I got the promo code email twice. I gave one code to someone local on FB wondering why LR3 wasn't working with her 5D Mark III CR2 files. I've got another code. **GONE** I subscribe to CC, so I really don't need a boxed or download version of LR5.

Could someone explain the differences between DPP, LR, and Photoshop? I almost always use DPP, but I've messed around with Photoshop before. How "in the middle" is Lightroom and would it be worth upgrading to?

Any functional difference between the boxed and download versions?

The boxed version is almost guaranteed not to be up-to-date. ;)

The only advantage the boxed version gives is getting the media for use where a direct download is a pain (and sneaker-net with USB stick also not convenient). I downloaded the trial version, and when my box arrived used the license key to register. My disc could contain nothing, for all I know...

IMHO,

As a recent convert from DPP to LR5 I can say this:

LR5 has a few more controls over DPP for such things as color and contrast, and a few nifty tools like spot removal and an adjustment brush for local effects. At first blush these might seem like trivial differences, but they are not.

On top of that, I have experienced a limitation in DPP regarding how much dynamic range it is actually able to achieve on a given image. LR5 seems to be able to pull out details from blown highlights and shadows that DPP just can't find.

IMHO LR5 is well worth spending $100 to get that extra pop that other folks seem to get that I always struggled to find using DPP. If you aren't one to play with your contrast, tone curves and color controls much, then DPP probably does enough. But I had reached my creative limits with DPP, so LR5 was a welcome upgrade. For me, though - I cannot speak for others. YMMV.

PS is an even more powerful editor that provides lots and lots of tools for pixel-level editing, layering, and straight-up graphics creation. For the photos I take it doesn't offer anything I can't achieve in the GIMP (a free tool), but for anyone that does serious graphics design PS is essential. But that's straying further into pro-tool territory. I would start with LR, especially since it is currently available as a stand-alone product (not "the cloud", grrr).

Again, IMHO, IME, AFAIK, YMMV, etc,

Was it OOS when you ordered it?

Also B&H is closed for holiday until next week.

You have to pay a little bit more to get true FedEx or UPS service. The cheaper rates often use FedEx SmartPost or UPS Mail Innovations. FedEx/UPS deliver to the post office and leave it to the postal service to make the final delivery.

What the tracking tells you is that your packaged was delivered by FedEx to USPS on Saturday. USPS will probably deliver it to you today.

The part I don’t get FedEx had the package the entire time untial it got to my town then they hand it over to USPS (big mistake) for delivery....Well I found the package in my box today with a note from my neighbor a few house down saying the package was in their mail box/ they were out of town for the weekend so they placed it in my mail box today. Glad I have honest neighbors
