Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is a digital darkroom that will organise your photos, polish them to perfection with some exceptional editing tools, then help you share your favourites with the world.
New v5 features include a one-click perspective correction tool, while an enhanced healing brush allows you to heal or clone with brush strokes.
A new radial filter allows you to apply your preferred Lightroom image adjustments to a circular mask, which can then be resized or feathered to produce a more natural effect.
A Smart Preview option helps you work remotely from your original images. Lightroom 5 can create smaller versions of these files, called Smart Previews; if you're disconnected from the source images then you can work on the Smart Previews, instead; and when you reconnect, the program can reapply all your edits to the original pictures.
Elsewhere, more capable photo book creation includes book templates which you can customise to suit your needs.
And it's now possible to combine video clips, images and music to produce your very own HD video slideshow.
