    Photoshop Lightroom above other programs?

      What are some of the features that make Photoshop Lightroom one of the better programs to use?

          It's the combination of features - managing, adjusting and outputting your pictures in a single package.

            Which is also possible in the likes of Capture One Pro, of course - and this is why the OP's question is impossible to answer in anything like an meaningfully objective way.

             

            It's not just what Lr does, but how well it does it, that matters. For example, on paper AfterShot Pro ("ASP") does much of what Lr can do, but my God! The image quality of output files (especially where effective highlight recovery or high ISO noise handling are necessary) is orders of magnitude better from Lr than from ASP.

             

            Grumlord, you really need to do what we all did - try them for yourself.
