alanjdooley: Some people need to read the fine print when they "buy" software. Whether you get a box and disk or download the program, all you are buying is a license to USE the software. Adobe CC does not mean your software and photos are somewhere in the "cloud." It means you are purchasing the license to USE the software on a monthly basis. You can store all of your images and files on your own local computer, just as you always have. By your software checking periodically with Adobe, upgrades are downloaded as they are available. This is $120 per year software. That's all it is.

As soon as the payment missed the install software would be non functional.

Marcin 3M: It is not $10 a month.
It is monthly $10 for a lifetime.
Adobe, let us pay more for the boxed versions. We want this, because it is cheaper.

What would be inflation effect on this $10/mo lifetime?

wireless: I guess you guys won't be happy until you get it for free. Education, health care, food, college, housing, only when it's for free. Plenty of other products out there. Can't afford $120/yr - you should let your camera make jpg's and edit for you. I guess a $100 a month for cell phone or cable TV is okay but $10 for LR and PS is outrageous.

It is misunderstanding … No one country has free Education and Healthcare. Their population pay by from 50% to 76% taxes, which are the norm in these countries.
I still prefer to own the license.

On Lightroom 4 Review article (480 comments in total)

The LR3 Brightness was very useful for me. I have used Brightness/Exposure to keep highlights and brighten the mid-tones. Transferring the images processes as 2010 to 2012 may dramatically change my images end results. How I can brighten mid-tones without Brightness adjustment? :-(

Also, I do agree with zeroing the defaults values. I always set Brightness, Contrast and Black lever to zeros at the very beginning. The set Brightness=50%, Contrast=25% and Black lever 5% is equivalent to +1EV. The opened image would be always shown overexposed when opened with 50-25-5.

The added soft-proofing with Before and After is great!

Looking forward to upgrade!
