Bridge - I really like the file management of Bridge - all in one viewing full screen of files, scan through them quickly, instant reject, file management, everything there in one place.

Layers - being able to edit photos but not change the underlying picture, just adding an adjustment filter to it that I can get rid of if I screw it up.

Anything else I am not sure that I really need or would use. I generally use the hue/saturation/levels/curves type tools, and not the touch up tools. As I said, I'm an amateur, not a pro, and I don't have time to go for long training sessions on how to use said software to its full advantage (hence not liking the £400 price tag if I can avoid it, legitimately).

From what you've said, Lightroom looks like a great option for you. It has more power than Bridge as a photo management tool, all of it's "edits" are non-destructive (the software stores the edit instructions and leaves the image alone), and it has the equivalent of all the other tools you want (hue/saturation/levels/curves), and more.

It is a very powerful tool.
