    1.1 will be improved. you can make a sharpening action in PS, save as a droplet, the put the droplet int he post proccessing module and whenexporting have it run the droplet

    I was editing a friends photo of a sky full of lightning :o

    the noise reduction is fine for normal shots, but not enough something that is a bit off or deliberately boosted.

    Both the noise reduction and sharpening in lightroom suck. I guess I just don't edit enough photos at once to warrant using that program. Maybe if I shot weddings, or something.

    noise reduction and sharpen are the same in lightroom as they are in ACR.

    They're meant for slight tweaking, not full on photo sharpening for print or web.

    The best method is to leave sharpening alone til you get into PS, where you have much more control via unsharp mask and smart sharpen. The only sliders you should be using under that tab in lightroom are the noise reduction to reduce color noise, and the luminence smoothing to reduce pixelation... But be careful, as sliding either of these up will make the image muddy...

    Remember -

    ightroom/ACR = exposure/color correction issues + minor editing

    PS = photo editing and correction for print or web.

    I've been playing around with Lightroom, and i don't like it. I think i'm just so used to the PS interface that it doesn't feel right to me.

    Although i'm WAY behind the times, i've recently been introduced to Noise Ninja, and that program blows my mind.

    Check out noiseware pro. It's better, IMO.
