How I realized LightRoom was serious

Off subject of digital backgrounds but thought I would just throw this out in case any of you thought of Lightroom as I did.  Being a CC subscriber I automatically have it but never really paid much attention.

I played with ir but found it simpler to just go to my pictures folder in finder as they were all in separate shoot folders anyway-much less trouble and time than using Lightroom and Tammy would not have anything to do with Lightroom.

Watched a video by Terry White on portrait retouching  http://tv.adobe.com/watch/creative-suite-podcast-photographers/how-to-do-a-complete-portrait-retouch-in-lightroom-5/  After watching I was impressed and re watched while clicking pause and trying it out on my images.  Now a believer in using LR along with PS and have really sped up my retouching time.  My session last week was probably edited at least 80% in LR  Was not impressed with LR presets as there was not a way to adjust opacity and that was becoming a deal breaker.  Then read that you could create a virtual copy, apply preset to it, and then open copy and original as layers in photoshop-problem solved.
