This doesn't need to devolve into a debate about LR vs CS. As many people have pointed out over and over in this forum, they are different tools that are more complementary to each other than they are supplanting one another. I use them both in a complementary workflow. jetcode happens to prefer a Bridge + CS workflow over an LR + CS workflow. Isn't that fine if that's what he believes works for him. My only gripe is jetcode pointing out that LR lacks in terms of layers, etc. Well, duh... that's why I send images to CS when I need to do that level of editing.

Actually, I know a few people who have a Bridge+LR+CS workflow... and I've been intending to learn more about that. They tell me it saves time on culling, since LR is pretty slow at that. LR, thus is really an advance ACR.

Anyway... regarding JPG file type. I don't store JPGs locally. They all get deleted. The only JPGs that remain are those that get displayed and shared through SmugMug.

When I print at home, I print through LR. When I get photos printed professionally, I send out TIFFs.


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

There is nothing in LR that can't be done in bridge,

It is my understanding that Bridge does not support virtual copies, which is a feature I find to be very useful. I often have three or four different versions of the same RAW, processed/cropped in different ways, using virtual copies.

Gear Canon 5DIII + Fuji X-T2 + lenses + a plastic widget I found in the camera box.

If exporting to work on the file further in an external editor, TIFF; if simply exporting a final product, JPEG.

The camera is just a tool - it is not responsible for the picture.

This and the fact that Bridge cannot sort and display images based on keywords/EXIF etc across different drives/folders. That's the big strength of LR's database system.

I also think printing from LR is much easier, the softproofing facilities are far simpler to use, and of course as you say VC's allow you to keep versions cropped for the different aspect ratios you may need to fit different paper sizes. LR will then remember all the settings that you might want to reuse again, something I could not do when printing in PS, that needed one to set all the image parameters every time you print.

Although I use LR/PSCS for photography I use Bridge with the other CS applications (mainly Dreamweaver) when doing web work. Bridge is a really good graphics oriented file manager and definatly the right tool for that job.
