Yesterday I decided to take the plunge and try Abobe Lightroom.. Thanks Gee  It's avalible in two flavours PC and Mac.

The advertising says that its been built from the ground up by photographers for photographers, helping solve your unique workflow problems. Well I've got to say that it really does take the effort out of coverting, touching up, add metadata, archiving etc. These are all jobs that I had to do is different packages and it brings them all under one roof in a interface that isn't just easy to understand its logical too with the library, develop and print tabs these are all features that are understandable as people have been using them for years in photography.and with the addition of the web tab getting your pictures online couldn't be easier. Example of the added metadata. This was metadata I put in for the copyright for my Flickr account

This is a screen grab of the interface taken while I was touching up some images of AutoClav 1.1  from Infest 06 in Bradford. Click on the image to expand it.

Unless someone can point out another bit of software that does all this I think I may just be buying a copy when it's release.
