Re: Bridge Alternative - Lightroom
In reply to Bobzilla2, Nov 1, 2012

Lightroom has gone through many improvements. Version 1 was overly complicated and didn't work very well, but Adobe finally got it right with Version 3, and it is now on Version 4.

For routine organizing and processing of photos it's great. I now do about 80% of all my photo work with it, only switching to Photoshop CS or Elements when I need to do something complicated (like merging two images or adding text to an image).

For most people, Lightroom plus Elements will do everything they'll ever need (it's what I keep on my laptop), and the combination is half the cost of PhotoShop. Plus, Lightroom is an outstanding tool for organizing photos, even having tools to select shots and automatically upload them to a number of sites (such as Facebook and Smugmug) if you wish.
