I'm a Lightroom fan. No surprise there if you've followed the blog for any length of time. As someone who's both hooked on photography and loves technology, Adobe Lightroom is one of the most powerful and well written applications I've had the privilege of using. If you haven't given it a try to see how it can give you a very valuable tool for your post production toolbox, here are a few things you might want to consider.
- You can download a free trial of Adobe Lightroom 3 from Adobe.com and try it for yourself without obligation. No, I do not get paid commission. I just think this is an incredible application and you owe it to yourself to at least try it out.
- You can find all of my Lightroom blog posts on this site by clicking here. Try flipping back to the earliest posts and work your way forward as they, for the most part, review Lightroom functionality in the order that would match most work flows.
- If you have tried Lightroom, but haven't "ponied up" yet, you can get an amazing price on the software by clicking here for a limited time.
- If you'd like the to own what I consider to be the most comprehensive resource available to help you get the most out of Lightroom 3, consider Scott Kelby's "The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers".
If you're STILL not sold, but do not have any post production software to help you catalog and edit your photographs, a friend shared another link with me this past week that I thought I'd pass along here as well. Cyberlink has developed an application which they are positioning against Lightroom and Apple's Aperture software called PhotoDirector 2011. I have not reviewed the software, and probably won't, but if you're drawn to free stuff, Cyberlink may have a deal you'd like to check out.
Until next week, keep click'n.
