How does Lightroom 4 differ from Adobe Photoshop?
Lightroom includes all the tools you need for most digital photography tasks in one intuitive solution. Lightroom helps photographers work faster and more efficiently with one image, a set of images, or a large image library. Adobe Photoshop software is the industry standard in digital image editing, with advanced tools used by photographers, graphic designers, and other graphics professionals when they need complete control to perform detailed, pixel-level editing and to work with multilayered files.
Unlike Photoshop, image editing in Lightroom is completely nondestructive. Image adjustments and touch-ups are visible on-screen, but the underlying image data remains unchanged and can always be reverted back to its original state. Another notable difference between Lightroom and Photoshop is the task-oriented workflow. Lightroom is a tool with a specific purpose, and its UI, which is composed of a series of modules, was designed to lead you through a process.
How does Lightroom 4 differ from Adobe Bridge?
Adobe Bridge is designed to work with a wide variety of graphic, image, and video file types and to manage files in varied workflows involving all the component applications in Adobe Creative Suite® software. Lightroom and its file management functions are tailored specifically for the digital photography workflow. Lightroom combines all your photography tools, including image editing, in one intuitive application. Lightroom uses a catalog structure, which speeds up searches and enables Lightroom to store information about images and display them on offline media. Adobe Bridge cannot display offline images.
