Product details

Experience amazing photo editing techniques and image optimisation with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 - making your images look even better and giving you new ways to present your creations.

Complete photo package

This incredible photo editing software gives you a comprehensive set of digital photography tools, from simple one-click adjustments to dynamic, cutting-edge advanced commands and controls.

Now you'll be able to create images with additional depth and resonance.

Extra enhancement

Lightroom 5
is especially suited to highlight and shadow recovery, so you can bring out all the detail that your camera captures in dark shadows and bright highlights if you've over- or under-exposed a shot, or if you want to achieve more creative contrast effects.

Since you'll have the power of Photoshop at your fingertips, shooting in challenging lighting conditions won't pose as much of a problem as this incredible software enables you to circumvent a variety of exposure-related situations.

Flawless features

Photoshop Lightroom 5
from Adobe presents an incredible range of editing tools to work magic on your pictures and enhance them in ways you've only dreamed of.

State-of-the-art image processing controls let you get the most from your image, whether you make accurate general adjustments or focus on specific areas.

Since it's a non-destructive environment you can really get creative and experimental with your image editing. Your original image files won't be altered, and if you make a mistake it's simple to retrace your steps and achieve perfection.

The flexible editing brushes permit area-specific adjustments for whatever effect you want, and there are further indispensable features such as the dynamic intelligent sharpening tool, a one-click dust removal tool and a facility to quickly fix red eye in flash images.

If you want to give your photos a classier feel, use the advanced black-and-white conversion to powerfully manipulate image tones across 8 precision mixing channels.

Lightroom 5 also packs advanced colour editing muscle, so you can get rid of colour casts by adjusting over 8 colour channels each for hue, saturation and luminance.

Get rid of noise and create amazing, naturalistic results from photos shot at high ISO speeds using the cutting-edge noise reduction technology. This can be applied globally or locally.

Use the white balance brush to create more consistent colour in shots affected by varied or mixed light sources, for the whole image or in specific areas.

You can even use the new edition of Photoshop Lightroom to automatically reduce lens defects like chromatic aberration, geometric distortion and vignetting with just a few clicks, or use perspective correction to get rid of bent lines due to camera angle and lens effects.

New features


A new advanced healing brush allows you to take away dust spots, splotches and other unwanted scene flaws from your image; it will take a lot to ruin a great shot.

You can now straighten tilted images with a simple click thanks to the new Upright tool. This is done by analysing the horizontal and vertical lines, leaving you with a perfect straight image.

A Radial Gradient tool gives you more flexibility and control when emphasizing image elements. Create off-centre vignette effects or multiple vignetted areas within a single image.

Smart Previews enables you to generate smaller stand-in files of your full-size images, with adjustments automatically applied.

Furthermore, a video slide show makes a great way to share your work and an improved photo book creation lets you create an attractive and easy-to-use portfolio.

Present those images


The photo book creation facility in Adobe Lightroom 5 lets you build beautiful books of your photographs and images with a range of easily-applied templates included in the software.

Once you've created your presentation, upload it for quality printing with just a few clicks. The software also enables far more effective management of all your images.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 gives the image enthusiast the tools, ability and knowledge to create spectacular images.
