On Adobe launches Photoshop Lightroom 4.1 Release Candidate 2 news story (32 comments in total)

Lightroom 4.1 RC2 solved some issues but added more.
I find it frustrating to have paid for a product that was not ready for production use.
Over all it has been a very disappointing two months since I got LR4 and I still have now now idea when it will be reliable.

Just an update - 4 weeks ago Adobe released a 4.1 Beta release that was suppose to fix many problems that people were having. Fixed some but many remain. No word from Adobe when a non-beta release will be delivered with problems fixed. Little frustrating to pay for a product and not have it work properly. Reluctant to use it for production work.
Makes me have severe reservations about upgrading to PS CS6 after this experience.

I was really interested in LR4 because of some of the new features in the develop mode. Would have helped my workflow a lot.

In short - I would hold off on buying LR4.
Especially if you use Photoshop CS5 to do further editing.

When I try to edit in CS5 it tells me i need new Raw Plug-in 7.0
Which is not available for CS5.

If I ignore the warning and edit in PS any way- CS5 hangs.
I've tried all the "work arounds" short of using the beta of CS6. Most do not work or are unacceptability cumbersome.
Who wants to use a Beta of anything for production work?
Not me. Especially after the latest upgrade to LR4.
LR is suppose to stream line work flow not complicate it. This version is a DOG.

Check out the Photoshop family forums at photoshop.com to get an Idea of all the issues.
Some of which did not exist in the beta version.
On top of all that it's slower than LR3.
Had to go back to LR3 for production work. LR4 is just too unreliable.
My recommendation for now is DO NOT BUY.

In reply to:

tesch: Has anyone actually migrated from LR3 yet? Just wondering if there are any snags. I have over 100,000 raw images in my main catalog, dozens of collections and other smaller project catalogs that will need to move over.

Yes, I did read the article and I didn't feel this was covered well enough if at all.

yes lots of snags- I would wait.
