    I currently do about 75% of my editing in LR. I try to save Photoshop for cloning, background stretching, etc. Although sometimes I just fall in love with a look from, say, the Summer Solstice collection and will do an entire batch in PS that way.

    95% of my editing is done in Lightroom. My computer runs so slowly while running Photoshop that I try to use it just for the major stuff. I am in love with all previous MCP Lightroom presets, really hoping to get my paws on these : )

    I currently only do about 25% of my editing in Lightroom (culling, raw conversion, basic wb and exposure corrections). I tend to spend waaay too much time in Photoshop. I already have Inspire (and LOVE it!) but would love to start editing more in Lightroom with these presets!

    I do 85-90 percent of my editing in Lightroom. I use Photoshop when I have extensive cloning to do. (Scanning older photos, for example.) I also use it when I have something that requires layers. I do communications for a school and take nearly all of the photos we use for marketing – nearly all candids. Most of my professional photography right now is part of this job. Sometimes I’ll want to swap a face for another with a better expression, etc.
