Lightroom is extremely useful for organizing your photos and for post processing. With each new version of Lightroom that has been released more and more of your editing and processing can be done directly in Lightroom without needing to even open Photoshop. Another nice thing about Lightroom is that the learning curve is not as steep as Photoshop’s learning curve.

With each new version of Lightroom that is released Adobe makes it possible to do more of your photo editing without needing to open Photoshop.
Photography gear can get quite expensive. Even if you have a large budget there are so many different items that you’ll always have to decide what is a priority and what is not.
