I'm really interested in the Upright feature of LR5. Obviously parts of the image will be cropped out. How much extra space should I give to a photo so that after using Upright, I'll still have most of the important parts of the image intact rather than cropped out?

How long is a piece of string? :confused:

After upgrading yesterday wihout problem, this morning I removed the LR 4 app, backups, and catalog and got back over 30GB on my rMBP SSD. If you delete LR4 remember to one day remove the backups and catalog files.

Anyone find that the thumbnail generation during import is very slow in LR5? With LR4, the thumbnails load very quickly, but with LR5, I have to wait a while (~8 seconds) before the thumbnails show up. I'm importing raw only images.

Images exported at less than 1/3 original size may have NR and output sharpening removed. There are also some bugs with the Publish services which may result in original images being deleted from your hard drive. That is straight from Adobe. Those bugs are significant enough for me to wait.

Do you not use the lens correction tool in LR4? It's the same thing, but LR5 just takes it's best guess at doing an automatic correction. I've found it to be good enough about 20% of the time on non-architecture shots and about 10% of the time on architecture shots. I still end up using the manual corrections anyway.

Slow with no precise control, and very resource intensive. If you have a lot to do, you're still better off with Photoshop.

Pretty impressive so far.
I'm digging the new spot removal. I find myself making less trips to PS now..
A really nice upgrade from LR4

Less trips to PS is very good news. Have yet to test it.

Looks like LR5 is my next choice for the studio. Just hate to have to do watched folder technique for tethered capture with my 6D.

Exactly my thoughts! Photoshop isn't really necessary much anymore!
