Thanks for a thorough and thoughtful report, Brian. The issues you  
mention have not been issues for me--I guess I just figured out early  
that there was no need to let it back up images that I had already  
backed up to an external HD and DVDs. And since I do not keyword,  
those problems have not affected me. But I do hope Adobe fixes them,  
since at some point I will need to start being more diligent about it  
all and start keywording.

Aside from that, for the past several months I have not needed to  
open Photoshop at all, except when treating film images--they need  
more spotting work than digital ones, and Photoshop is still better  
at that. Otherwise, I think Lightroom has been a tremendous boon for  
me, allowing me to manage the whole workflow from the initial RAW  
conversion to final output in one program.
