I opened Adobe Lightroom for the first time ten years ago. It was when I bought my first DSLR, the Nikon D90, and I was looking for a powerful software to sort and edit all my photos.
I haven’t looked back since, not necessarily because I believe Lightroom is the absolute best, but because I got so accustomed to it that I wasn’t interested in trying anything else. In a way, this is the best compliment one can give a product. And working with other Adobe software applications such as Photoshop and Premiere has certainly helped me keep faith in the company for as long as I have.
Over the last couple of years though, I’ve realised that the competition has intensified: there is now more choice than ever. While excellent alternatives such as Aperture have disappeared, others have emerged along with many powerful features.
