    I am currently using Lightroom and CS2 for my digital developing
    chores. I shoot 95% in JPEG and do 95% of my adjustments in LR.
    A close friend recently got CS3 (he was using Elements prior) and he
    loves it.
    From a photographers point of view, considering that I do most of my
    adjustments currently in LR, is the upgrade worth it? I have read some
    of the features and some sound very interesting. (Even played with the
    trial for a few days.)
    From what I have read elsewhere, many feel that if you are already
    using LR for most adjustments, the upgrade is not worth the cost of
    Thanks, Steve

    Depends what your cost of admission is I guess. Personally for me it is
    worthwhile, I am also using LR 1.1 and just coming to grips with what that
    can do. Personally I would have a look at the extra features that CS3 has
    over CS2 and look at your upgrade options, many features I use have been
    improved and the upgrade price was acceptable.

    To me, because it may take awhile to learn and master some newer
    features/options so I upgraded to have better chance to catch up with
    others. But my health hasn't been very nice on me so I haven't had much
    chance to explore CS3 yet as I would like to (I waited for CS3 to release,
    then wait for getting used to with new medicine which causing side-effect).
    And I have been feeling quite abit better lately, and I think I may be able
    to CS3ing in the next few days.

    And I agree with you about the upgrade price for 1-1/2 year of service
    isn't too bad.
