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!!

    It’s a tossup between my son and my animals. Generally it’s a combination of the 2, but I try to make it more of a point to get more baby photos.

    I love taking pictures of my family and friends! There is nothing greater than filling frames and scrapbooks with your most memorable moments. I thoroughly enjoy looking around at all of the rooms in my house and just remembering each and every captured moment. If nothing else, it makes my home feel cozy and it puts a smile on my face!

    I love taking pictures of anything and everything. My favorite ones that I’ve taken are generally of my city, but my favorite ones that other people take are of people. I wish I had a talent for photographing people!

    Food! But only because I am a food writer. Otherwise, likely it would be my family.

    I would be forever indebted to you because my photos are shoddy, and this would, I hope, teach me how to edit them properly.

    I TRY to take pictures of my kids, but they are in toddler mode so they all turn out blurry. I’d love some photo editing software to perfect the pictures I am able to get.

    Stacey says:

    I have been wanting to try lightroom for ages, but never know if I should take the plunge. I travel a lot and love to take travel photos but with the elements of people (both locals and the people that I travel with) I love good scenery shots but having a person in it gives it a whole new dimension and makes it more personal. Somthing I have started doing after holidays is putting together a video photo montage that just somes up the holiday and makes you remember the good moments.
