I'm thinking about getting Lightroom 4, any thoughts and comments are welcome. i use DPP and elements 10 which i find rather complicated.... Pros and cons are welcome.
Like any other software, that you use for the first time, there is a definite learning curve with Lightroom, but the beauty of LR is that there are tonnes of free tutorials available online, especially on youtube ... take for example, when you do a search for "Lightroom 4" in youtube, you will get over 7000 videos and the majority of them are tutorials on how to use it, tips and tricks and many other cool stuff that you can do with LR4 .... now that's just in youtube, there are scores of other websites that are devoted to Lightroom teaching you for free of charge that you literally do not need to buy any book or course. In contrast when you do a search, in youtube, for Canon DPP you will get less than 400 videos. So the benefits of Lightroom is free and abundant learning anytime, anywhere ... I download lots of videos from youtube to my iPhone and play them whenever I need some pointers, tips etc.
