    With facial recognition, easier editing tools like the great new filter brush, and better performance from using the GPU, the latest edition of Lightroom should appeal to former users of Aperture who might not be as well served by Photos for OS X.

    Pros

    • Improved performance due to GPU interaction.
    • New filter brush.
    • Built-in HDR and panorama merge features.
    • Still a standalone product for customers who don't want a Creative Cloud subscription.

    Cons

    • Older computers will see minimal or no performance increases, depending on the hardware.
    • It would be nice to see People more specifically included in searches and smart collections.
