Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 brings out the best in your photographs, whether you're perfecting one image, searching for ten, processing hundreds or organising thousands. Lightroom does everything from simple one click adjustments to advanced modifications with cutting-edge advanced controls. It easily manages all your images and helps to showcase your work in elegant print layouts, slide shows and web galleries, as well as on popular photo-sharing sites. Lightroom 5 introduces an advanced healing brush to remove unwanted distractions, a new radial gradient tool, an upright tool to correctly align images and much more.
New in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5
Advanced Healing Brush
Don't let dust spots, splotches, or other distractions and flaws get in the way of a great shot. With the Advanced Healing Brush in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, you can not only change the brush size but also move it in precise paths. Unwanted scene elements - even those with irregular shapes such as threads - just disappear.
Straighten tilted images with a single click. The new Upright tool analyses images and detects skewed horizontal and vertical lines, even straightening shots where the horizon is hidden.
Emphasise important parts of your image with more flexibility and control. The Radial Gradient tool lets you create off-center vignette effects, or multiple vignetted areas within a single image.
Easily work with images without bringing your entire library with you. Just generate smaller stand-in files of your full-size images. Any adjustments or metadata additions you make to these files will automatically be applied to the originals.
Video slide shows
Easily share your work in elegant video slide shows. Combine still images, video clips, and music in creative HD videos that can be viewed on almost any computer or device.

Take advantage of a powerful set of image management features to organise your photographs, flexibly rate and label them, and find them easily using a wide range of metadata tags and information.
Save time by instantly applying favourite looks to images. When you've perfected a look that you particularly like for an image - a high-contrast black-and-white effect or a supersaturated color look, for example - you simply save the settings as a preset and apply it to your other photographs at any time. Many presets are included with Lightroom, and thousands more are available from the thriving worldwide community of Lightroom photographers and experts.
Tight Photoshop integration
Select one or multiple photos and then automatically open them in Adobe Photoshop software to perform detailed, pixel-level editing or to merge multiple photos into a panorama, a high dynamic range photo, or a creative composite. After making your edits in Photoshop, see the results immediately back in Lightroom.
One-click adjustments for multiple images
Save time when processing images by applying the same Develop settings to all the photographs in a group at once using presets or the sync feature. For example, correct the exposure from an entire shoot or convert all of the images to black-and-white.
Fast performance across platforms
Speed up day-to-day imaging tasks and process your images faster by taking advantage of cross-platform 64-bit support. Use the advanced memory handling capabilities of the latest Mac OS and Windows operating systems.
