may be this can be a catchall for tips.
i'm just getting started using LR 3.6 (which i already have):
any advantage to upgrading to LR4? (I have read Overrgard's review where he prefers 3.6...). i did try downloading LR4 from the Leica page, but was only able to get silverefx to download, LR stalled
export in LR is RGB: does sRGB or ProRGB matter? aren't we just looking for 8 bit greyscale?
finishing in SilverEfx:
what exactly is this doing, other than more of the same as LR, except for the various vignetting, border, toning effects?
final output for printing: Tiff?
