I have finally bitten the bullet and invested in Adobe Creative Cloud. The package available was £8 pcm for both LR5 and CS6. I thought that good value and I hope it remains so. I have also invested in Phlearn 101 and will start that soon.
I have managed to move images from Lightroom into and CS6 and back again. Also I am attempting to perfect the tool that will be worth it’s weight in gold. That tool is the clone stamp.
In this image I have managed to eliminate a groyne and two marker posts in the sea. This is something that would have been exceptionally time consuming in Lightroom and probably with noticeable artefacts left behind.
