Photoshop Lightroom 3 review

digitalslrphoto.com
15 August 2011
  • Conclusion: At around £200, Lightroom 3 is not exactly a cheap proposition for enthusiast photographers. That said you do get an awful lot for your money – taking into account the image organisation tools of the Library module as well as all the Raw adjustment controls from Photoshop CS5 (which costs a whooping £650) in the Develop module.

  • Excerpt: Adobe’s stand-alone raw app gives you all the granular photo-hacking horsepower of ACR, plus even more sophisticated photographic adjustments tools and a powerful database tool for managing your collection. And like any good raw app, Lightroom is a nondestructive editor, saving changes to metadata settings, rather than changing the pixels themselves, as Photoshop does. If you’re only familiar with image editors like Photoshop, Lightroom takes some adjustment.
  • Pros: Highly granular photo manipulation; great workflow management; superb print control; 64-bit
  • Cons: Limited image manipulation; no layer or compositing support.

[ REVIEW—ADOBE LIGHTROOM ]

DPexpert
7 July 2011
  • Excerpt: This application is, as the name suggests, the electronic equivalent of the darkroom except that it is used in the light. It has been around in free beta form for some months so it is well tested for bugs.
  • Pros: The interface is attractive and intuitive. It is a big improvement on Photoshop RAW and is much better than the crippled RAW converters that come with camera software. It is also faster in operation than any RAW converter we have used, with the exception of the excellent Bibble Pro .
  • Cons: We find Adobe’s curious redefinition of common English words to be misleading. As with all Adobe applications the learning curve is steep.

  • Summary: Lightroom is a sophisticated, intelligent application, and I'd recommend it to professional photographers. I just wish its features were included in other Adobe apps; I'm a little annoyed that it's an extra expense.
  • Pros: Incredible array of searchable metadata elements, huge variety of colour and exposure adjustments, excellent printing features, photo edits are non-destructive
  • Cons: Felt sluggish on a 3.2GHz Pentium 4-based system
