Adobe Lightroom

Nikon-buddy Jeff Whatcott gave me a quick demonstration of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom when I was in Boston last week. Lightroom was clearly a winner application, so I was pleasantly surprised when Jeff hooked me up with a copy of Lightroom before I returned to Belgium on Friday evening. Although Jeff works for Acquia now, he continues to evangelize Adobe's products. ;-)

I spent a couple hours dabbling with Lightroom this morning, and I'm already in love with it. It is a lot easier than Photoshop CS which I've been struggling to master for years. Lightroom's sidebar widgets and workflow are simple yet powerful, and the non-destructive image editing and the smart saving please the engineer in me. Thanks Jeff!
