Adobe Lightroom 2: Further Use

So I did a test and found that as long as I save the metadata to the file, Adobe Bridge (even with CS2) can correctly read the changes.  So I decided to work in Lightroom to see if it was worth buying.  I can say that I am really loving it!  I’ve been able to adopt my usual RAW workflow with only some small changes.  Now I can’t see how I could ever work without LR!!  (It’s no wonder why Adobe gives a 30 day free trial!)

What do I like about LR?  It IS still a bit slower than I’d like, but overall not too bad.  I’m pretty sure I can make it work better if I tweak some settings.  I find the metadata editing to be a lot easier and requiring a lot less clicks.  I LOVE the side-by-side comparisons and survey mode.  I don’t know how I lived without that.  I also love the dimming of the lights.  That REALLY helps me focus on the photo.  At first, I thought it was just a gimmick.  And the metadata filters make working with the photos a LOT easier!
