Yes, I know how to import and export, I can change to b&w, I can adjust colors, sharpness, values, use the presets, crop, and add tags and make collections.
What the issues are - is it doesn't seem to do half of what PSP does - I can change any little tiny thing in PSP. I can add a watermark/logo and resize it and move it around. You can not do this in LR - you can set up the watermark and then it just puts it in there. Once LR has it on the photo you can't do a thing with it. Sometimes I need it to be bigger, smaller, I don't like it in the one corner, it would be better in the other, or I don't want the white watermark, I want the black, or the cream, etc.
With PSP there are all these wonderful menus that you can look at and go OH what about that, what will that do? Then you learn something new.
LR doesn't have any of that. With LR you have to already "KNOW" how to do everything and when you don't know how to work LR to do what you want, then it's a totally pain in the rear end LOL
I have watched HOURS UPON HOURS of LR videos on youtube.com and the Adobe website - and still am not any closer to getting things done in it.
Because all of the how to videos seem to be "oh you obviously know how to use LR so we are just gonna show you even more shortcuts without explaining a single thing at all" Sigh
And that is where the frustration is.
The how to videos an LR are designed for people that already know how to use it to it's fullest.
I can't tell you have many HOURS of "how to insert a LR preset into your folder to be able to use" and NOT ONE of them actually works. I will turn it on, watch it like 5 times, pause the video, do the exact steps and not a single one of my presets are available.
However, in PSP, I can add a preset/script/filter and whammo it's right there the very first time for use without any problems.
There needs to be a "OH, you leased LR, and have no darn clue.. so let me show you how to do it.. this is how you open it, this is where everything is at, this is how you do this, that and the other" instead of all this "run your preset, export" and whammo you are done
It's just so very aggravating and not at all user friendly for the new user. I have "attempted" to use LR for about 8 months now and can't tell you how very much I hate it. I have cancelled the lease at least 3 times, only to start it back up again and then try again and again and again... only to still have no clue how to really use it much less get the photos to look the way I want.
