These are all great examples of what you can do with raw images.I haven't read all of this thread, but it looks to me as if 99% of the responders use Lightroom for their conversions. Anyone here use DPP or maybe Paintshop Pro to do this? Or maybe I need to go on and order LR.

FYI:

LR5 Beta is out.

Cheers.

I've been playing with it, some pretty interesting changes. The "spot" grad filter is particularly interesting. The new customizable (size/shape) spot healing tool... okay, but not outstanding.

I just got 4 and don't see alot of real additions to it, some for sure but nothing lens shattering. This is my opinion and maybe for some it will be awesome.


Yup I like cigars. 7d, T1i and a bunch of other junk.

the main thing we're looking for is speed, though.

I here you. I got LR4 3 wks ago +- and have been going through my catalog of pics (5 years of DSLR stuff) and find it somewhat slow, I do have 16gb of ram and a fairly fast comp. In all fairness I think it may be the external HD I use too.


Great job Jam13 .... that's an awesome city scape. A+

I have an SSD drive. LR4 is still pretty slow. Computer boots up in 13 seconds to Win 7 though :)

Do you have a certain preset that you start off with before tweaking?

Slow down. This is the first beta. Adobe releases new functions in "installments". Usually the final product has a feature that nobody in the public beta has seen. As usual, software makers sometimes deliver unworthy stuff.

@ those, who complain about slow LR4...proper setup is the key for speed.

BTW, I do not want to hijack this thread...there is a lot over in the computer and software thread.

Google can be your friend too...:)

Cheers.

Thanks Roshan :)

I don't use presets at all! I don't believe in using them. Every photo is ALWAYS different. I always start from scratch for every new shot that I open in Lightroom.

I will have online tutorials/videos coming soon on my website and youtube channel, if everything works out over the coming months or so. So subscribe to www.jamesmcgregorphoto​s.com (external link) if you are interested in learning some great techniques!
