If ACR is contained as part of Photoshop, then why use LR? Isn't that the same as ACR? I do normally shoot RAW.
I use C1 and PS5, using rather basic processing techniques to be completely forthcoming.
Is there an advantage to using LR? Can I use it as my complete RAW processor, post processor, and printing platform?
What is the best guide to the use of LR4? I have been looking at these at Amazon:
The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Book for Digital Photographers
Lightroom 4: Streamlining Your Digital Photography Process by Nat Coalson
Opinions or better recommendations?
