Good features but terribly low performance,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 [Download] [Old Version] (Software Download)
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.
