I am sure I am not the first one to ask you this, but WHY can't you make a normal retouching tool in Lightoom? Your clone tool is extremely inconvenient, and it got a lot worse in LR4 as now it doesn't even show you the result until you exit it, so you have to go back and forth trying to correct some detail, it doesn't let you clone above what you have done, and when you try to do it anyway dragging the circle to the place you need, you can't correct it afterwards as LR puts the smaller circle behind all the rest and you have to move everything to make a correction. It takes a ton of time and it's really irritating. It's like aperture creators are paying you to keep it this awful because other than this I would never think of switching from LR to aperture. Anyway, is there some reason for not having a normal simple retouching tool in LR, and if not, maybe you can think of making it? It's really confusing that an application with so many advanced features doesn't have a simple one.
