I was at Best Buy. You know the place where the sales people are not on commission. I was looking for some parts and the sales guy was explaining Lightroom to the “soon to be customer”. I claim, BTW it’s a self-claim, being a “Lightroom Expert” but there are days when I shouldn’t. There was so much B.S that came out from the sales guy that I decided to clarify a few points…
- Lightroom doesn’t keep your photos.
- Lightroom doesn’t store your photos.
- Lightroom stores information about your photos.
- The rating, color, title, keywords… are attached to the photo only, so they are displayed for all the collections.
- Lightroom never matches the output of the camera as seen on the LCD at the back of your camera. You can apply presets and various processing to closely match it.
- Lightroom doesn’t edit your photos.
Lightroom keeps track of each change you want to do to your photos and apply them at the output. The output can either be:
- The screen
- The web
- The printer
- The exported TIFF or JPEG
