lightroom 5 & elements 9
Sep 3, 2013

I do 99% of my PP with lightroom 5 but even with the upgrade to the spot removal tool, I still prefer the healing brush of elements (I have version 9).  This is the ONLY reason I use elements, hence I have not upgraded it.

The only problem is that you have to convert to 8 bit to use elements.  I don't notice any difference in the final picture. Does anyone know if elements 11 still requires you to convert to 8 bit?

Also does anyone know of any tips on how to improve the spot removal tool in lightroom to get as good functionality as in elements (to save me exporting between programs)?

Cheers.
