Lightroom combines photos into "collections" - virtual gatherings of files that can quickly search.
It stores information about keywords, previews and metadata not in each graphic file, but in a centralized database (the SQLite engine).
Therefore, the database can be accessed and about the photos, which are now in the archive on DVD. The size of the program is much smaller than Bridge, it runs faster and takes less RAM.
In general, Lightroom is designed exclusively for photographers who are interested in processing and cataloging photos, rather than integrating everything and everything.
Another feature of the package Photoshop Lightroom - the separation of the process of working with pictures into separate stages.
Each of them has its own functional module with a corresponding set of tools and palettes of settings.
