    So was ACR 5.7, but still.....

    I'm thinking about starting an ACR blog.

    I wonder how many out there know how to bump the Exposure slider +- 0.05 with a single key stroke? Lots of people or just a handful?

    I use lightroom for all of my editing. I don't have a reason to use PS. Yet. still a rook. I've experimented and read a lot of information about how it can help though. Wish I could become proficient with it. I like how simple LR puts all the tools that you need [most] in to one program, and easy to use. I wish I used the libraries and the such though. I just use it as an editing program, not organizational at all.

    You're missing half the power of the program. Get yourself a good book on LR and read up. I got Scott Kelby's book and I like the way it walks you through the program. You will never learn all the neat tricks you can do with LR by experimenting around.

    The image editor part of Lightroom is a slightly different version of ACR. Adobe designed Lightroom primarily as a image database manager and intended it as a suppliment to Photoshop.

    Lightroom cannot edit pixels, and cannot take advantage of the most useful image editing feature there is, layers, because it doesn't have them.

    The ACR in Elements lacks most of the capabilities that ACR has in CSx.

    ACR Elements Panels - Basic, Detail, Camera Calibration
    ACR CS5 Panels - Basic, Tone Curve, Detail, HSL/Grayscale, Split Tone, Lens Correction, Camera Calibration, Effects, Presets, Snapshots

    ACR Elements tools- Zoom, Hand, WB, Crop, Straighten, Red Eye, Preferences, Rotate left, Rotate right.
    ACR CS5 has those plus - Color Sampler, Targeted Adjustment Tool (TAT), Spot Removal, Adjustment brush, Gradient tool.

    Additionally in CS5 ACR you can define the color space (4 color, 2 grayscale) the image pixel dimensions, and the ppi.

    It gives you access to the underlying colour profiles for the camera. It allows you to select a profile and bias a few settings in a very limited way. It becomes all powerful when combined with the DNG Profile editor:
