    Hi Nex-Folks.
    My equipment contains:
    Camera= Sony Nex-5N

    Software in use:
    - ACDSee Pro 6
    - Corel Paintshop Pro X5
    - Gimp 2.8 + RawTherapee

    Now Adobe and Amazon have LR4 and PSE11 on x-mas sale...
    Now i think about going the change to the main software brand to get better books and worksops on the internet and use CameraRaw correcting infomations...
    Dows it make sense to change my non-pro workflow to Adobe LR4 for 95 EUR or PSE11 for 59 EUR??? :confused:
    Also my PC is not really 100% up to date...
    DualCore 1,8 GHz
    2 MB RAM
    2x500GB Harddrives

    Lighhtroom is worth it, PSE is garbage IMHO. But consider Lightroom to be quite slow with RAW files on your computer.

    Never used ACESee Pro, but afaik Lightroom is currently the best RAW-converter and library manager available (for any plattform, although many people including me prefer Aperture for it's much cleaner interface).

    Sometimes things get clearer without doing something... :rolleyes:
    I checked LR test version and recognized that...
    now what...?
    Windows XP is not supported by LR4 and I still run XP without ANY issues so i don't want to change anything...
    So I don't change my software equipment until my PC brakes down and I have to buy a new one... :p

    This morning I ordered Photoshop Elements 11 and Elements+.
    Don't regret ist so far, program runs smooth and seems good to handle.
    We'll see...
    Also bought a handbook from Galileo Press (I love their books, but of course they're only available in German...) :D
