What Does LR Stand For In Photography?

LR is an abbreviation for Adobe Lightroom, a powerful image organization and editing software.  You may also see it referred to as LR5, LR6 and so on, depending on which version of the software they are using.

Lightroom allows you to import and organize your images, then process them with Adobe’s Camera Raw Engine from Photoshop, and export the files to galleries or custom printed books.  It’s available as a standalone piece of software, or as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud photography package for about $10/month including Photoshop CC as well.

If you haven’t used Lightroom before, it’s hard to underline just how powerful a piece of software it is!  It’s the backbone to my workflow and image editing.
