I had heard so much about LR that I installed the program. I bought the Classroom in a book and faithfully did the lessons. I spent several months trying to learn LR. In the final analysis, I hated it. I didn't like the catalogs and I most certainly hated importing an image so I could work with it. For some I'm sure LR is the greatest program since Obamacare. However, for me, its useless. I ended up uninstalling it and ordering Photoshop Elements. Now, I'm as happy as a Repulican at an NRA convention.
