To LR 5 users, sorry if this was answered before, but is it worth the upgrade from LR4 (besides the better splash screen, mentioned in a prior thread)?
I have the same question. The more powerful heal tool would be nice, but is that and the other upgrades worth it to a very budget minded amateur?
Nobody can answer that for you.
I'm really glad to see the heal tool upgraded, but it's not enough for me to upgrade. If I have to do any serious amount of healing I just jump to PS.
I'm also glad to see perspective control added in, but I already own the DxO plugin. However, it's not seamless, in that it creates a new file. If I do any more big projects in RE/Architectural I'd probably upgrade simply because it's a timesaver when doing it on a large amount of photos... but the hobbyist in me couldn't care less.
Radial filters and whatnot are nice, but I can do all that in PS if I want.
So for me, no, not worth it. But it depends on what your needs are. I'm also assuming you're talking about upgrading from 4 to 5.
