Re: organizing file with lightroom or silkypix picasa?

I used Silky SE(full version for Panasonic RAWs) for more than a year, but after trying LR4 I found that spend so much time for nothing trying to fix tones, pull out shadows.

Seems to be Silky's curves are no HiDef, they are only 8bit. I could not pull out shadows or overlighting as much as I can do with LR.

With LR I can use Export preset for panoramas to make a panorama from selected photos in two clicks. In Silky you have to change development settings to make 16bit tiff, and when you develop usual photos you should not forget to change it back to jpeg (which I forgot a lot and had to redevelop)

Also I'm using plugin for LR to upload photos to some photo-hosting, it remembers all parameters, like URLs for different preview sizes of each photo in LR, so I can easily create HTML code by one of templates.

Though LR4 in developer mode is slow when you switch photos
