    If you mean Photoshop as a standalone program, I'd have to disagree. Photoshop offers nowhere near the level of workflow efficiency that Lightroom does. If you mean the Photoshop package (ie Photoshop & Lightroom cc) then my point was that this could prove a serious contender in a market that has been largely monopolised by Adobe for some time. I think it is an exciting prospect.

    In case you're hoping to begin shooting RAW pictures and wind up exceeding iPhoto or Picasa, you're going to require an approach to process RAW documents. What's more, in case you're shooting a considerable measure of pictures, you'll require an approach to oversee them so you can discover what you need when you need it.


    Lightroom is currently the most mainstream application for doing these capacities, however it's not alone. Here's an once-over of the Lightroom choices.


    At some time I've utilized large portions of these, and additionally now-dead choices like Rawshooter (which was incorporated into Lightroom) and Bibble (which got to be Corel AfterShot Pro). I now utilize Lightroom. I like it and discover it addresses my issues exceptionally well, yet each of the options offers its own advantages.


    What's more, there may be reasons that Lightroom doesn't address your issues. Perhaps it's excessively costly. Possibly you simply don't care for the possibility of membership based programming. Possibly you're after a particular element or similarity that Lightroom doesn't offer. On the other hand possibly the Lightroom work process simply sometimes falls short for the way you need to work. On the off chance that you find that Lightroom truly doesn't work for you for reasons unknown, here are a few choices worth a look.

    Lightroom is good for storage and file keeping. It also works for general rough touchups. I have Lightroom but just never use it. If a new program comes along to replace Photoshop it better be good and very intuitive.
