Lightroom’s Lowest Price Of The Year

Happy black Friday everyone! If you’ve been holding off on getting Lightroom or know some one who has, now’s the time to pull the trigger because you can get it for $109.99. Last week I posted about Adobe’s $9.99 Cloud price, where you get Photoshop and Lightroom for $9.99 a month. It’s a great deal and if you’re reading this you probably already have Lightroom, so the upgrade ($75) is the cheapest way to...

Get Lightroom and Photoshop for $9.99

Adobe just announced an absolutely killer deal on Lightroom and Photoshop for everyone. See, back in September, they announced that Photoshop CS3 customers (and higher) could get Photoshop CC and Lightroom for $9.99 a month. Great deal right? But it wasn’t for everyone. Well now it is. If you’re new to all this stuff and didn’t own a previous version of Photoshop then you were outta luck. If you owned Photoshop CS2...

Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate Available

Adobe Labs just announced that the Lightroom 5.3 Release Candidate is out. The biggest thing you’ll find in this “dot” release is support for some new cameras (especially Sony’s A7’s and the new Nikon cameras). There’s a few bug fixes too, but none were anything that I ran into. I personally don’t usually install release candidate versions of the software, but if you’ve got one of those...

Lightroom Tip: The Color Sampler Tool

You’ll notice a few tools in Lightroom that have a Color Picker built right inside of them. One place is in the Split Toning panel in the Develop module. Also, the Graduated Filter, Adjustment Brush and Radial filter all have them so you can paint or target a specific part of the photo to have a color tint added to it. Here’s an example of the color picker (circled below). As you’d expect, when you click to see the...
