I??ve been thinking about downloading the trial version of Adobe Lightroom 4 for some time now but wasn??t sure whether my beleaguered little laptop would cope with it. Last Thursday I contacted my laptop??s manufacturers to check whether it had enough power and they pointed out that I could upgrade its meagre 2GB of memory pretty inexpensively. As they??re a local company all I had to do was take it down to Portsmouth where they would sell me the appropriate quantity of RAM and install it for less than £20 ?? I needed no further encouragement! Once they??d fitted the new chip the old one was surplus to requirements so I thought I??d use it as a macro subject. The 4GB of RAM I bought isn??t life changing but it has helped with my machine??s speed and I do at least have 100% more than the bare minimum required by Lightroom now. Short of winning the lottery so I can buy a super-duper high power computer this is as good as it??s going to get for the foreseeable future. All that remains now is to download the latest version of Lightroom and see what all the hype has been about!
