I have to admit that Adobe Lightroom has become the most amazing and brilliant tool for us, amateur photographers and hobbyist. I can really feel the big difference between Photoshop and Lightroom since I was able to use Photoshop years before Lightroom was introduced.

Photoshop is one of the best photo editing application ever made, but in today’s great demand for photography, we can’t work on manual editing. We need something like Lightroom that can help us finish the editing process in time. Photoshop still contains a lot of features that were not offered by Lightroom. Moreover, you can use both programs if you subscribe to their creative cloud subscription plan. If you haven’t installed the program yet, read more tutorials and guide on how to install presets by sleeklens.


Lightroom provides a lot of features, it includes: creating and using presets to one or more images at once, great copy and paste settings, fast importing and exporting images, organize and manage images in one collection, smart previews, loop and grid views, ability to create slideshows, Lightroom mobile and web versions and more. Moreover, Adobe Lightroom is a non-destructive image editing tool. It preserves the original file setting of the image. So for example, you made changes in an image, yet you cannot undo it, you can always view the original settings in the catalog of Lightroom.

Another great feature of Lightroom is its ability to create Lightroom presets. Presets can be compared to filtered images, however, presets can be applied to one or more images at once. Presets can be downloaded for free or paid if you don’t have an idea on how to create one. But, if you have enough skills to make a collection of presets, you can earn from it by sharing it to the world online. Presets are basically one of the reasons why photographers can save more time in editing their images.
