Ken Milburn writes, â€œLightroom is a great program in many ways, especially to create web galleries and proof sheets. However, it is just too slow for adding IPTC data, renaming, sorting, ingesting, initial editing, etc.
â€œPart of the slowness is that it renders the raw data on each image and wasnâ€™t designed for massive amounts of images like Photo Mechanic.
â€œTo me, Lightroom has the advantage of ACR for image processing at the expense of being simple and fast. Photo Mechanic is the simple and fast program that I need for all the front-end of my digital image workflow.â€
