Get your photographs imported into the right place/catalog

This would be extremely easy for you to classify pictures and put them in one specific location on your computer.

Edit it right

After you import all the images into a catalog, you can now edit it thanks to the numerous multi-tasking abilities that Lightroom carries. The tool helps you manage your photos and also makes them look better aesthetically. Some of the options (found on the right hand side of your screen) include histogram, keywording, keyword list, metadata, comments, quick develop etc. The histogram would show us the number of pixels that are present in the image at each colour intensity level. Keywording and keyword list help you add tags that give out valuable information about your photo.

You can categorise the photos better with simple options like 'photos to delete', 'photos to modify' and so on – making managing your photos the easiest task.
