The most common is Lightroom, which is also popular with people who edit pictures, and some commercial photographers as well. It is a free program that lets you edit images directly on a PC, using the Adobe software, or if you can’t use the Creative Cloud app, then you can use Photoshop Express. Lightroom is also very convenient to use when importing images to the digital camera, giving you great control over the look and feel, so you can make changes quickly. On the flip-side, Lightroom can be a bit clunky, with the editing and saving options often becoming inaccessible, so using other programs can be more convenient. If you prefer to use a software like Lightroom for image editing, you can create Photoshop-like previews for each photo, allowing you to quickly choose the best options for the particular pictures you are working on.
A tool for creating and editing JPEGs is Photoshop. The software can produce high-quality photos in almost every size and aspect ratio, so you can shoot a photo that is simply perfect as well as one that can make better use of what is available. Since your photograph is saved in Adobe’s internal library on your computer, there is a lot of opportunity to tweak it and tweak it more, as opposed to having to rely on an external service that only has good images from big companies. Some of the features in Photoshop include a macro lens option, which gives you the option of manually adjusting your exposure and other options. In general, you can make some fairly drastic edits to your photographs using the software—so long as you know what you are doing. However, Photoshop still has some problems—including the fact that it is the most expensive photo editing software out there, and is difficult to maintain if you aren’t using it frequently and to make adjustments in a consistent and timely manner.
Some professional photographers also do a good deal of work on their computer graphics programs, such as Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and InDesign. This will give you an almost completely customized image of the scene on the paper and what is needed for an image to look right. There are also a ton of software options to help out your work. In particular, you can have Adobe Illustrator take your scanned documents and create new graphics (such as watermarks for a photograph) that are perfect for use with other digital camera cameras. It is often possible to combine a photo with other digital photos and produce a new digital photo or video that you can share with the public—even if that means using another program
