Fun with Lightroom!

So who here has heard of Adobe Lightroom? I see references to it on different blogs and photography sites I frequent. It's a little pricier than the Photoshop Elements I'm using so I haven't seriously considered buying it.

However, today MckMama had a great tutorial on how to create a preset that makes photos look aged and sorta rough. I downloaded the free trial of Lightroom and must say I've been having lots of fun!



I'm liking this. A lot.

Uh...honey...I know my birthday is 8 months away...but do you think, maybe...?

Hi Leigh,
I just saw you on MckMama's blog frog community. I'm the one with the same camera and lens as you. :)
Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! I just love your blog header.
I am loving lightroom and hopefully I can buy it when the free trial is up. :)
