Program information

Program name: Adobe Lightroom Classic (Imaging)

Adobe Lightroom is a image organization and manipulation software that allows viewing, organizing and editing large number of digital images. However it isn't a file manager like Adobe Bridge and it cannot operate on files unless they're imported first.
