5.0 out of 5 stars Not Disappointed June 7, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I know Adobe made this product for the professional photographer, but it is also great for the amateur photographer. I would say that it is "especially" useful for the amateur photographer. It is user friendly, very intuitive, very short learning curve, and your photos come out looking great.

The reason it is good for the amateur photographer is because the software lets you know what the photo is lacking, you have the tools to make the change if you want to, or even, make changes that surprise even you. Without knowing it, you are training your eye and as you continue to shoot pictures, you subconsciously are crafting your photo shoots for a better photo. After my first three weeks with this software, my photos improved exponentially! I even entered some photos in a photo contest!

The point is, for amateur photographers, this will improve your quality of photos before you get to the software, and that is the main point. Money well invested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy download, great for beginners and the experienced September 19, 2012
By erica g
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
One of the main concerns I had when I ordered the downloadable version vs the physical software, was that I would only be able to download the product onto one computer, something wouldnt work correctly... overall, I had NO issues. Once downloaded, I went onto my husbands computer and signed into my amazon account. I downloaded the same way on his computer that I did mine.

You will need to go into your account and look in your orders to find the SERIAL #. You will need this to enter in before downloading. They say they will email you the serial # but the receipt comes, but the serial # is NOT included. You must sign into your amazon account and copy and past it after hitting the download button. After its in, to download on the second computer, you WILL have to re-enter the serial # again.

The product is no less than having the software in hand, and to be honest, I love it because its one less box and cartridge to store. Im really enjoying lightroom 4 as it is easy to use for a beginner, and after just a few weeks, I feel like I have learned something new every day. I do not have any other lightroom experience. However, I did read a lot of reviews on the changes, advantages/disadvantages and I will say that the upgrade to this one is great. Most reviews said if you have lightroom 3 already, it would not be worth upgrading yet. Hope this helps!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good features but terribly low performance September 24, 2012
By J. Zhou
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Well, I purchased LR 4 and was impressed with all the features it has. But wait a minute, why Spot Removal so painfully slow? I have a reasonably good mobile workstation (8-core CPU, 16GB RAM, dedicated nVidia video card, etc.), but the performance of Spot Removal (and some other Develop module features) is just terribly slow. This is reported widely on Adobe Community. Before Adobe addresses this issue, I only give it 2 stars.
===
Update on 11/7/2012: after upgraded to version 4.2, I feel it is much better. Although the performance of Develop module is still not at the level that I would like it to be, I am all happy with it. So 4 stars now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intuitive, Efficient, and Powerful January 27, 2013
By M. Lane
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
It has been a long time since I have been so impressed with a software product. After becoming a DSLR user I quickly discovered the advantages of RAW post processing. I used the camera maker's free software (ViewNX) for a while and found it efficient but unstable and slow. I bought PS Elements and found it to be horrendously inefficient and clumsy to use. The workflow was terrible and I was at a loss until I discovered Lightroom. Lightroom was exactly what I was looking for: A program to go through 100s of photos deleting many and editing the best for color, lighting, and other basic and not so basic things.

Watching one highly rated YouTube video on Lightroom was all the instruction I needed and then the sensible interface explained itself. An example of Lightroom's function is it gives you more control than just lighter/darker but rather "make only the highlights brighter/darker" or "make only the highlights in this area brighter/darker". It gives you color sliders that let you pull down or increase one shade of color at a time. I find this super helpful when shooting through windows that add an aqua tint to my images. One quick adjustment and the color looks natural again.

Another thing I love is the great stability of Lightroom. It's not needlessly slow like other less efficient programs and it does not crash. You can tell that it's a well polished program that has very few bugs left. It was clearly designed from the beginning to give users a fast, powerful, and painless workflow with their post processing. There is a certain joy and creativity that comes with post processing when you are able to do it with such a wonderful tool.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product for working with photos August 20, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download
I really like Photoshop Lightroom. I have been using Photoshop for a long time and was experienced using it. but, I recently had someone recommend and tutor me on Photoshop lightroom and I think it is Awesome!! I process 60 to 100 photos a week and this has dramatically reduced the amount of time I need to edit my photos and increased the quality of the output.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is Lightroom for goodness sake October 12, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Uh yea... Adobe LR4... there is a reason it is the flagship photo editing tool. As a professional photographer LR is an indispensable tool for photo editing and retouching. No, it doesn't have the power of full-blown Photoshop nor does it have the price tag and for it's primary purpose it does everything it should. The software is intuitive with the UI easy to navigate. They have done a good job of making all the tools readily accessible without cluttering the user interface. Neither are a lot of things buried in a hundred menus that are hard to navigate. Rarely do I find myself thinking, "where was the button for that one thing..." That is a tribute to Adobe for really thinking things out.

The filters, effects, and tools in the software are a real bonus as well. A lot of common processing tasks are already built into the software often with a number of variations. For example, to change a color photo into B&W there is an effect available... with about 15 different variations depending on how you want to approach it. Awesome to apply one as a starting point to get you 90% of the way to where you want to be right out of the gate. Rather than splitting the image into each color layer, recombining, rubbing layers through, and adjusting the layer transparencies to finally get at what you want. The ability to quickly apply all of that with one click is a huge time saver and when you have to retouch 100 images from a shoot, these time savers really add up quick.

That being said, although it is a critical part of my workflow, it isn't the only thing in it. I also use Corel Paint Shop Pro in certain situations. For all of LR4's strengths, there are a few things PSP does better/easier. My primary work is in LR4 but I usually break out PSP for a few images per shoot.
