No, spot removal tool in LR5 is definitely not a garbage. It may take some time to get used to though.

Ok thanks Mag, you're great for helping me out so much! :) I figured I was using it wrong because it ruins the spot I'm trying to heal lol. What's pushing me away is that I just haven't taken the time to learn it yet :P I know I'll love it once I get into it

Good. The beauty of LR is in its complex simplicity.

When you open the spot removal tool, check to see if it is on Clone or Heal...there is a difference in how they work.

hehe, it normally takes more than 51 minutes to work the photo editing software out :) I wish you find your way soon.

Haha :) Yeh I have looked at it a few hours (in the past) but this time I'm taking way more time to figure it all out. Thanks again for helping me out, I don't have anyone near me who would be able to help....flyin' solo into this mess of photography would suck without this forum for sure! :P. I will put quite a bit more time into figuring it out and really understanding it's details. Hopefully it becomes my main editing software as it'd make it a lot faster (with the film roll on the bottom and such).

One of the major items with LR that seems to be overlooked is that the edits are all non-destructive. You can revert any time. And you can also just make a virtual copy of any image and edit it as you would the original.

And the fact that editing in LR is non-destructive is one of the reasons it's not as feature rich as CS5 or CS6.

Keep at it, it's worth the time and effort.

It seems like a good upgrade, been watching a video on it for a bit and been messing with it a bit. Seems faster, but this video is just suggesting that I go to PS for spot healing things so idk if that's what I want to do or if I should really try to maximize the usage of LR if I am going to use it

One caution, Adobe TV is evidently using LR4 to demonstrate LR5 which misses the enhancements in many cases.

Alright. Given LR a few hours (like 5-10 hours) and...you guys have converted me lol

This program is much better than PS for the simple idea of the camera roll. I love that little thing on the bottom. I have barely even touched the surface of what LR can do and I love it. I haven't tried side by sides, the rating system or anything like that but MAN is this program good! I'm would say that I'm twice as fast as before. It's not blazing fast, but I edited about 35 images in only a few hours (that's good for me cuz I'm usually facebooking and doing homewrok at the same time).

This will come in handy for the shoot that I just scheduled for this Saturday. My clients texted me Wednesday (they are friends) and they want the shoot on Saturday and everything to be done by Sunday or Monday....they are making Christmas cards and just got this idea now -.-...Well whatever they want, customer is always right and I guess I'll be bookin' it to get these pictures done!...This is on top of a concert I'm going to Sunday night where I wanted to take a TON of shots...if only I had my bosses 70-200mm F4 lens for that ;P
