Excerpt: I couldn't possibly obtain the same results and ease of workflow with any other editing software. For the price, LR5 is the best. Period. This of course is assuming you know the differences between LR and PS. For cropping, coloration, small mark removal, hi/lowlights alterations, and the like, LR is king.
Pros: Accurate Colors and Controls, Easy To Collaborate Across Programs, Easy To Customize, Easy To Navigate, Versatile
Excerpt: The program works well and is not to complicated. Pictures can be catalogued and later quickly found, altered, emailed, etc. Lastly, the price is reasonable and it should meet most photographers needs.

Excerpt: I've wanted Lightroom for the longest time and I finally bought it a month ago because I will be taking pics of my kids for Christmas cards, I've been playing with it since I downloaded it and it takes my photos to a whole new level. I wish I had bought it a long time ago. B&H Photo had the best price out there and their customer service is tip top. I received my second email with the product key and download instructions within 15 minutes of ordering it!
