No, this isn’t exactly new news. After all, Lightroom 4 was released earlier in the week when I first published this blog.
The new Lightroom 4, however, is amazing and light years ahead of our beloved 3.x release. Adobe really went all out on this major upgrade.

I have to report that these are two fabulous areas to photograph, and with the new skills that you will gain in these Lightroom 4 workshops, you will have a blast, either at our photo workshops right after or on your own.

Meanwhile, I have been preparing updates for our Lightroom blogs, redoing screen shots, etc., all in preparation for our upcoming photo workshops and east-of-the-Mississippi Lightroom 4 workshop(s).
And for our alumni, you’ll be happy to know I have updated Margo’s Tweaks. Continue reading
