Since Apple has discontinued Aperture, offering a highly controversial Photos. App instead, I was happy that there is the Lightroom alternative. The recent software update to sixth version convinced me of this again. Lightroom 6 is not a revolution. For many years now, this software development is rather evolutionary, because the app does its main task very well. However, some rather useful features were added recently. The most important change of Lightroom 6 is that the app has learned to use a discrete graphics card, which led to the great speed increase. The next important feature is the ability to automatically detect the faces. When you first start Lightroom CC the program asks whether to include this feature, and if you enable it, the program begins to scan your library. My twenty thousand photos have been processed somewhere for five hours. Lightroom finds people on the photos and asks you to name them. Due to this you can quickly find people in your library. It is nice that the number of false positives is small. Lightroom 6 also offers HDR feature and panoramas stitching. Both functions are quite simple: you need to choose which photos you want to merge, then select the desired menu item. Lightroom will show a window with the basic settings and after a few seconds you will receive the result. You can save the picture in DNG format. It is also worth mentioning that the slideshow in Lightroom 6 can include photos (with different panning effects), video, and music. And the module for web galleries creating can handle HTML 5.
According to statistics, most users do not use even the half of feature-rich programs' capabilities. One of the reasons — is that people just don't know about this or that feature or can't find it in the interface. The Photoshop Elements users may refer to Guided Edit image editing mode. It provides access to frequently used editing functions. In this mode, all tools are divided by the tasks. There are color correction, lighting and exposure, basic editing and other categories. When the user chooses a tool, its settings open directly on the Guided Edit panel. Photoshop Elements supports the layer masks. The value of the mask layer is difficult to overestimate. The processing of the images using layer masks blurs the line between amateur and professional photography. Using the masks, it is possible to do the restoration of damaged photographs, to get the endless possibilities of photo collages creation, to retouch and so on. Adobe Photoshop Elements includes the Organizer module. It helps to synchronize files between multiple PCs, to add smart tags to photos (for example, marks not clear photos or with contrast lack) and to recognize the people's faces on the images. You can use these tags to filter images. For example, it is easy to quickly find all the good pictures with your grandma. One of the features that is available from the Organizer window is direct upload of photos and videos on the Facebook. After selecting the appropriate option you will need to login with Facebook and allow to perform the actions through Adobe applications. After successful authorization Photoshop Elements will remember your login. You will only need to choose the files you want to upload, specify the albums for the photos uploading, as well as to decide the visibility status of files – for friends, for friends of my friends or for the everyone.
