Lightroom 5 or Photoshop? + LR5 up to speed (in-depth look at the new features)

- “Which One? Adobe Photoshop CC or Lightroom 5: An Intro For the Completely New Photographer“. Read this phoblographer review here.

- LR5 arrives, is it worth? Read the answer of fixelpix here. “Having played with the beta and now the full version could I survive without this upgrade. Well, probably but at the cost of time. I see the new tools considerably reducing the time I spend in additional applications. Could LR5 mean I no longer need the additional power of Photoshop?

- photograper Piet Van den Eynde published his book “Lightroom 5 Up to Speed. Everything You Need to Know About the Adobe Lightroom 5 Upgrade” at Craft&Vision here. It costs just $5 and most of the images in the eBook were shot with Fuji gear! “This eBook walks you through the installation of Lightroom 5, the new Advanced Healing Brush, Upright, Radial Filter, Smart Previews (offline editing), the improvements to Book and Slideshow modules, and almost 30 other changes, big and small. It also gives you tons of suggestions on how to exploit the potential of these features; plus a bonus chapter about the new and improved Lightroom plug-ins.

    Thanks for the mention, Patrick. Indeed, the cover and all of the images that separate the chapters were shot with Fuji gear. One was even shot with an X10…
    I love these cameras for travel and I also love the fact that Adobe Lightroom finally has a good rendering of the X-Trans files.
    Sure, there may be an occasional raw converter out there that is marginally better at this and another one may be better at that specific feature, but to me, it’s the entire workflow that counts.
