Ready to take your photography to the next level?  Well today Adobe announced an update to it’s well respected and very popular photo processing program – Lightroom.  This edition, Lightroom 5, builds upon the platform which photographers have found so helpful in the past.  I currently have and use Lightroom 4 and will surely update to Lightroom 5.

If you are not acquainted with Lightroom I suggest you look into it.  There are lots of reviews out there so I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here.  Just know that Lightroom is a very versatile, powerful, and helpful program for the photographer.  Here is a list of some of the very helpful features.

  • Directly import photos into your computer.
  • Arrange and catalog your photos for easy location
  • Tag photos with keywords, copyright info, etc.
  • Professional level editing features / “non destructive” leaving the original image intact. (I truly love the way it adjusts shadows)
  • Print photo books from selected photos / with your own added text
  • Produce “slideshows” from selected photos, adding background music
  • Print photos directly from Lightroom
  • Create html or flash photo galleries galleries / export to websites

In the newest Lightroom 5 you will find a variety of new / improved features.

  • Upright – automatically corrects skewed lines / horizons / etc.
  • Radial Gradient – create off center vignettes or multiple vignette effects
  • Smart Previews – work with smaller collections of photos offsite / they will sync when brought back to your main work station
  • Video Slide Shows – combine still images, video clips, and music in creative HD videos that can be viewed on almost any computer or device.

Lightroom 5 is available now.  Full price is $149.00.  Upgrades go for $79.00

Improve Your Post-Processing …….. And Enjoy The Adventure!
