October 26th, 2010 - Presented by Helen Henry
Thanks to all of you for coming! It was a great turnout with many new faces. The survey card comments were mostly "excellent". So, you all must have enjoyed and got something out of it. We saw some great workflow time savers in Julieanne Kost’s video tutorials. How about that spot removal sync feature? I definitely need to master the use of that tool. The ways you can sort through your images are many and very easy to implement. With stars, key words, date, folders, smart folders, color highlights and many others you are able to organize all your photos and find them quickly and easily. I hate it when I have to spend an hour or so hunting for a particular picture; I know around what date I shot it but where did it go........... Now I can find it in a very short time.
Already organize your photos with Bridge? Lightroom 3 was created as a tool to be used like Bridge. However, it also has all the fancy photo improvements and cataloging fea tures which Bridge does not. It is meant to be used in conjunction with Photoshop and also allows for other plugins, such as Elements, Photomatixs, Nik etc.
Adobe and PSA provided fantastic door prizes which included a copy of Lightroom 3, a camera bag, luggage tags, and lens cleaning cloths. Many thanks to them! Also, thanks to my back up crew, especially, Jerry Henry, Dave Anderson, Sue Craft, Paul Craft and Nan Carder.
The price for Lightroom 3 from Adobe is $299.00 and an upgrade is $99.00. If you join PSA you can get a 15% discount for it as well as for many other software packages. If you decide to join PSA, please put either Nan Carder or myself down as a reference when you join. Thanks! Membership Link for PSA.
