Introduction to Lightroom Classic Workshop
Used by more amateur and professional photographers than any other digital editing software, Adobe Lightroom Classic is the essential tool for organizing, editing, and sharing your photography. Designed by the creators of Photoshop, Lightroom Classic offers a rich set of tools for keeping track of your photos. Its editing tools are intuitive and powerful and its edits are non-destructive, which means you can experiment fearlessly, and then revert to your original with just one click.
