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!

  3. i follow you on twitter and tweeted the giveaway

  4. oh, Averie, you KNOW I want this!! :D

    my biggest challenges continue to be white balance and lighting. I cannot always use natural light, and I am still learning how to use my lowel egos (LOVE those!) and white boards. this wouldn’t help with that, but as you know I “edit” with iPhoto only right now. ;)

    GREAT giveaway, thanks for the opportunity!

  6. I would love to win because I don’t edit my photos and would love to learn how!

  7. I’m a fan of yours on facebook

  8. I putting my Web site together as well as creating a book to encourage people to eat raw, living foods in pursuit of an excellent lifestyle. As a raw chef, I would love to present outstanding photos as a part of this!

  9. I would love love love to win this! What an awesome giveaway. I’d use it for the pictures on my blog, and for the pictures I take of my kids. I love making them the best they can be :) I think my biggest issue is setting my iso properly. Sometimes my colors get washed out because my iso is set wrong. It’s something I really have to work on.

  10. Oh la la! What a seriously awesome giveaway!
    I just started taking photos not too long ago and it’s quickly become a hobby. So much fun! I would love to use lightroom to edit/play around with my photos.

  11. The lighting in my condo is terrible! And I don’t have much patience for photography. I want SO bad to improve my photos on my blog!!

  12. I would LOVE to win this because I am LAME when it comes to editing photos. Need to work on that..hmm!! I’d ADORE this!!!

  13. I would like to win because I recently picked up photography as hobby and have been loving it thus far! This software would come in handy & help me take my photography further.

  14. I know follow you both on twitter and tweeted about the giveaway!

  15. I would like Lightroom so I can take the most beautiful photos possible of my family, food and friends. I may even delve into professional photography (which I used to do). I always felt it difficult to compete since I have never owned a photoshop software of any kind. It’s time for me to step into the 21st century!

  16. My biggest challenge is knowing from which angle to take certain pictures… I want to get the best lighting possible, but it’s sometimes difficult to determine how to do so!

  17. My biggest problem/challenge with photography is lighting! I have bought that cowboy studio kit from your amazon store and that helps sometimes a little bit. I do all kinds of food gymnastics trying to snatch up the slivers of natural light that appear in upstate ny…

  18. I would love to finally own a professional program to edit my photos! So far, iPhoto or Picassa have been the only things I’ve used, and they do nothing compared to the beautiful photographs I see on all the blogs!!

  19. I just moved to Baton Rouge, Louisiana from Boston and I would love to document my culinary adventures through a blog! Problem is my camera sucks and my iphoto doesn’t cut it, I could never afford this product but it would really help!

  20. I would love to upgrade!!!! I currently use the older version on my Mac for my photography along with CS5 and I’m looking to get a new version of lightroom for my laptop so I can do some edits on the go. My biggest challenges with photography happen when I’m in a hurry and I forget to check my exposure and histograms on my camera. Lightroom saves me a** in those situations!
    I’m loving your photography by the way. It’s a wonderful passion to have! I started a long time ago and I’m still enjoying it so much. It can be a really expensive love

  24. That’s a pretty bad a– giveaway! Very cool. I would love to win that because the only camera I have right now is the one on my phone. It’s nice, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Some software would def help!

  25. Incredible giveaway!! thanks Averie!! I am recently into photography and am enjoying the freedom it gives me- I love finding the ‘creativity’ in a simple scene that, without camera in hand, I would have just walked right by. Biggest obstacle – getting my 8 month old nephew to stay still during his photo sessions!!

  26. I would love to win this! I’ve recently begun to edit my photos and using Lightroom would make an incredible difference in the photo editing!!

  27. I already like you on facebook!

  28. I would love this software because my new hobby is photographing my cats. I am starting Photography classes next year in 9th grade (holy crap I am going to high school, that is scary), and I am going to need Photoshop software for it. I would love to use it to get some striking photos of My kitten Mo’s markings on his head, they are breathtaking!

  29. oh man, you are hooking. us. up. lately! what an awesome giveaway.
    i would love lightroom so that i can have a more streamlined, “batch” processing program versus opening each up in photoshop whenever i want to make a minor tweak. whether it’s simple photos for the blog or ones i’ve done for business, i think that is definitely where lightroom has an advantage!

  30. I followed both on twitter! And tweeted!

  31. I would really love to win this! I am trying to learn more about photography and editing pictures for my blog and I just know that this will help me immensely!

  35. I did all the twitter stuff! :)

  36. I would LOVE to win this prize because I currently don’t use any program like the sort on my PC. I’m a budding photographer and would be so lucky to start off on a good foot! My biggest challenge is with lighting, and if I won this prize, I would use it to really bring to life the pictures that I take now!

  37. I follow you on FB! :)

  41. Now this is a photo-op I can’t miss! I am so eager to try Adobe Lightroom 3 I can hardly contain myself. I love taking photographs on all of my hiking trips and outdoor adventures. It would be so much fun to enhance the photos with AL3 and share them with my friends and relatives all over the world. My biggest challenge, especially while out on the boat, is dealing with glare from the sun on the water. Sometimes my shots are completely ruined by too much light!

  42. I love photoshop products. I used to have elements but my computer crashed :( Anyway…. I would love to get back into editting my photos. I hate using my flash b/c it makes everything too bright. With the Lightroom I would be able to edit and alter the lighting until my heart’s content!

  43. I am a facebook fan!
