Summary: This is my first introduction to Lightroom and Photo manipulation software. I have watched several Youtube and Adobe videos to learn how it works. It is great and really enhances the photos but many hours have been spent with tutorials.
Summary: The main two upgraded features which I will use from the version 5.0 upgrade are 1) The ability to offset the vignetting and 2) The improved spot correction tool. While there are some other small features these two are the main reason I purchased the upgrade.
