Making the Move from Aperture to Lightroom

Hey everyone! I’m just getting back from my Lightroom seminar in Colorado Springs yesterday. So first off, a big thanks to everyone that came out.

Some Cool Updates to Lightroom Mobile and the Web

Last week I got the chance to teach some Lightroom classes at Adobe Max and I figured I’d give you a quick report on some new stuff that Adobe announced for Lightroom Mobile and the web.
