Don't worry - I'm as cool as a breeze here.
Now that we all know where we stand, let me see if I've got this right. Lightroom will never be a full, standalone application for working professionals - at least not in the forseeable future, if ever.
For the professional, Photoshop will always be required to put the finishing touches to any serious work.
That's all I wanted to know, folks. Thanks for your trouble.
Leaving Adobe's self interest aside for the moment, I'm wondering is it technically possible to produce such a Lightroom product? I stress the world technically.
Incidentally, on another forum, I was reminded of the following Adobe quote: 'New Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® software is the professional photographer's essential toolbox, providing one easy application for managing, adjusting, and presenting large volumes of digital photographs so you can spend less time in front of the computer and more time behind the lens.'
Interesting, huh. As an avid fan of LR, I hate to point out it is far from that at the moment, and according to you guys, will never reach that stage for the professional.
