Printing Directly From Lightroom
May 10, 2012

Just purchased an R3000 with intention of eventually producing some presentation prints. Got the machine up and running and just printed off a curiosity print to check the look. I did it from the Print module of Lightroom 4 and it didn't look half-bad for a first try.

My questions: Is anyone printing on a regular basis from Lightroom? Is this an acceptable practice? Or should LR only be used as a converter with the final print prep done in Photoshop?

I'd appreciate any and all opinions. I know I have a steep learning curve in front of me wrt calibrating & profiles & shadow/highlight detail, but I was curious about the viability of LR's Print module.
