Lightroom 5 Rocks
This latest version of Lightroom is great. I also have Lightroom 3. For my needs-dust spot removal from film scans and minor exposure adjustments and cataloging images Lr 5 is more than sufficient. I have Photoshop CS5 on a PC & CS6 on a Mac which have way more features than i need at this time. I find working in Lr to be quicker, both to learn and use. One unfortunate thing.

I have Photoshop CS5 on a PC & CS6 on a Mac which have way more features than i need at this time. I find working in Lr to be quicker, both to learn and use. One unfortunate thing. I had to install OS X Mountain Lion on my Mac Pro (Lr 5 won't run on Snow Leopard). Fortunately, I had an empty hard disk so I was able to install Mountain Lion OS and Lr 5 there and still keep Snow Leopard OS in its original place. I definitely recommend this software.

Don't waste your money
Not user friendly-collections try to take over my personal system. Also does not support raw files on my new P7800 even with the update. Stick to PS or PS Elements.

NOT COMPATIBLE WITH VISTA
This is an amazing program, and, once you get used to it--which isn't so difficult--you'll be amazed at it's power. It can make good shots look great; great shots, fantastic.
My wife and I shoot weddings, senior portraits, and sports throughout the year. This program has all the necessary adjustments to take our images to the next higher level. Loaded very quickly and also loaded the new version 5.4 immediately without any prompting.
I use this primarily for photo editing. The interface is great and the software processes changes quickly. I used to use Photoshop which is still fine for many things but working with RAW files with Lightroom is easier once you know what you are doing.
The best is the adjustment brush. One less reason to use Photoshop.
This is the most resonably priced and complete digital workflow software.. We use it for photography instruction at our uiversity. Just buy it!
My photography teacher told us to shoot in RAW and get Lightroom 5 so at first I grumbled about having to learn a new system, since I had progressed from Elements 3 through 11 but after purchasing Scott Kelby's text on Lightroom 5,I am starting to enjoy the new features of this program. With the new downloads, it opens Sony RAW, which my version of Elements 10 did not. I can also use LR 5 on my desktop and laptop so I'm glad Adobe doesn't make us buy two copies of their software.
Editing to refine photos... Ease of use and available online support... Program space and computer requirements...
It's not for nothing Lightroom is the best photo organizer on the market. The new features are a great addition and add so much more to the abilities of post processing of photos. I had LR for a long while now and I still discover features and abilities that help me organize my collections. With the discounted deal- it's a MUST HAVE.
Lightroom is an amazing product but Adobe needs to listen to its users more and address their issues.
