Lightroom is fast becoming Adobe’s photo editing software of choice. Certainly speaking to people at this year’s Focus on Imaging, it’s one of the most widely used programs out there in the amateur/professional photography, image editing markets.
Lightroom is designed specifically with photography in mind, allowing users to manage large amounts of digital images. Effectively, it is one big database of images, allowing you to manage, organise and edit your images in once centralised place. From a photographer’s perspective, it focusses on following workflow steps, from library more through to editing and printing.
The good news is that you can pick yourself up a copy of Lightroom for pretty good value. There’s a host of special offers available on the Adobe website, take a look here.
And the better news is that when you do, you’ll be able to take advantage of the Nik Software Plug-in range.
Nik Software Plug-ins does exactly that – they ‘plug-in’ to Lightroom to give you more options when in editing and development stages. As well as the traditional settings available to Lightroom users, installing Nik Software will give you a host of other styles and features to play with.
The beauty with this is that something that could take considerable time to achieve using just Lightroom editing techniques – a certain style, noise reduction or specific colour effects for example – can be achieved in a matter of minutes.
The Nik Software range is vast. We’ve blogged extensively on their products over the last few months, so it’s well worth having a look back atour posts to learn more about the range. Just click here.
