A bit off topic, but I'm curious why people buy Lightroom if they have Photoshop.
I tried it a few years ago and hated its file management system. Maybe I'm just used to Bridge, but it seems to fit my needs better.
Even Adobe admits Lightroom doesn't do anything that can't be done in Camera Raw. If you use smart objects, they open in Camera Raw and not Lightroom, so you end up using Camera Raw for any smart object edits anyway.
I'm told it has some advantages for batch processing that makes it easier if you are trying to manage large collections, but for a hobbyist, I just don't get it.
What am I missing?
In short LR is also a DAM app (digital asset management) and PS isn't.PS is also far more complex and capable for advanced editing and complex composite's.
Adobe is just trying to lure people with this price but once you take the bait you will be shafted later when price's go up,better of sticking with CS6,it does everything and should last for a long time yet.
And the more of us that stay away from this Creative Subscription crap the more Adobe is to revert to the perpetual license model.
Cloud is ok for some people are having the option is fine,but by removing the option Adobe is trying to manipulate us and force out hand.. I'm staying out.
