OK, got it now, mainly thanks to Senu's help and his screenshot showed it looked easier to use than CS3, are there any links for newbies to it or advice on the easy bits or standard bits to do ie sharpening etc etc
thanks

I didn't know it was an either or, I thought they did different things and people use both. Is that not the case?
Up to a point , there is quite an overlap is there not?

He had been trying to get round the use of CS3 with the ACR and on balance felt a dedicated but fairly cleanly laid of out GUI of LR was better for him

Hes aware that CS3 is different but a lot of folk who have both use LR for a lot more than they use CS3 especially if they dont want the advanced features
It may be the case he will be best off with LR and Elements if CS3 is not proving " user friendly"

Ive often wondered how different they are given the identical GUI, unless you of course refer to the profiles in camera calibration which dont have native ACR 5 ( unless that is the Adobe standard)

In fact LR3 (beta) RAW processing seems different to LR2.5 using similar settings , so Im guessing the changes are not just cosmetic

I bought Scott Kelby's book on Lightroom & worked my way through it. Thankfully, I already had a pretty good understanding of ACR in CS3, so a lot of the functionallity was very similar.

There are some useful videos on Youtube that I used also.

It's a great bit of software & is superb for improving your workflow & cataloging.

IMG_0112 on Flickr - Photo Sharing!

It's that old shot. That was taken on the rooftop of my old flat and I can assure people the sky was not pink :cool:

I would be interested to know about people's calibration choices when in develop mode
