If you haven’t guessed from my tutorials and classes, I love Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
This software is a vital tool for my post processing and managing the massive amount of digital assets that is a side effect of photographer these days.
I am very excited to announce that it is official…
The new Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 software helps you create amazing images that inspire, inform, and delight. Bring out the best in every shot with powerfully simple one-click adjustments and a full range of cutting-edge advanced controls. Craft elegant photo books and effortlessly share your best shots on social networks, in web galleries, and more. Perfect your images, organize all your photographs, and share your vision—all in one fast, intuitive application.
I’ve already downloaded my copy and am exploring all these great upgrade features for myself.
Major Lightroom 4 features
