Photographers have decided to move from Photoshop to Lightroom since they want to save time and effort in editing images. Not that they are tired of editing it manually, but they want to use the rest of their time in capturing new images and relax at the same time. Moreover, instead of editing images one by one, they want to create free presets that can be used to one or more images.
