| p.1 #13 · Question for Lightroom 4 users that also use Photoshop |
Thanks everyone for the replies and suggestions. I don't have photoshop today so tough decision. I'm pretty sure it would see limited use but hard to beat the price at just over $200.
If you don't already have photoshop ... IT'S A NO BRAINER ... GET IT !!!
You may not need it immediately, and you may not use it extensively more than LR depending on your workflow ... but it is an investment into your future usage at a bargain price. Note also, that if you are not a heavy PS user that needs all the new bells & whistles @ future versions, this version could last you for nearly a decade, while you simply upgrade LR's new releases (for camera support / newest ACR) without upgrading every PS new release.
Layers alone makes it worth it at that price.
Definitely what Kent said! I got CS3 on a 50% off deal many years ago and have upgraded all along to now CS6. I use LR4 for cataloguing, reviewing, sorting, MINOR editing, but almost ALWAYS move an image into CS6 for editing and printing. Layers and add-ins like NIK are mainstays for me in CS6. Once I learned how valuable and flexible layers, and particularly SMART layers, could be, I could never go back to just Lightroom.
