I’m Going To Be On TV

Hey everyone. First off, a big thanks to all of you that came out to my Lightroom seminar in LA yesterday. I had a blast. Great crowd, great vibe and we had a really good time. I’m actually still in LA and really excited to be appearing on the Home and Family show today. I actually appeared on the show a little over a year ago (hence the photo above) and was asked back since I was in town teaching Lightroom. It’s a show on...

3 Uses For the Radial Filter from DPS

What do you do when you’re in Richmond, VA and are busy getting ready to teach your Lightroom seminar the next day? You point to some one else’s post I just came across a post on Digital Photograph School and wanted to share it. Ever since it came out I’ve thought the Radial Filter was one of the coolest tools to hit Lightroom, and this post shows a few ways to use it. Here’s the link to the full post by John...

Happy (kinda) 8th Birthday Lightroom!

Hey everyone. We’re taking a quick break today from our regularly schedule “I’m Giving Up Photoshop” post for a quick birthday wish for the very program we’re on this site for. Yep, it’s Lightroom’s birthday (well, kinda). On January 9th, 2006 Adobe launched the first beta for Lightroom. When I first saw the date I had to look twice because there is absolutely no way that it was 8 years ago....

Last Chance For the $9.99 Lightroom/Photoshop Bundle

I know from my Lightroom seminars that more and more of you are on the Creative Cloud. A year ago, I’d take informal polls during the seminars and MAYBE 5% of the audience would raise their hand that they were on the Creative Cloud version of Lightroom and Photoshop. Last week at my Jacksonville seminar, it was more like 25-30% of the room. So it’s definitely catching on. And I think the $9.99 deal from Adobe has been huge...

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...
