    Do I need Lightroom?

    kg_himself

      So I am in no way a photographer. I am primarily a graphic designer and video editor. I use Photoshop and premier.

       

      But I did invest in a cannon hd camera and will occasionally be taking photos. I will want to do basic touch ups?

       

      For my general purposes which won't be too advanced, can I use photo shop for this?

       

      Or should 'I use lightroom?

       

      I am sure lightroom is a great photo editing program, but I just want to know if it would be overboard for my uses.

       

      Thank you!

          From your wording "For my general purposes which won't be too advanced", I would first see if the software you already own meets your needs. If it does, then you don't have to buy or learn new software. If not, try Lightroom's 30-day free trial.
