Craft incredible images every day, everywhere. Here's how to get started.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is now Adobe Lightroom Classic CC, with the same functionality and features. If you're looking for the all-new photography service, check out Lightroom CC.


Import photos from your computer

To work with your photos in Lightroom Classic CC, you need to let Lightroom Classic CC know where they are on your computer. You do this by importing your photos. After you import you'll see your photos stored in the Library module.

Perfect your photos

Make basic adjustments to your entire photo to fix color and tone. After you make a change, you can always go back and rework your photo or get back to your original.

Enhance isolated areas of a photo

After you have made changes to the entire photo, work on part of a photo to perfect it. You can brush over areas that need to be lightened, darkened, need more sharpening, or several other options.
