It's Changed Our Photography

I gave Lightroom 4 to my wife for her birthday. It's changed her photography dramatically by making the skies in her images come alive. I've watched how dull, gray skies have turned into dramatic ones that literally pop because of the gradient filter. Each day she discovers something new and wonderful about this program. It's made such a difference in her photography that I'll soon be buying my own copy.

User friendly w/ great functionality

By

from New York, NY

I use this software to make minor edits to my images, such as adjusting levels. It's so easy to use and just gives my images that extra pop. I was disappointed that I couldn't use v.5 with my Macbook, which I only purchased in 2011, but for now, v.4 will suffice, as I don't tend to use very tech-whizz functions.

I love it!

By

from Jacksonville, FL  -  Quality Oriented

I just love Lightroom 4! It`s so easy to use and way faster than photoshop. I understand I can´t use it for more complicated things, but I CAN do 99% of the editing in LR 4! ANd for that price- can`t get any better than that!

Almost perfect

By

from Arlington TX  -  Quality Oriented

Experienced Photoshop user, now learning Lightroom 4. LR4 has a "million" options that are not always easy to find. The book gets you off and running. As the e-version is searchable, going back for second a look is easy. The book leaves out small details often. Had to use other sources (on-line) to find out what menu options were used for.

Way Better than Lightroom 3!

By

from Burlington, WA.  -  Quality Oriented

Advanced Ametuer of over 30 years experience with a camera. This program is Wonderful and way better than my old copy of Adobe Lightroom 3! The controls have changed quite a bit, so it took a few minutes to get situated; but those few minutes spent were well worth it! My work flow has speeded up and my photographs are coming out amazing!

I use this product for wedding, family, portrait, model and special event photography. This is a great upgrade with additional features I like. It has also cut down on post processing time a lot. I would definitely recommend it to any beginner, intermediate or professional.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will lightroom 4 go with windows premium?
ARTHUR N  I am running Windows 7 Ultimate with LR 4.3 and it works great. the compatibility table on Adobe site states Windows 7 with no versions so I would assume all versions are supported. I think the big thing will be the h/w. Get as much memory as possible and a fast hard drive (SSD would be even better)
Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
RICHARD M  Recommended by a friend.
Shopper  Is it intended for US market only or for European market as well?
NORMAN S  On the box is the statement: "only for distribution in North America, not for anywhere else, including the EEA, Switzerland, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East, the Carribean, South America, Central America, Japan, or Asia Pacific"
