Your best shots. Made even better.

Your photos don’t always reflect the scene the way you remember it. But with Lightroom Classic, you have all the desktop editing tools you need to bring out the best in your photographs. Punch up colors, make dull-looking shots vibrant, remove distracting objects, and straighten skewed shots. Plus, the latest release offers improved performance so you can work faster than ever.

Enhancements to Lightroom on the web

With better performance under the hood, Lightroom Classic lets you import photos, generate previews, and move from Library to Develop Module in record time.

Boundary Wrap

Use range masking tools to easily select the areas or objects you want to edit based on their color, luminance, or depth.

HDR Merge

Create HDR panos faster now that you can merge multiple bracketed exposures into multiple HDR photos and then stitch them into a panorama — all in one step.
