Lightroom 5 Giveaway

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.

Lightroom is offering one Picky Palate reader Lightroom 5, so you can edit your photos beautifully!  Here’s a little information of what Lightroom 5 offers:

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!!

    I love to take photos of our daughter. It’s important to me to have photographs of special moments in her life to share with her when she’s older!

    p.s. I can’t figure out PhotoShop either. I’ve been trying for months & I just can’t get the hang of it! I’d love to try Lightroom, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed…Thanks for the chance!

    I would love to say I mostly take photos of my two children, but that would be a lie. Flowers are my thing. I love everything about them. How delicate and beautiful they are. I’m into shooting up-close (macro) I love to show everyone things they don’t normally look at. But I do take lots of photos of my kiddos and my 3 American Bulldogs. Would love to win this, I don’t have an editing program and most of my photos are SOOC (Straight out of camera). Thank you for the chance to win this!!!
