Same here but with Win7 64bit.   Everything works well in V4.  Any ideas?

Check this thread...it's believed to be some sort of preferences issue.

LR5 actually picks up some (all?) of your LR4 settings and preferences, except, at least, for your backup preferences.

It took me a while to download it late this afternoon, but the problem was on my desktop machine. My laptop had no problem. Installation on the desktop went smoothly, as did the import of some of the images I wanted to test. I played with the new heal tool, which didn't impress me, and the radial filter, which looks like it may be very useful.

Obviously, I will spend more time with each in the next few weeks.

This relentless upgrade cycle has become sickening... People hardly got to learn v.4 and we are already on v.5!?

I had expected the Sport Removal - Healing tool (aka, Advanced Healing Brush) to behave like the CS6 Spot Healing Brush Tool, but it seems the main change is the ability to paint an area rather than clicking on a single spot.  In other words, just click on something unwanted to make it disappear, rather than finding an area to heal from.

Am I missing something?

I welcome the new features, but disappointed to see no new features in print module!

It's hardly a chore to learn the new LR5 features as most of them are refinements or variations of existing tool paradigms and some like the vertical correction tool simply make one's life much much easier.  :)

Scott Kelby's favourite new feature seems to be the ability to save your own templates in the Book Module. A tiny change, but a huge improvement for many users I'd imagine..

WHAT???
no snowleopard support anymore???
not amused

Same here, no go for now.

That may change if Apple decides to upgrade the Mac Pro in the coming weeks. It will become a non issue if they don't as I'll probably have become a Win 8 user.

I wonder how good the new radial thing is compared to U Point. U Point is not just a radial selection tool, it is an automatic mask generation utility that is both very easy to use and extremely powerful.

Cheers,
Bernard

It's good, but it's not the same thing as the U Point.  The radial doesn't really select/mask anything other than the area you constrain it too.  Think of it as a shape adjustable graduated filter, that also lets you adjust the gradient in a somewhat spherical manner.   It works pretty good I've played around with it on a few images.

Actually, running the LR5 beta was the reason I upgraded my MacPro Tower to Lion...(but not 10.8 yet). I've found no issues and it seems as many things are smoother and a bit faster with 10.7 than 10.6 (which I still have as a dual boot partition).

So, I'm glad I updated to 10.7 and LR5 was the reason.

Yes, but it is a beta, so there may be hope yet.

Yep... I wouldn't mind doing that now as of 10.8.3 if my Mac Pro 2,1 supported 10.8... :-(

There was a running thread for over 15 PAGES LONG!!!, Have ANY of the requests in that thread been implemented? At least the most popular?

I sure hope they can add a button to "Duplicate gradient or Radial" before the final release.  I'm sure it is more about GUI space vs the command, as I think it should be a snap to add.

Is there any improvement or any adjustments made for the RAW processor/sliders?

Not sure what you mean. You paint in the area you want to disappear, then choose the area with the same shape you want to replace it. Lightroom makes an automatic selection of that area, but not always very well, so you can move it.

Pretty sure that already works in LR5...hold down the command/option (I think-I'm on my iPad and can't check)

So, does it finally have a Color Sampler Tool - like its big brother ACR?

Hi Jeff, can you please point me to an explanation/how to on dual boot partition. Sounds like that might work for me if I want to upgrade to LR5. I have a bit of software that I want to keep using and it won't work past 10.6.8 (spectraview II for my old but still fine 2690wuxi). I'll have to dig around as well to see if I can upgrade to 10.7 instead of 10.8. All they show on the apple site is 10.8.

thanks kindly...
