Lightroom Version 3 Improved Performance

I've recently purchased the upgrade to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 and have been extremely impressed by the performance improvements. On Lightroom 2.7 my catalog with 85,000 photos was very slow to open and even slower to find/filter images even on a PC running Windows Vista 64 with quad core processor and 8Gb of Ram.

Lightroom 3 resolves this and is almost instant to filter photos to various slice and dice criteria.

The show received rave reviews - one here
A few quotes from Doug:
"On to Electricity, Fantastic singing and incredible dancing that I have only ever seen once before and that was in the West End, this earned Billy a well deserved Standing Ovation which you could see from his face he was loving every minute of it, and it did last that long.
The finale was Brilliant with all cast getting cheers and applause and more standing ovations for Billy and the whole Cast.
A big well done to the Director,Crew,choreographers and everyone else involved, Great Show, cant Wait for the next one."

Photos of the show will be available at the cast party.
