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 most often take pictures of my environment, I used to be beautiful landscapes back when I lived in the country and now I’m finding beauty in the everyday objects in a large city.

    It is a toss up at my house, I take a picture of almost everything I bake but when my kids come to visit well…………….After an hour or so they start to man & groan, “You want to take another picture Mom?” lol! I can’t help myself! My editing software is so old that I really need to update. The Lightroom Software looks like it would be just what I need!

    I love to take photos of my dogs and my roses. I agree with you on Photoshop, it’s too complicated for the average user. Normally I send my photos over to my BIL who is a Photoshop guru and let him do the touch up work. I’d rather be able to do my own photo work, and Lightroom would fit the bill perfectly!
