Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 has won the PC Advisor Awards 2011 award for Best Photo or Video Software.

There are some great free photo-editing tools around but, for serious photographers, it’s not so much obliterating red-eye and getting rid of accidental in-shot inclusions that’s important. Photoshop Lightroom 3.0 adds increased support for RAW files and is adept at making the most of advanced camera features, such as high dynamic range.

Runners up in the Best Photo or Video Software category are Adobe Photoshop Elements 9, Corel VideoStudio Pro X3, Serif PhotoPlus X4, Xara Photo and Graphic Designer 6.
