Re: Thanks all

Same experience for me - I learned using Photoshop/ACR/Bridge and I just can't get used to Lightroom.

I purchased the creative cloud which includes all of the above and aside from the database catalog in LR I find myself constantly going back to Bridge, ACR and finishing in PS.

Had I learned on LR I suspect I'd have been happy with it.

As a LR user, you will either love the freedom that PS6, Bridge and ACR give you; or you will be so bamboozled by how different it all is that you will flee back to LR.

I have tried LR, and prefer PSE (which I own) ...

I much prefer CS5 to either of them and use it for all my image mangement and PP. I plan to buy CS6 in the very near future.

It makes more sense to me to keep various processes discrete, and Photoshop does that, and LR does not.
