Did you hear that Lightroom 2.0 came out this week? No? Have you been living under a photographic rock?
I am a LR geek. Totally. I’ve been using it since about Beta 2 of v1.0 and have never looked back. In the interest of fairness I have given Aperture a spin once or twice, checked under the hood, and kicked the tires, but I always go back to Lightroom with stars in my eyes and a song in my heart. We were meant for each other.
So this week LR v2.0 came out and I’m sitting here thinking how much I “need” it. But do I? Do I need it enough to justify the cost when I’m on my tightest budget in years and taking about 2 photos per month? (Yeah, I’m exaggerating, but not that much!)
Convince me. John Nack tried and Scott Kelby came close, but I still haven’t actually hit the BUY NOW button yet. What’s even more interesting is that so far even I haven’t been able to convince myself, and anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that that’s impressive!
If only they’d added the option to export slideshows to a QuickTime file… *sigh*
