    I have Lightroom 5 (not the subscribed version). I can speak from experience - it's great, especially for beginners (not saying you are). It's very easy to use, and allows you to do a lot of things to your images (while still being easy to use). It's good for both producing simple clean images or creative artsy ones. Lightroom also allows you to do non-destructive editing to your images, meaning however bad you messed up (not saying you will), the originals are kept intact. I used it for many years before slowly transitioning to Adobe Photoshop CS, which is a lot more powerful, but not as simple and takes a lot of learning.

    Not sure if you can try it out before committing to a plan. If you can, I'd say go for it. Or, if you're up for it, watch some youtube videos to get more ideas how it works, it will be easier to make decisions then.

    Would love to hear others' opinions too, see if there's any cheaper or better alternatives.

    +1 for Lightroom. Haven't ventured into full Photoshop yet.

    I started my subscription to Lightroom about three weeks ago. I like it as there is a ton of support, both from Adobe and others. I have found it easy to use. As MA says, you can get a trial for one month to give it a go and help decide if you want to subscribe. It is well worth it, I'd get into LR.

    Sweet. Thx peeps.

    I am a rank amateur and yes I have and will continue to stuff up.....that's the fun of it

    I have a trial of Lightroom for Android on my phone. So far it's pretty good.

    I have been using the very basic tools of Adobe Photoshop Essentials, but something easier will be a god send
