Re: adobe lightroom

Well, I just d/l and ran it. I still think the lay-out and interface is awful. Nothing to tear me away from RSP although I am aware that purchasers of new model cameras will need something other than RSE/P.
If I have to move in the future it looks like Bibble will get my mullah.

Thanks for the heads-up guys.

Re: adobe lightroom

fiona lightroom is more of a photo catalogue/raw viewer/convertor........a bit light adobe bridge which comes with cs2 allows you to adjust exposure of raw files etc before further cs2 work....hope this helps

Re: adobe lightroom

I don't really think that Adobe have caught the boat on this one. Philis right about what it's intentions are but IMHO.....there are better organisers and viewers (Zoombrowser and Picaso), better RAW converters (RSP, CS2, Bibble) and he interface seems so cluttered because of trying to include everything. I suppose if you want an all-in-one then it might be OK for some. Be interested to see what the price will be.

Re: adobe lightroom

I still have not tried it as I have PC issues if I instal Windows SP2 and Lightroom requires SP2 to run

Over the winter I intend to spend some time looking at all the raw convertors in detail now that Rawshooter is no longer going to be updated. Such a shame as it really was the ideal solution for me

Yeah but since I know I will have to change the software for sure at some point in the future I may as well change it now to something that will be upgraded and supported going forward...

That and a few others are on my list to look at. Getting time is always the factor that works against me though

Re: adobe lightroom

In my take on Photoshop Lightroom it is a tool designed for a photographer's digital workflow that has file, developement, printing and now web based modules to speed up the process from shoot to print and/or web.

It is not supposed to replace Photoshop. IMHO, I like it....but may not be for everyone!

Re: adobe lightroom

It's a strange product, I was hoping it would replace everything in my workflow except maybe any detailed editing I have to do in CS2 (which I try to avoid wherever possible) so that's

- Image ingestion, renaming etc.
- Applying standard IPTC info like copyright
- Initial image adjustments if necessary - white balance, exposure
- Cataloguing, keywords, ratings
- Detailed adjustments for an image I'm going to use, noise reduction, sizing for output, sharpening

It seems like it should do all that but the interface is a bit cumbersome, it doesn't feel at all "professional", it doesn't work properly over two monitors, there's no real versioning. If they're aiming this at professionals they've a lot of work to do before release, if they're aiming it at home users it'll need to be priced accordingly and then it has functionality that they won't use.

I think I'll have to reserve judgment until the final version is available to look at.
