Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Giveaway

In the past six months, I have fallen in love with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3

I posted about it here when I first purchased it.  And since then, I use it

I could not imagine my life without it!

How else could I make Chocolate Coconut Cashew Butter jump off the page

Or braids look so groovy

Or Nutella & Peanut Butter Graham Bars look as sinful on the screen as they actually are in person

Or boats look artsy

Or transport you with me to my local farmers market and make you feel like you’re right there, too.

Or make you want to reach in and devour a Magic Eight Bar?

I use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 to help bring back in what my eye actually saw but that sometimes doesn’t always translate in photography.

I love it, and I can’t wait for one lucky person to win a copy of it, too!

  2. i’d love to win this because there is not a lot of natural light in my house, so my blog photos tend to be shadowy. i don’t like using a flash because it looks harsh. i love the way obects in your photos are totally bathed in light, so gorgeous.

  5. I’d love to win Adobe Photoshop because it’ll help me transform my ordinary, standard pictures into beautiful, colorful works of art. Honestly, I’m still new to photography, and I think that having Photoshop will encourage me to work for better shots.

  6. My biggest challenge is making my photos look eye catching.

  11. This is exactly what I need to get back into photography :) I recently got a DSLR but haven’t been able to afford Photoshop. I would definitely love to win this.

  12. I’m just learning about photography. I can tell when a photograph is “good”, but I’m learning how to use all the elements of a photograph to take a good picture. I still don’t think I’ve taken a good one yet, but I’m working on it! I would use Lightroom to enhance lighting and capture accurate color.

  13. I already follow you on FaceBook! :)

  14. I have a hard time with the background. I either forget about it until it’s too late, or it doesn’t set apart whatever I’m photographing as well as I thought.

  15. I have no idea how to use any programs for photography and would love to learn. I don’t even know how to use photoshop! LOL! I am not sure how to utilize light to my advantage when taking photos … all I know is that food looks better in natural daylight, and people look better at dusk. I would love to experiment with lightroom and learn how to use it.

  16. Im a photographer/artist and getting this would really help me elevate my photos so i can earn some much needed extra cash selling them and doing something i love!

  17. Thanks for this awesome giveaway Averie! There’s nothing better than to spruce up some of my dull photos using Lightroom. I’ve test driven the 30-day trial before, and loved how easy, fast and incredible the whole photo-editing process took :)

  18. I would love to win this! Unfortunately I have to cook and take a lot of pictures after work when the lighting isn’t ideal, so this would be perfect!

  19. Tell me why you want to win this? TO IMPROVE MY BLOG PHOTOS!

    What your biggest challenges are with photography? LIGHTING!

    What special photography projects you will use Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 with? FOOD PHOTOS AND CAPTURING MY KIDS AT PLAY!

  20. i follow and i tweet!! YAY!!

  21. i would love this because i dont have any editing program for my photos :) i would also love to play around and take beautiful pictures of my daughter

  22. my biggest challenge is lighting! i don’t have alot of windows in my house that give me the light i need in the kitchen.

  23. i tweeted and follow both

  24. What a great giveaway! I would love to use lightroom 3 especially to help me with lighting issues. A lot of times I find I cook and take pictures long after dark and a lot of times have issues making those pictures look good or ‘natural’. I think lightroom could work wonders in helping with this!!

  25. As a beginning photographer, I’m facing a lot of challenges!! The one that’s most frustrating to me, however, is lighting, as many of the other posters have stated. I would use Lightroom 3 to help me continue my passion for photography. I might be nice and share it with my boyfriend, who’s a great photographer. :)

  26. I’m a recent graduate and too poor to afford a fancy new camera, but I think this would seriously help with my project of documenting my near-future move to the coast and start of a new life :)

  27. Oh my gosh, this would be so helpful for AP Studio Art next year! My biggest challenge is lighting. I love taking indoor photos, but it’s always overcast here and we don’t have as many lamps as I’d like.

  28. I followed you on twitter and tweeted.

  29. I need help with lighting and post picture editing is a must! This would be great to use as I start my own yoga business!

  31. I would love to have Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 because I am always taking pictures of all the delicious foods I make (and a good amount of them are your recipes!) and the pictures turn out horrible due to the lighting. I would love to have professional looking photos to add to my facebook page!

  32. I would love to use this to play around with my photos and enhance their quality

  33. What an amazing giveaway Averie! I would LOVE the opportunity to have actual photo editing software. All I use now is the iPhoto that came on my Mac and although it’s better than nothing, I know there is so much more out there!

    I just have to say that I love being able to see you grow in your photography skills! You are getting to be quite the pro missy! ;) That boat pic is beyond gorgeous!

  34. I already follow you on Twitter, no I follow Adobe, and I just tweeted!

  35. I love photography and I think this would help me enjoy it even more!!

  36. Ooh I would love to have this software. I blog menus for my personal chef business. The biggest weakness is I don’t have photos! I need to start posting pics of my food, but the pics I take never look as fantastic as the food so I get frustrated and give up.

    With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 I think I could make photos I love, and then have more motivation to take more photos! Win win!

  37. I would use Lightroom to improve my food photography! I always seem to have a problem getting the lighting justttt so.

  38. I think it was yesterday that I “liked” your page on Facebook. I would use Lightroom for my food photography for my blog. That seems to be what I’m taking pictures of mostly lately, but I’d also love it for my travel photography and pet photography. I have heard wonderful things about lightroom.

  39. I’ve taken many photography courses throughout high school and college and have even had a art show showcasing my work. But I always find that there is more and more to learn and experiment with in photography and want to learn more and more!

  40. My blog is currently in the very early phases, and I’d like to change that; I think Lightroom is exactly what I need to bring it to the next stage.
