Summary: Well worth the upgrade price
Comment: Lightroom 2 is a great upgrade from Lightroom 1. With many of the new features it has, you will find that your trips into Photoshop will become less & less frequent.

The print module is now excellent, with it's new improved output sharpening feature.

It is well worth the price of the upgrade.

Summary: LR2 IS PERFECT FOR TRAVEL PHOTOS
Comment: The equipment I use is a Professional SLR with several prime lenses. I shoot citiscapes,landscapes,wildlife. So I don't need complex laying tools to interchange faces and bodies as are provided in full photshop CS4. The spotting/redeye/cropping/hue/saturation/tone curve/brush/graduated filter tools in LR2 are more than enough. In LR2 these are presented as easy to use sliders on the same screen with your raw camera image, so you can quickly make any adjustments and get on with showing them. All adjustments are stored as 'orders to do later' with your raw image, and they are not applied until you export from LR to print, DVD, HDTV. They remain in the LR2 library as well and you can go back anytime, reset a former adjustment, and do it over differently, change to black and white or whatever. No pixels are ever lost.

LR2 is logical, easy, lossless, and fairly cheap. If you need more exotic tools, add CS4, as LR2 provides for moving images into CS4 for additional work while keeping the original raw image in the LR2 library unchanged. The LR2 book by Martin Evening is so far the best book I've found for how to use the software.

Summary: Great Improvement
Comment: I have had LR 1 since its inception and must say didn't really want to upgrade, but the new features are well worth the upgrade price, don't know if I would have bought the entire product though...

Summary: more than an incremental step
Comment: If you like Photoshop, you should definitely be using Lightroom. It's picked up a few features like red eye fix, spot removal and adjustment brush (this feature alone is worth the upgrade) that make your workflow almost all Lightroom. I don't do high-end art photography or graphics,which calls for more Photoshop, so Lightroom is superb for 98.5% of what I need to do. I have used all versions of Photoshop Elements, CS3 and all versions of Lightroom. IF, I were starting out afresh, I doubt I would need to venture beyond Lightroom.

Summary: Great program just got much more powerful
Comment: This is a great improvement over lightroom 1 which I used since it originally came out. It is great for organizing, categorizing and doing almost all of the needed adjustments. So far I have not needed to purchase Photoshop, but I do use this in conjunction with Capture NX2 which I also think is extremely good and a great upgrade from the first version. When importing Nikon images you do get better results if you import them using Nikon own software, especially if you shoot raw images. They start off much sharper and needing less processing. But after that I like using lightroom for various editing tasks to supplement what is available in NX2
