Can't u just upgrade if u have LR?
Just started to use LR5 to process and I have to say the speed isnt that much of a difference.
But what I found was that the lens correction tool. Esp the perspective and level options are bloody awesome.Dont know if they only work for cameras without a "spirit level" but it has saved me hours of work leveling and making every photo perfectly square
This looks awesome, however you do need to own PS CS3 first. Sigh.
Clone tool is the bomdiggity.
Smart Previews are pretty cool as well (in a form of a backup if you are say, saving your catalogs to dropbox).
I dont use the level options but might give it a try.
I find the level tool to be a total POS.
Hopefully this isn't derailing the thread...
I would like to try out LR5 for some photo touch ups. Am I better going with a student subscription to CC (also getting PS etc), or just buy LR5 to keep?
Why not download the free 30 day trial to try it out?
Apparently you dont need CS3 to get the LR/PS Bundle. This in only till Dec 2 though I think... But, after their recent hack, can we trust adobe with our details?
I always make sure I edit with a Tin Foil Hat.
Just goes to show, risk is everywhere with personal information.
I remember LR4.4 it was slow as snails and sometimes would hang the system. Never used it in L5 because of that. But whats major the difference?
You can drag it around and do lines and not dots and its actually pretty good.
Saves me taking stuff into PS all the time like I used too.
LR is generally just crap performance wise
If LR6 doesn't utilise all cores and GPU I am going to rage.
I love LR for RAW grading, but the render times vs anything that utilises CUDA makes me
That would be the best thing ever. I dont know why they didnt do this sooner. I mean this was around in the 2000s when I was still at uni transposing images with openGL.
And yet they probably won't.
LR4 had crippling speeds (a tad exaggerated, but lots of complaints about the speed) and yet LR5 offered little to no optimisation.
Yet we keep upgrading....lol
I'm still on LR4. It's actually more useful as I can render straight to mp4
