Adobe Lightroom is Adobe's flag ship digital image development program. When I say "image development" I mean just that. Think of Lightroom as a digital darkroom and now you know what is possible in the software.

The first lesson you must learn when using Lightroom is... stop shooting in JPEG. Lightroom can do some amazing things, even with JPEGs, but if you want to enjoy the benefits Lightroom has to offer, you really need to shoot in RAW. You can pull some shadow and some highlight detail from JPEGs, but there is an order of magnitude difference in the amount of detail present in a RAW file.

The other thing to realize is that yes, if you have Photoshop, you can do everything Lightroom does. The difference, for now, is Lightroom 4 uses new controls not in Adobe Camera RAW (at the time of this writing - Adobe now offers a new Camera RAW version), which is where a lot of the new highlight/shadow recovery comes from, so for now Lightroom is quite a bit nicer than Photoshop in that regard. The other, most important piece, to remember is that Lightroom is designed from the ground up to only include the functionality you need for digital photography - you can't do advanced photo editing where you replace a goat's head with a person's or remove trees and so on. If you need that kind of software, buy Photoshop. If all you want is to develop your digital images as they were shot, with some spot removal tools, cropping and so on, Lightroom 4 is the place to be and the interface is designed with just these things in mind.

Next, if you are new to the product, check around the web for tutorials (Adobe has a few) and buy a book. You'll need it. The interface isn't horrible, but not all of the tools are intuitive enough that you can just pick it up and run.

**SEE UPDATE AT BOTTOM OF REVIEW*

Lightroom 4 is a pretty major release for Adobe. They added some pretty significant features, changed a few of the features they had, and tweaked the image quality and rendering a bit. There is a LOT going on here and I'm not going to try to cover it all (the product description above does a good job). Instead, I am going to focus on what matters to me most - using Lightroom to edit professional images for clients.

I'm a professional wedding and portrait photographer and I've been using Lightroom since the release of Lightroom 2. It has since then become the bedrock of my editing routine, covering about 98% of my needs. The remaining 2% is mainly advanced touchup work and is handled by Photoshop CS5. I photograph about 30 weddings and 30-40 portrait sessions a year. I average about 1800 RAW photos per wedding and about 450 per portrait session. This puts my total workload at around 60,000 photos per year and every single one of them are handled by Lightroom.

So after using Lightroom 4 a bit, I am getting acclimated to its new image editing features and am very excited about the new tools. However my main grind at this point is that it is much slower than the version 3 it replaces.

My computer specs:
Intel 2600k overclocked to 4.4Ghz
8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
X-25M 80GB SSD (for lightroom libraries)
HD5670 video card
(multiple) 2TB hard drives for RAW image storage

This setup worked fairly well in the past. The very fast SSD handles the Libraries and the slower HDD handled the RAW files. Well, when I upgraded to LR4 the whole program seemed to slow down a bit, which was very frustrating to me.

I'll keep this short and sweet:
This is my first divulgence into "real" photo editing, now that my photography has started to get to new levels (paid). This program is worth all the money just for the RAW converter, I'm not even kidding. I will probably never use the "book", "map", or even "web" module, and frankly, I'm fine with that.

Back to the RAW converter: If you have a sensor that is rated to have a high dynamic range, prepare to be amazed. You can literally create single shot HDR photographs with excellent recovery of crushed blacks and blown highlights. This has many advantages:
1. You no longer need to do multiple exposures (unless you are looking for an EXTREME dynamic range, such as the "baked" look)
2. You can essentially just point and shoot, and the auto-edit will mostly save the exposure for you, just a few manual edits via the sliders and you're golden. Fine detail is preserved amazingly well
3. You will free up space on your hard drive over time, as normal HDR photos have 3-7 bracketed photos
4. You can do HDR without a tripod, making more subjects accessible to many more photo opportunities

Now, addressing people's concerns over the speed (many, many posts about it on the internet), I have a feeling it may have to do with the OS. I'm running OS 10.6.8 (latest version of snow leopard) with a 2.66 ghz i7 dual core processor, 8 gigs of RAM, and an NVIDIA 330M with 512 MB of memory. It seems the problem lies with either the Windows kernel or even OS 10.7 (Lion, which I've not upgraded to, seen many problems with 64-bit programs). On average, it takes about a second when zooming at 100% in the develop module for the picture to "pop" in focus. This is well within the speed I was expecting, and it doesn't interrupt my workflow one bit.
