You can do all of that from inside of lightroom, which is why I find it so odd when people complain about lightrooms default import settings. It's quite simple: Plug card into card reader,
click "import" in Lr,
select destination drive in right hand panel,
right click to create new folder,
create folder,
if you want to create a sub-folder click the sub-folder option in Lr and give it an appropriate name,
click "import". Done. IMO, faster and easier than doing it outside of Lr and then importing it into Lr.

+1^. I import, organize, edit, delete all within LR. If I need them in a new folder, sub-folder, specific file names, etc. I just create it on the right-hand panel upon initial import.

LR5 runs SOOOOO much faster than LR4 on my machine.

Worth the upgrade alone.

I held out for LR5 to come out. Now I will have to actually buy LR when my demo is over in a few weeks. Glad it is not CC.


What fixer should I use on my digital pictures???

I just noticed the statement on the Adobe site that LR 5 is available as a free (stand alone with perpetual license) download for Creative Cloud members. Does this mean you just have to subscribe to a single app for a month (cancel at any time subscription), get LR then unsubscribe ... or do you need an annual subscription to qualify?

I couldn't find the details :)

I am really impressed with the speed of it.Didn't really have any complaints about LR4 but 5 seems to be really snappy on my machine :)

Didn't know about that and they sure didn't say anything either.

From what i seeing here and there. You only get it if your a full CC member. If your doing a single app from them its a NO. Unless they change there minds. https://www.facebook.c​om …3.98904.5850453​463&type=1 (external link)

Does LR5 have the same process system as LR4? Wondering if LR4 presets will work the same.

I imported 307 jpg's. Fetched a cup of coffee and stepped outside for a bit. When I came back LR5 had completed import. Wished then I had paid attention to what time I started the process, but it certainly went well, leaving me with the impression that it is snappy. So far, I like it just fine. I bought stand-alone version,still not liking the CC choice Adobe wants me to pay forever for.

So far, no earth shattering jump from LR4 like others have noted. Yet some nice touches in lens correction -- perspective control -- interface. It's nice to be able to change grid size and opacity as I work on the images. As a predominantly architecture and interior photographer, this little touch is very helpful.
As I get to know 5 better, I'm sure I'll stumble upon some subtle but helpful improvements.



If it's in focus, it's pornography, if it's out of focus, it's art.

Performance for me is about the same as LR4 which was very good, I like the new features but expected a little more with this release. Everything working as expected but overall, a pretty skimpy upgrade. Only $79, so I bought it anyway, this seems more like LR 4.5 to me as well....

If you want speed, try SSD drive as C and move long term storage to D.

Or even just add SSD as D drive and put photos there.

I did this (LR3) and experienced about double the speed for just about everything, especially imports and paging between photos.

I now don't shy away from using full RAW.

Can't wait to up to LR5.
