Well, I finally ordered lightroom. A little late to the party, I know. ;)

Congrats Brenda - its a Great Tool!

have you downloaded the free 30 day trial? you can pop in your serial # when you get it

When I got Lightroom a few yrs ago - I wish I had someone sitting beside me for 30 minutes to teach me how to get around, import, organize, edit and export. Would have saved me 6 months of pretty slow process...

Avail yourself of the many many free tutorials from Adobe or youtube. Start with importing and the Library Module, and then the Develop Module and exporting.

Just trying to help you save time. :)

What's the advantage to using a tablet? Can a mouse and tablet be connected at the same time?

I have both connected but once I got accustomed to the tablet for everything, the mouse just sits...

Thanks. I will do that. I have a trial installed now. Getting the hang of it. A couple of things I really like is the exposure brush and the fill light and recovery sliders.

I'm curious... the fill light and recovery terms you use are from Lightroom 3 - did you get Lr3?

Lr 4/5 replaced those terms with Highlights and Shadows... sorry - just curious

OK.yeah...I had lr 5 trial a while back and couldn't get the swing of it at the time and I had other things I wanted to buy first. Then I tried lr 4 cuz I could find that cheaper and thought I'd see what the difference was, then I also tried lr3. LOL I have been through the gamut. I ordered lr 5 though. :) Thanks for the heads up on the difference...it will help me adjust back to lr 5.

I love my tablet. I have owned a Wacom Graphire 2 which I replaced with a Wacom Graphire 4 when I moved and lost the 2's mouse and stylus. I have the 5x4 model with 512 levels of pressure sensitivity and a battery less mouse and stylus it hasn't failed me yet for my needs.

I finally got LR4 installed after backing up and reformating my pc to win7. Been watching youtube videos to get up to speed with it since I have never used LR. I have read that LR5 wasn't faster and was actually a little slower during slrlounge testing than LR4 on their built pc: slrlounge.com lightroom lr5 vs lr4 hardware performance test review (external link)

As I haven't got LR, with what kind of tool do you increase saturation of a given colour[-interval]? Not the curves, I guess? Colour selection tool perhaps with varying the tolerance?

Thanks Vinz,

The way I look at it, if you're doing any kind of editing that seems kind of clumsy or tedious with a mouse... you might really enjoy working with a tablet and stylus in those circumstances. I don't expect that my tablet will ever completely replace my mouse, and both of them play nice together. :cool:

If some of you are still working with just a mouse, you may want to check this out. Depending on the type of work you're doing you might have considered buying a graphics tablet but were put off at the thought of dropping $150, $250 or more on a Wacom. At least that's what I was thinking when my old KB Gear Jam Tablet conked out on me after 8 years or so. :-x

In that case you might want to look into one of these Monoprice graphics tablets.

http://www.monoprice.c​om …1&pn=computer_a​ccessories (external link)

For the most part I'd say don't worry too much about the larger sizes. The tablet doesn't need to be anything near the size of your monitor. My old tablet was a 7x5 and I replaced it with this Monoprice 8x6 and that's about all the desktop space I'm willing to give up. Plus this package comes with an extra stylus and a couple extra replaceable pen tips.

http://www.monoprice.c​om …?p_id=5553&seq=​1&format=2 (external link)

I've never used a Wacom but I can't imagine it working any better than this Monoprice tablet. So far this thing has been working as smooth as butter. It even has a bunch of hotkey buttons and programmable shortcut buttons on it, but I haven't dove that deep into all the options yet. Much better sensitivity than my old tablet and best of all at $42 a whole lot cheaper than a Wacom. :-D

I've looked...but are these compatible with windows 7?

EDIT: nvm...I found it.

It works with Windows 7; that's the system I'm on when I edit.
