Lightroom 5

2013 Accessory of the Year

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5: £102

With Photoshop this year becoming subscription only, it has left a number of photographers looking for an alternative and with Lightroom 5, you've got an incredibly powerful program at your fingertips that doesn't have to break the bank.

While it doesn't quite offer the same image-manipulation controls as Photoshop, for those looking to adjust Raw images and manage a stack of images, there's no better all-in-one editing package out there.

Broken down into modules, the main point of interest for most photographers is the Develop module that offers powerful and advanced control over Raw files, with a range of controls, presets and localised adjustments. Once you start using it, you'll wonder how you ever got on without it. It's a must-have for any serious photographers.
