If anyone asks me my favorite editing software for all of my photos, without hesitation I say Lightroom.  No question.  I’ve never been a photoshop gal because of the learning curve.  Lightroom is so easy to use, I was so excited to learn that I figured it out in just minutes. (I am not tech savvy at all)

It sure makes my job easy as a food blogger being able to touch up my photos ever so slightly to get just what I am looking for.

There are so many before and after pictures I can show you, but this is one I did just last week when I was photographing my Double Chocolate Butterfinger Cake.  We had some friends over and their dog was outside my window watching my cake, lol!  I snapped a photo and as you can see on the left, it was dark and gray.  With just a few touch ups from Lightroom you get the picture on the right.  Love!!
