  • Pros: Still non-cloud version; Smart Preview mode lets you easily bring your work on the road
  • Cons: Needs optimization for more modern hardware.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 – Review

MyMac
9 August 2013
  • Excerpt: My earliest copy of Photoshop (version 3) was bundled with a SCSI scanner purchased many years ago. During the ensuing years I have had many versions of Photoshop and almost as many image archiving schemes. Most recently I have been using iPhoto for casual family snapshots and a file and folder based strategy for my commercial and fine art images. I have been using Adobe Bridge to access these images.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3.5 From an Aperture User

MyMac
30 June 2013
  • Excerpt: 3.5 is the result of that investigation. To compare both applications in depth would take much more than a few pages, as you will read below. But at the end, my hope is that you will find some help when considering jumping to professional image management software.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5

MacWorld
21 August 2013
  • Excerpt: If you like Lightroom 4, you’re probably going to appreciate version 5 even more. The latest iteration of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom introduces a new set of well-thought out features while maintaining snappy performance. Our stock MacBook Pro 15-inch Retina Display laptop had no trouble importing large raw files, scrolling through hundreds of thumbnails or applying sophisticated image edits. In other words, Adobe kept its house in order during this refresh.
  • Pros: Practical, finely crafted version; well-priced for serious photographers
  • Cons: Can’t print a photo book, make a roundtrip to Photoshop or apply noise reduction with Smart Previews.

Lightroom 5 makes it easier to disconnect

CNET
10 June 2013
  • Summary: A nice, but not necessarily must-have update, Adobe Lightroom 5 remains a strong program for working with raw images.
  • Pros: Adobe's latest version of Photoshop Lightroom handles offline images a lot more gracefully than previous iterations and adds some tools that streamline local retouching.
  • Cons: Still lacks features that some users might miss, including face detection (and related efficiencies), HDR and panorama tools and beyond-basic video support.
