Calling out to all lightroom users, would appreciate a little bit of your advice.
I'm considering using lightroom 3 to manage my photography, but as I have no prior experience with it, I'm not sure if it suits my needs.
For many years i've been using the photoshop+ACR+windows explorer combi as my workflow. Gradually, i've been finding that this workflow just takes too much time, effort and isn't quite as elegant as i want it to.
I want a simple way to import, organise and batch edit my photos. I want to spend as little time managing the photos as possible so that I could focus more on the editing. Does lightroom allow for all photos in a library to be sorted, by say rating, or date, or keyword? And does the editing features allow me to make local adjustments to the image? (Such as selective sharpening, curves adjustments etc) Is there a backup feature in lightroom as well? How about facebook integration?
Any thoughts much appreciated. thanks in advance!
