Lightroom 3 Giveaway!

It’s day II of “Lightroom Week” on my blog.  I’m celebrating the release (today!) of the LR3 plugin for my Wall Display Guides and as promised, here is my long awaited much procrastinated review/giveaway about Lightroom 3!

First of all, in case you missed yesterday’s post, Amazon still has LR3 at an insanely low price – a great time to take the plunge and treat yourself a bit early this Holiday season.

Secondly, for a MUCH better overview than I could possibly give about what’s new in LR3, you should probably refer to Julianne Kosts video here on Adobe TV.

What I wanted to share with you in this little video are just the features that I personally use every day that have made the most improvement in my workflow.  Later this week I will do a complete workflow video showing my process from LR into PS and what steps I do where, but this is just an overview of why I love LR3 and why I think it’s worth every penny of the upgrade price!

In the video I go over the print module capabilities VERY briefly and abstractly, for a much better idea of what makes the new “custom package” options so cool, please see the video demonstrating how the Wall Display Guides plugin works – that drag and drop functionality can be applied to ALL sorts of products such as album and card templates, storyboards – the possibilities are endless!

I also refer in the video to the blog post I wrote about the slideshow module and how I use it to do in person ordering.  I wanted to just link that here because I only touch on it briefly in the video but it’s one of the MAJOR improvements that facilitates in person ordering sessions. It also makes it super easy to create a video of the clients images set to music that you can sell as an add on or as in incentive to order!

Now, on to the part that you’ve been waiting for.. how to enter the giveaway!
