Re: Adobe LR - no more updates - options?

A shame, it looks a good bit of software and well worth the money. I think if I hadn't gotten so used to LR and had a more powerful machine, I'd likely use it.
I'm lucky as I was just looking for something of an upgrade to Elements. The RAW processing is far superior to what I have used before, and as I was watching all the youtube videos about RAW they all seemed to have the lightroom version with gradients and other stuff I didnt have, so I realised I had only half the tools in the toolbox.
I think I still have a LOT to learn about the catalog and keywords, I used Elements in its basic form, merely using the star rating to shortlist the images I thought worthy of processing, so I really need to refine all of this workflow now I am becoming more involved in my photography again.

I think I have found what it is that runs in the background. I have turned off face recognition and now my computer is running nicely... so thanks I just assumed all of this type of software was memory hungry

Its a shame that humans dont come with autofocus, like cameras do!
