Adobe Lightroom 4 Software Giveaway!

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 Software is a “must have” in my work-flow.

It’s a very simple, easy to use, software.

It’s the greatest tool available for organizing and streamlining photos.

It allows you to make simple edits to digital files – like lightening up shadow areas and/or toning down highlights.

(And yes, it’s easy to use with Photoshop if you’re so inclined.)

How do I use Lightroom?

I import my photos directly from my flash card to Lightroom.

Lightroom allows me to sort photos by event, by date, by keywords – whatever way I want.

I make quick, minor, edits to photos when they need it.

For instance, I can quickly straighten a slightly “off” horizon line, tone down a too-bright highlight, or lighten up shadow areas.

In addition, there are a lot of free presets available online for Lightroom.

Lightroom presets can give a quick “look” to your photos.

With presets you can press one button to convert your photo to black and white, or another for an “antique” look, or yet another for a highly saturated look.

If you’ve never used Lightroom before, you’ll be amazed at what a big difference very light editing can make to your images.

If you’re new to digital photography and the idea of photo software is intimidating, let me assure you this is easy stuff!

I’m giving away one copy of Lightroom.

To be entered to win, just leave a comment below.

P.S.  Entries are still open on yesterday’s post if you’re interested in possibly winning a photography/travel vest.

    I love learning more about photography through your tips…it’s much easier to understand.

    I have been stumbling along with a MS photo editor which is lame. I was using Picnik but they shut down! I would love a copy of Lightroom.

    So glad the blog pages are finally working…they look wonderful.

    I have to admit I hadn’t thought much about working with Lightroom, but you changed all that when you spoke of toning down harsh highlights and lightening up dark shadows. Put my name in the hat, please!!

  19. Jan Karlo Camero

    Lightroom really is a must have if you want to take photography seriously. It streamlines your workflow and you can focus on your creative work. The UI is so easy to understand and it feels like Adobe is spoiling us too much (not that Im complaining).

    I want this .. or rather, I need LIGHTROOM 😀

    Big thanks! I’ve tried several photo editing and managing softwares, but I never found one really good. Then I tried Photoshop CS series, Lightroom and also Elements. They are completely different: more simples and more effective. Adobe is the leader of photo editing software, and I’d like to win one of this great programs for enhance and organize my big photo collection.
