save time by instantly applying favorite looks to your images. Just save Develop settings as a preset and apply it to your other photos at any time with one click. Lightroom includes dozens of built-in presets and thousands more are available from third parties.

NEW Facial Recognition
Quickly find images of family and friends, even without metadata tags. You select a face in one photo, and Lightroom searches for that person in all your other images. Categorize and group your photos based on faces.

Advanced Healing Brush
Make your images spotless with a single brush stroke. Adjust the size of the brush and move it in precise paths. Unwanted objects and flaws — even those with irregular shapes like threads — just disappear.

Upright
Straighten tilted images with a single click. Upright analyzes images and detects skewed horizontal and vertical lines, even straightening shots where the horizon is hidden.

NEW HDR Merge
Create natural-looking or surreal images from extremely high-contrast scenes. Using HDR Merge, you can easily combine multiple shots taken with different exposure settings into a single high dynamic range image.
