  1. Most of the tools available in Lightroom derive from traditional, darkroom methods of image production. It's software for photographers, not manipulators! If you can crack these simple but effective functions, you will be able to produce files for any output on any medium whilst maintaining maximum quality and detail. These are the things that (I think) make a photographer stand out. I feel Lightroom is the best tool for working on batches of images due to it's fluid workspace and overall compactness.

  2. It's also soooo important to be organised when dealing with large numbers of photographs; that is why key-wording is crucial, along with the ability to backup and maintain a library of images as efficiently as possible.
