Lightroom as a front end to PS CS5
I'm reluctant to play the upgrade game with Adobe on PS and wonder if Lightroom would play nicely with older versions of PS?
The price of upgrading LR to keep abreast of new cameras is a lot less of a burden than PS CSx to get at ACR.
The pixel surgery capacity in CS5 is enough for my needs when I need it.
I also ask the question because the future if Nikon's RAW converter NX2 is veiled in fog since Nik software was taken over by Google .
