Re: Lightroom 5 question?

Lightroom is a pretty steep learning curve.  I've used Photoshop for a decade, but it took me until LR version 5 to finally give up my previous workflow.  The program is incredibly poweful, but it functions differently than normal photo editors.  All the edits are nondestructive on RAW files, but be darn sure you have a back-up of your LR catalog.  All the edits for every image live here (you can save the edits as an xmp sidecar file if you turn on this option, also).

I highly recommend for training courses.  They have a bunch for LR, and if you watch them live or on rebroadcast the sessions are free.  I've done several three day courses and now feel I have a very good grasp of LR.  It's worth the time for what you can get out of the program.

Best of luck.
