"This program is not for professionals"
When the program works it is a dream.
Does lots of things that makes the work flow easy
Easy to learn
I had 1800 character so I will cut it down to this
Program crashes and locks up all the time
I am a pro and have the latest computers 16 gigs of ram huge storage and fast vidio card.
You can not get customer service on the phone and it took them 2 days to get back to me with their same old answer take the program off and reload it. They make you feel like your are the only one to have these problems until I went to a workshop or convention and found out everyone was having the same problem of crashing and locking up. I have used the product from pro 3 and just don't have to have to go through the learning curve with a new program. Plus I keep thinking they must have fixed these really bad problems in the newer version only to find out I was wrong. Now I am thinking they would have to do to much back tracking to fix it so they can't at this point as it would cost to much so they keep hoping they sell it to newbee with out much demand for large files of 3 to 3 hundred images.
If you can put up with the crashing,locking up frustration of never speaking to a customer service person and don't mind being treated like a mushroom --kept in the dark and fed a bunch of poop You will probable love the program as I said if it worked as it is sold it would be wonderful but that has not been my experience and I have had the program from Pro 2 and bought all the newer versions and the older programs worked better as they were simpler and not trying to do everyithing. But like a fool I keep buying the newest, thinking; in this version they muct have solved these very bad problems of crashing and locking up just to find out no the are still in the program and get pissed at my self but I know the program so well I just don't want to have to go through a new learning cruve with a new program. however If I was starting from scratch I would go to ADOBE LIGHTROOM from the start.
