ADOBE Photoshop Lightroom 3.0 FULL VERSION £119.99 delivered @ PC World/Currys

Found 22nd Nov 2011
Can't see that anyone's posted this. Excellent price for a full copy of Lightroom 3 (everyone else seems to be charging at least £50 more)

Looks like Currys/PC World have price-matched Amazon's Black Friday deal yesterday, which completely sold out within a couple of minutes.

Great spot - voted hot.
It was about this price for only one hour yesterday on Amazon, so this will give many more folk a chance to buy

Good price OP, voted hot!

If possible/eligible try get the student/teacher edition for about 50quid less

or RawTherapee for free if it's just for raw files

decent but this was about going rate apparently amazon on black friday tryying to make a deal when prices are around this but this about the cheapest so good find.

How do you do that? Sorry for my ignorance.

If you have a DSLR, switch it to RAW, use Lightroom, and have your eyes opened to one of the finest pieces of software out there.

Until you've used it you won't realise why.

Hot price for sure, but even at the usual £150/£160 it's worth every penny and more.

I'm not sure it is the going rate. I noted this offer in the other Lightroom thread, but apart from Play offering this for £125 the rest of the market has it at £175-200+. You might be confusing this with the Academic version, which is much cheaper.

That's a good price for the student/educational edition, but this is the 'full licence' version.

Good for people who don't have a Mac and the ability to buy Apple's Aperture for £50.

Lightroom totally transformed how I processed images. Sped me up immeasurably. I always put off processing in Photoshop, but now breeze through hundreds of photos in LR 2. While also being really confident of backups/non-destructive processing/etc.

Brilliant product and this is a good price.

Is this worth having if you just have a decent compact (non RAW capable)?

In my opinion probably not. I would save your money and put it towards a upgrading to a DSLR or compact system camera, or at least an advanced compact with RAW capability. yes you can use Lighroom with jpegs only, but you won't get the full potential out of it.

Is LightRoom better than Aperture or Capture NX2 for RAW processing?

Thanks for the info. I have just bought a Sony HX9V as I wanted something smaller and less hassle than a DSLR and was considering the Panasonic G3 but still thought it would be a nuisance to carry about for holiday. Alas the Sony does not have RAW but the Panny does, but was substancially more money too! Guess this isnt for me - cheers.

I'd disagree, the RAW processing is only part of what makes this a great piece of software. I'm a professional photographer and use it to handle thousands of images a week, jpeg and RAW. The issue really is whether you want to be creative with the images you take, as the 'develop' part of the software is a wonderful place to play with images and be creative. I'd suggest you download the 30-day free trial from Adobe and see how you get on with it.

Alternatively I recently loaded the latest version of Picasa from Google, which is their free photo management software; having written off previous versions of it I was very impressed with how version 3 could handle images for a casual user. The face recognition so you can catalogue images by who is in them is especially good, bordering on spooky. Excellent if most of your pictures are of family and friends.

Not a bad suggestion, I'll check it out (the 30 day trial) along with Picasa - thanks

I was thinking about getting a Panny FZ150 and buying this to process the raw RW2 files, but after reading up I don't know if Lightroom will be the best option at the moment.

Sounds like they're encouraging piracy with customer care like that...

Not all Mac users want Aperture.

Anyway, good price for LR3. There's no trace of LR4 in Abode Labs yet, so it should be good for another year or so.

Heat as LR3 is a fantastic piece of software.

Would there be any point getting this if you have photoshop element already?

Absolutely. It's a totally different beast.

Entirely depends on what you want to do. They're two different pieces of software for doing different tasks.

Try the free trial and see for yourself.

I've used PSE for many years and earlier in the year bought the student version of LR3 as it was what everyone was saying I should be using (similar to the posts above). I don't like it, at all.

I continue to use PSE (v9) and haven't touched LR3 in months.
