Confessions of a Lightroom Addict

I thought I’d share some of my Lightroom confessions in the hopes that I would either a) get a quick laugh from you as you realize you’re not the only one that does something odd in Lightroom or, b) undermine my professionalism and credibility by showing you some of the silly things I do. Make sure you leave a comment here if you have your own confession or just want to second your favorite of mine. Here goes: 1. Whenever...

It's Back! LR 1.4 (Take two!)

Yep, the Lightroom 1.4 update is back again. If you recall from some posts a few weeks ago, Adobe released the 1.4 update and then recalled it.

Today kicks off Photoshop World and not only is Adobe going to demo the 2.0 beta but they’re letting everyone have it and download it for free.

Preset Monday & Photoshop World Week

Happy Monday! The preset info is below but here’s some quick Photoshop World info as well. This week is Photoshop World in Orlando, FL. It’s always nice when I can drive to the conference on Monday and back again on Friday. Plus, I’m really excited as my wife and kids will probably make it over for a day or two. Believe it or not, my kids have never seen me teach. Anyway, here’s a recap of what I’ll be...
