Advice - CS5 upgrade or Lightroom 3
Jun 9, 2010

I've been using CS2 for a few years together with Silkypix Pro and also Capture One v4 and have been trialling LR3 b2 over the last couple of months and now the trial of the full LR3 which I like a lot now that the lens correction features are enabled.

I'm just downloading a trial of PS CS5 to see what differences that has over LR3 (and indeed CS2).

My dilemma is that the cost of LR3 is similar to the upgrade cost of CS5 and I'm wondering what there is in LR3 that I cannot do with PS CS5 and the latest version of Bridge, or is it just a work-flow related issue?

I would appreciate anyone's views and feelings regarding my dilemma. I do realise that I can simply buy LR3 and upgrade to CS5, but being a tight-wad and a retired amateur, I would prefer to keep my costs as low as possible!
