"Notes on LR5 ..."

Well here are my comments ...

  • new spot removal -- great but an ability to feather the edges under clone would be nice. I had to remove a drinking glass from a nice (nice for cloning) background, but the edges using clone were very obvious and I had to do a smaller heal just around the edges. Nice otherwise.
  • upright!! - great -- I tried it on a few images I had already adjusted and the result was improved in all cases, and on one I had not touched I have no idea how it figured out what to do, no good straight lines that I could find.
  • radial graduated -- don't know yet -- I will watch for an opportunity to use it

Overall I think its good and I don't mind $79 just for the two things I noted above.

I bought the upgrade. I played with a few shots last night. Our staff photographer turn me on to Lightroom 4 last year. He showed me a trick, I really like. In develop module, turn off the color, and use black and white mode first. I turned on show and shadow highlight clipping, adjust contrast, clarity, and what ever other adjustments that need to be done. Make it look as good as possible in the black and white mode, then when done, go back to color mode. I really like the way photos look in LR 5

Okay, my notes. One note, actually, beyond saying I am really liking it overall.

The application freezes, not always, but often enough to be annoying, when rotating image in crop mode. Doesn't seem to happen when rotating using manual lens correction. When app freezes, need to force quit and then restart the app. Using iMac and OS X 10.8.4.

I did find a rather unexpected issue with the new spot removal.

I rotated a photo slightly without telling it to constrain to the bounds of the photo, so I got two slivers of white top and bottom corners.

I tried to clone something on top of them, but it won't clone outside of the original photo bounds

Dennis -

Can't you click constrain crop afterwards? (I'm using LR4, and can constrain before or after the crop.)

As for the slivers, I usually edit those in CS6 (CS5 works, too) - just select and fill with content aware.

In this case I did not want to constrain the crops, I wanted to grow the image just slightly to get what I wanted.

Yes, I have always used CS6 to do expanding crops and clone, just thought I would try LR5.

This is, unfortunately, correct. Lightroom can't make the image frame larger. The slivers are outside the defined area of the rendered NEF.
