sparky52t: Being a Photoshop/Camera Raw user, I tried an earlier version of Lightroom some time ago. I came away wondering why I would need, another application to manipulate my photographs. What am I missing?
My only complaint about Adobe's Camera Raw process is the lack of a "history panel" to back-away from a series of changes I may have made. (like in Photoshop) Does Lightroom have something like that?
What you are missing first and foremost is the incredible database for maintaining lots of images.
Hawaii-geek: I Like it! Worth the Upgrade.Have been a LR user from the very first beta. and use LR every day.
The conversion of LRv3.6 to LRv4 is just ok ... you will want to tweak your settings in LRv4, and will get better results via more control imho. There might be a bit more detail. But, that might be from the improved Clarity slider.
With every version, I make fewer trips to PS.
But, Adobe ... Can we please have a LITTLE more SPEED in the v4.01 for Win7 64-bit update ? Please
Maybe a way for LR to use more Memory (preferance slider) or load all the program in memory.
Hello, 36mp Nikon D800 DNGs ... :)
No way to create "Custom Book Templates"?
What specific settings did you tweak from 3.6 to 4?
quicko58: WHY ARE YOU RIPPING OFF AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS ADOBE?
Lightroom v4 has been offered at US $79 for an upgrade $149 full product.At today's exchange rate that would be just under A$75 (upgrade) or A$141 (Full). The UK store would be even better for us on today's rates at A$73 (upgrade) or A$129 (Full).
Instead these are the prices on the Adobe Store here in Australia
Full Product (Boxed) $219.09 + GST = $241.00Full Product (Download) $187.00 ex GSTUpgrade (Boxed) $111.25 + GST = $122.38Upgrade (Download) $98.75 ex GST
I have been a loyal Lightroom user since Version 1 and have also paid for upgrades for both v2 & v3. I wouldn't expect that Adobe would offer it at today's exchange rate but you are not even close. I will be in no hurry to upgrade with the unfair pricing policy that Adobe Australia seem to have in place.
I am sick and tired of Adobe ripping us off in Australia; I know where you can buy it for $19 US - it was posted yesterday on a particularly wonderful site.
lyleking, only one question comes to mind; HAVE YOU USED THE LENS?
