Excellent software, great features.

Lightroom 5 has really sped up my workflow. Well, Lightroom 4 did most of that, but the added features in 5 are great to have.

My ratings applies for the upgrade, not for Lightroom which is a fantastic tool.As an under water photographer, I was interested by the new tool "Visualisation" to remove backscatters spots, it is not so easy and surely not automatic! I was a bit disappointed, but improves the results. In the other hand, the new radial filter is a real progress, and very easy to useThe enclosed picture was developed with LR4 and with LR5 by using these new tools. quote 3 stars only due to the high price for this update.

      Better than Aperature

      Comments about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 (Download):

      Was an Aperature 3 user... But no longer supported with the new Yosemite X update, so switched over to Lightroom. Way better than Aperature!! Wished I switched over a long time ago. Very pleased.

          For years now, I have been using Photoshop exclusively for photo-editing. Moving to Lightroom took some convincing, but I am finding it over and above a better solution for the majority of my photo-editing needs. It is designed for photos specifically, making it easier to do quick adjustments without creating layers and fiddling too much at the level of pixels. I felt the learning curve was not too steep, and that I am finally seeing the photos I want to see at the end of my editing sessions.

            Comments about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 (Download):

            I had been holding off migrating over to LR5 mostly due to fear of the learning curve and re-organizing. Now that I have made the transition I am thrilled. The migration from Aperture to LR was SO much easier than expected. For starters, LR5 has a very clear file/folder structure and the editing tools are amazing. I'm noticing "something extra" in my work that I didn't know was missing...

            I shoot hundreds of photos per session so the "rating", "rejecting" and "labeling" in LR is a treat! I import directly in, do some basic edits then run everything through PS6 and my favorite plugins with no hiccups.

            The only downside was getting used to the "importing flow" and re-organizing my entire collection of photos. It took a few days to get everything together but was well worth it. The tutorials were "key" in making that happen.

            Bottom line... I'm very happy with this product....

              Comments about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 (Download):

              I recently started really getting back into photography and found that Photoshop Elements just wasn't quite up to the handling a RAW workflow coming off my new D7100, so I took the plunge into Lightroom. I still have a LOT to learn to really get the most out of it, but I have found that it is easy to use the basics and the workflow is sooo much faster and easier to process images from a shoot.

                  Long time aperture user that finally made the jump to Lightroom. Does everything that Aperture did in terms of organization and adjustment. Photo Books and Slideshows initially seem to be not quite on par with what Aperture did, but I don't find that to be as important as what it does better. Plenty of options out there to create photo books that are just an export of images away.

                      Import went smooth and am finding a lot more useful features in Lightroom.

                      I have used Aperture for a long time because it was a natural progression from iPhoto. When Apple announced it would no longer develop the program, I pondere if or when I would move to Lightroom (LR). Now that I have made the switch, I wonder why I did not do it sooner. LR is very intuitive and helps turn average photos to phenomenal ones with little effort. Batch processing is very simple, and LR supports custom camera profiles. It's features are to numerous to list, so I say try it. You will not be disappointed.

                          I use the product to edit some of my photos as a photography enthusiast. I have taken a number of Aurora Borealis photos that need just a little enhancing to be appealing to the eye. This product seems to fit the bill in adjusting photos to make them brighter and to reduce noise in high ISO and extended shutter speeds. I have not completely learned all of the functions of the program as there is a lot to learn. Overall, it is a great program I would recomend to anyone who takes photos, regardless of skills or abilities. It is reasonably priced for the abundance of great features it has.

                          I had never had any experience with Lightroom prior to my purchase. I have thoroughly enjoyed its ease of use and the amazing quality it adds to my photos. I am very pleased with my purchase.
