Re: Need some basic advice on LR 4 & NX2

I may have the best tool already and just need to quit wasting time and spend the time and energy to learn NX 2.

Thanks for this input.

I'm starting to see why there is no clear cut - NX is better/worse than LR in my search. As suggested, maybe trial of LR4 and see which is more intuitive to me before commiting to either.

Thank you

NX2 can retain and reveal detail in your raw files that LR 3 cannot. This may have changed with LR4 (don't have it). I use LR 3 and ACR (same raw engine as LR) for the majority of my files, but I would not be without NX2 for the reason stated above.

As an example, I shot some crocus blooms the other day with my D200. NX2 resolved detail in the flower's heavily saturated yellow pistels that ACR just couldn't find, no matter how I tweaked the settings.
