Great Piece of software,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5, Upgrade Edition (Mac/PC) (DVD-ROM)
I bought this because I got fed up with the limitations if Apple's iPhoto. Apple doesn't seem all that interested in upgrading its professional / prosumer software (Aperture, in this case) and Lightroom was on a half price sale …
Lightroom is a professional photographers tool and I'm not one. There are features in there to allow a photographer to isolate a single shoot and quickly identify the duds and the best shots to be sent to a client. There's even a tool to compare the entire shoot and identify the very best shot. There's an awful lot in Lightroom that even the most serious amateur will probably never use. That being said, the editor is superb. I shot a few beach photos in completely the wrong settings. Lightroom recovered them, not my best pictures ever but well worth keeping. If you're serious about photography and have a large photo collection, shoot in RAW then go with Lightroom.
