Outstanding, with bugs

UrQuan3, B&H Photo
4 November 2014
  • Excerpt: First off, for what Lightroom is meant to do, it is best-in-class. For most development level work, it has capabilities that sometimes exceed Photoshop. It has basic lens and skew correction, great rubber-stamp like abilities, and a built in library for tagging pictures and creating collections. Emphasizing shadows or highlights are a breeze.Finding more advanced tools is difficult, but this was to avoid intimidating the beginner.
  • Pros: Good Value, Versatile
  • Cons: Poorly Designed

Upgraded From 4.6

13 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I upgraded to LightRoom 5 because the RAW Nikon NEF from my newly purchased D5300 would not open in 4.6. After I placed the order I thought, just for fun, I would try opening the D5300 files in my old Photoshop Elements 12. And, they did! So, I'm thinking "what the heck" I bought Elements 12 prior to LightRoom 4. Just another example of corporate stupidity or greed. I suspect a bit of both.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls
  • Cons: Difficult To Navigate

one computer only

23 July 2014
  • Excerpt: I like LightRoom but not this upgrade. I was able to download Lightroom 4 to my office and home computers but only could up grade to one of them so now I will have to buy another one for when I am working at home, no savings I only needed it to get my Nikon DF raw files to work. I huge price to pay just to edit raw files at home too.
  • Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy To Customize, Easy To Navigate, Versatile

Minor Upgrade

L and L, B&H Photo
9 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This is a minor upgrade to Lightroom 4. I did not find any new features that make this a great product. If I could do it again I would not spend the money. That being said, Lightroom has always been a great product that allows me to import, organize, edit, and export my images quickly. It is very easy to use and can really improve you photos. I strongly recommend Lightroom I would not recommend this upgrade unless you have a specific reason to purchase the upgrade.

Great Photo editing tool

bluesky67, B&H Photo
3 March 2014
  • Excerpt: LightRoom is feature packed but far from perfect. The 5.3 download was made available on servers that did not support well advanced download tools that use segmented downloads. This issue has been isolated to Adobe servers and reported to the dev team. The second problem I had was that Picasa edited files were not rendered correctly. This issue has been again traced to the LightRoom 5.0 & 5.3 and reported to Adobe.
  • Pros: Fast, Powerful
  • Cons: Compatibility Issues, Hard To Install or Upgrade

Not quite content-aware

  • Excerpt: I wish it had Adobe Photoshop CS5/6's content aware!!! Instead, it has advanced spot heal which works easier than regular spot heal (pretty much like clone).

Needs a CD tutorial for Up Grade

Photo eye, B&H Photo
20 November 2013
  • Excerpt: I had to call Adobe to get clarification as to the Up Grade, I was looking for siders to made corrections in Develop and found out the up grade did not add these silders ot version 4. I feel for the price of the up grade they should include a instructional CD to help the user.
  • Cons: Needs More User Info

Good to Learn the Basics

Brad, B&H Photo
14 October 2013
  • Excerpt: I shoot all my photography in raw mode and Lightroom is one of the best software products to manage and manipulate images. This book provides good instruction on the features of Lightroom and offers hands-on practice to learn the resources of the software. It contains sample photos that can be downloaded so that instructions can be practiced and compared against known outcomes. I have found this to be the most valuable attribute of the Classroom in a Book media series.
  • Pros: Broad Coverage Of Feature, Broad Feature Coverage, Easy to read, Hands-on Practice, Step By Step Approach
  • Cons: Heavily Process Based, Shallow Descriptions
