Excerpt: I have recently transitioned my photography over to a completely digital darkroon. Besides a quality printer the most significant tool is Lightroom. Of the new features the one I'm most excited about is the ability to publish directly to Photoshelter.The Color Checker profile capability works extremely well and the other controls for editing are simple yet powerful.For me personaly, the biggest struggle with Lightroom is the Cataloug method of handling files.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Collaborate Across Programs
Excerpt: I have had LR v5 for about a month. It's a pleasure to use and is capable of quick enhancements which are excellent. I didn't get it for it's database capability, but I can see how it would work well with my "home-made" folders once I get aroud to full utilization.I'm saving the 5th star until I have had more time to explore its capabilities.
Pros: Easy to use, Good Results, Good Value, Great Addition To Pse
Excerpt: Im new to lightroom and still learning how to use many of the great features it offers but so far I'm definitely loving it. I really love how quickly and easily you can enhance your photos. I also love the keywords feature- super helpful for organization and going back to find photos. This is a great product. It will take some time to learn how to fully utilize it but you can also just start organzing and enhancing photos right away.
Excerpt: I have used a couple of other brands of editing tools, moving to Lightroom was a bit of a shock. My main complaint is the program came in a box and that seemed to be that. I got into a bit of a mess when I tried to "wing it". I needed to e-mail some pictures and send others to be printed, a major problem. Since then I have discovered there is lots of excellent help places on line including Adobe!
Excerpt: The interface is less intuitive than Picasa but the program overall is more versatile. Some commands and functions seem redundant. I am happy with the purchase but learning the program is still a work in progress.
