You need to go and watch the videos on adobe TV by Julianne Kost.

Shes very good at explaining how to get into it and make it all work.
SLRlounge also have a great set of step by step videos.

Thanks I will take a look as I am sure its an awesome tool.

I'll be coming back to NZ in a few weeks for a holiday (and a look round Christchurch), so for those that dont mind waiting a bit I can probably pick up a couple of physical copies of Lightroom 4 at US prices... (US$149 at B+H currently, or Upgrade Version at US$79 -assuming it's available in the next week or so)

You can pay into my NZ bank account.

PM me if you guys are interested.

I love Ligtroom and now do 90% of my processing with it.
It has some great bulk processing possibilities where you van select a bunch of photos, process one, then tell it to do the same to all the others. Great when you have colour balance problems, or have done a bunch of high iso photos and want to apply the same noise reduction or sharpening to all.

Most people dont realise but DPP does this also :)

all my motorsport photos were done with LR ..... batch processing and contact sheets. Photoshop for landscapes.

Intresting to see what I can do with my videos in LR4 .... mts format.
Looking foward to CS6 ....... have to decide if worth upgrading for school from cs4. 12k last time.

oh new mortage intrest rates kicked in diff between 7.75% and 5.25% a fornight $354.93 ........... holy cow

Yes, I have done it in dpp. But it was not nearly as convenient, easy or fast as in Lightroom.

Banks CAN move on their intrest rates ....... just tell them your walking to another bank.

Moppie, I have added a question on AdobeANZ about price too.

I am interested in the book feature in LR4 as I have used Momento in Welly in the past and am very pleased with the result. What are the options for printing the books from LR4 do you know?

Nice to talk to you guys again!

For a customer they want to keep banks can go down 0.35% from their rack rate, probably more if you push it. That can make a difference of $100/month on a $300K mortgage. Not bad for very little effort.

Nice BS PR response but at least they listened and did something about it.

There is still a big difference in price, but its wearable given how cheap it is.

Now they need to change the prices for the rest of the product range, which are still 40-50% above US pricing.

Good luck with that Moppie. And thanks for kicking that off.

We dont have any interest rates lol.. this is our first house/mortgage... we'd like to stay with the bank we do banking with.. makes it easier in that we dont have to provide them with any documentation - he just turns up.. so we'll see what he says :D
