To get the most from Photoshop, a user has to remember where specific tools and commands are located. Lightroom is different. It’s as if someone went to Photoshop’s giant toolbox and picked out only the tools a photographer uses the most. The rest of the esoteric tools are left in the Photoshop toolbox where they’re saved for special projects. What’s even better is that once all of the photographer’s tools are gathered together in Lightroom, they’re laid out in groups on the workbench in the order in which they are most often used.

The correct exposure moves the rest of the image’s tonal levels to the right, so that each gets twice as much information dedicated to describing it, as shown in the second diagram. Stops of Exposure 6 5 4 3 Stops of Exposure 2 1 6 5 4 3 2 1024 1024 512 512 256 256 64 128 1 2048 2048 64 128 I know this flies in the face of conventional wisdom for a JPEG shooter.

When I point my digital SLR camera at a scene and click the shutter, the camera’s chip captures a huge amount of information. If I have the camera set to capture JPEG files, the camera’s onboard processor processes all that information into a JPEG file. The processor looks at all the settings I have dialed into my camera — sharpness, white balance, color space, contrast, and so on. Then it applies all these settings and creates the JPEG file from a small sliver of the data that the chip recorded.
