Most Helpful Customer Reviews
First off, I'll say that I am a fan of Lightroom and have been using it since Version 3. It is my go-to program for importing / editing / storing photos both from my Canon DSLR and my family's smartphones.
However, I was unhappy about how long Adobe took to fix glaring issues in their previous Lightroom 5, and now Adobe's new policies for Lightroom 6 are another thorn in my side. Specifically, the policy that standalone versions of Lightroom 6 will get no feature updates is just a poor way to treat new and long-time Lightroom customers.
Looking at updates to the *previous* Lightroom 5, there were bug fixes of course, but Lightroom also gained the following functions: - Lightroom 5.2: added Feather control for the Clone/Heal brush, added Smoothness adjustment slider for Color Noise Reduction. - Lightroom 5.4: added support for Lightroom Sync. - Lightroom 5.7: added integrated Aperture/iPhoto importer. Nothing huge, but definitely some useful...
I tried the one month free trial through Adobe and instantly knew this was going to be something that I needed for my budding photography business. The power that this software puts at my fingertips is beyond what many separate pieces of software could do combined! There are many features such as noise reduction, panorama stitching, HDR Merge, etc. Anything you could want, Lightroom will deliver.
For a wedding photo shoot I did, the lighting in the church cast a yellow hue onto all of the pictures. With Lightroom color correction was easy to do, and made the pictures better than they ever could have been without.
If you are on the fence about purchasing this, I encourage you to try the one month free trial! You will come back and buy it guaranteed! It replaces photoshop in many cases. The pictures that come off my computer that went through this software are absolutely stunning! See example for a picture (All rights reserved).
Don't buy this.
Because Adobe has two "versions", the boxed version and the CC version.
Guess which one gets new features while the other version gets only bug fixes?
You guessed it, this version.
It was all of 2 months after this version came out when 6.1 came out with a number of new features that only CC customers (who pay $10 a month forever) get.
Adobe doesn't care as all it cares about is making money hand over fist, and as Apple discontinued Aperture, they know they can get away with it. Many people have complained, and Adobe's response is the equivalent of just "deal with it, and pay up for CC, suckas".
So don't buy this... in fact, don't buy any Adobe product unless you want to have them charging your credit card every month for the rest of your life just for the privilege of being able to open your files.
