Another feature is the web collaboration. This will allow you to sync your Lightroom Collection to the cloud and forward the link to your colleague or client for review. All you need is a browser to open the link. From there, you can rate the images or label it as approved or reject. You can also add comments to every single photo.

All these inputs will be synced to your desktop including the comments. The nice thing about this feature is you don’t have to email the photos for selection and summarize the comments so you can apply it to your work in Lightroom. All the collaboration is integrated in Lightroom so there is no need to export files or go in and out of the application.

The trend is towards the cloud and Lightroom is opening new doors to benefit photographers. However, since these are cloud services, you need to have a subscription, which comes free when purchasing one or two Adobe CC applications. The Photographer’s package includes both Lightroom and Photoshop for a little over P500 only per month.

You not only get legit applications but are updated on the latest features and bug fixes. Adobe has introduced many new features to their application and you can only get it through the free updates when you subscribe.

The ability to erase certain parts of the mask from radial and linear local adjustment tools is just one of the breakthroughs in Lightroom CC. Increasing the capabilities of Lightroom reduces your time spent in Photoshop. This helps streamline your workflow.

There are some amazing updates in Photoshop CC as well that will just leave you in awe. Invest in Creative Cloud and keep on shooting, everyone! /
