thanks all,

I judge from the comments that it is a fine program, yet a work in progress for most users. Probably few are able to take advantage of the entirety of it. I also assume it is not for anyone who cannot devote extended amounts of time to absorb it. I doubt the average owner of the program utilizes more than a percentage of it's capabilities. It is a fine piece of advanced software.

Think about a pencil. It's not too difficult to learn to use a pencil, but it takes a whole lot to be able to learn to use a pencil to produce a high quality fine art drawing. It takes a whole lot to be able to use anything to produce high quality fine art.

I regard LR as advanced because of the results you can achieve, not because it's hard to figure out how to use any of its controls. If nothing else, slide them back and forth and see what they do.

There are numerous excellent tutorials and books on using LR. The Julieanne Kost videos are well worth the time. For specific questions, google does its usual job, or post a question on any number of photo forums.
