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.

  1. Awesome giveaway! My biggest challenge is forcing myself to take time to set up a great shot… I rarely do it, but it makes such a difference!

  2. I used to spend a lot of time on photography but haven’t been doing much for years. I have a degree in photography and used to process my own film and photos. Now with the digital age I am so behind in editing. I have a great camera and a brand new computer that dh bought to help me get back into photography. In the past I just used basic free programs but have the background to be able to do so much more! I have been hoping to buy this software but it hasn’t happened yet. My biggest challenge is everything because I have been using such limited programs. I want better quality pictures all around; family, friends, and fine art!

  3. My issue is that I don’t like to carry a big camera – so I have a small little point and shoot…I know I could get better photo’s with a “real” camera…but hauling it around seems like it would be so much trouble!

  4. I’ve always loved photos and admired those who can take a photo and make something as simple as a leaf on a tree look artistic! July last year I swapped my point and shoot camera to a Canon EOS550D and I’ve been experimenting on and off with it (mostly taking pictures of my husband and his triathlon club competing) but the pictures just don’t pop out. My biggest challenge is learning how to use the correct aperture and using natural light to bring out the vibrancy of the picture. Now that I have more time on my hands (I’m on maternity leave for a year) I’m embarking on a new project: Capturing “daily snaps” of my new born baby when s/he arrives for the first year. I want my pictures to pop out likes yours, I want to be able to play with the colours and effects and most of all I want to go “wow” and I want my family and friends to go “wow”. I visit your blog daily just to drool over your photos and seeing the improvement in your photography skills is just amazing. Winning Photoshop Lightroom 3 would certainly help me with my project “daily snaps” in creating a beautiful coffee table book of my beautiful baby.

  5. Actually I love taking photos of my kids and would love the opportunity to use a product like this one to change up some of the already wonderful kiddo photos that I have. I am a newbie to these types of programs, but enjoy learning new things and challenging myself! This looks like it could be very addictive and fun! Thanks.

  6. I tweeted and already follow!

  7. I already like you on facebook.

  8. I would LOVE to win this because I am wanting to start my own healthy food blog. My biggest challenge with photography is making my images stand out and be impactful, and with Lightroom 3 I could achieve this!

  9. I would love to win this to tinker with my family photos. Though it’s a good one, I always feel as though my camera doesn’t capture things exactly as they appear in person and it’s quite frustrating – hopefully, the program can help with that. Great giveaway!

  10. I follow you on Twitter and have tweeted. :)

  11. I have been debating about dropping the cash to purchase this software for awhile now…winning it would make my decision way easier!! As a budding photographer, I would love to be set up with the programs necessary to make good photos better (once I get to the point of taking good photos)!

  12. Followed and tweeted!

  13. Facebook liked!

  14. I want to win this because I just got a DSLR & it’d be perfect! I twitter follow + tweeted ya :)

  15. I would love to win this and give it to my amazing dad. He’s finishing up his first book (it’s a guidebook to an amazing town in Tuscany, so it’s loaded with pictures) and has some last photo editing to do. He’s also working on revamping his website, and wants to add more slideshows. Annnd he’s in the process of launching the American Grappa Society and building a website for that. He’s mentioned many times that he wishes he had better editing software, but just can’t find the money in the budget. This would be a huge, huge, boon for him.

  16. I just tweeted, too. (@GreenJunkieLiv)

  17. My camera broke last week and what i’m working with currently (my husband’s old point and shoot from college) is just so awful… it leaves a weird lighting tint on the photos… i’m certain lightroom could make this camera useful for my blog while I save up for a REAL camera. eep!

  18. tweeted/followed/shenanigans accomplished =)

  19. already like ya on facebook! =)

  20. I would LOVE to win this because I’m getting a DSLR and I’ve seen what it can do for photos!

  21. I’m really interested in improving my photography skills. IN the past year, I’ve taken two classes at a local photography school/store. My house has awful natural light and I would love to enhance my photos.

  22. Hi Averie! Been wanting to get Lightroom so that I can shoot tethered to my laptop. That would be incredible – so that I can see what my photos look like on a screen larger than the one on my camera :)

    Btw – less than 2 months till Boulder! *excited dance*

  23. My name is Erin Thomas and i am 15 years old. i have been reading your blog for the last few months because i love finding new gluten free recipes (i have been gluten-free for around six months)
    I would love having Adobe photoshop lightroom 3 because i take pictures where ever i go and i love to edit them (i make a lot of movies too). My dream is to be a fashion photographer or a cinematographer because i love to edit. Some times i will have photo shoots with my friends and ill make them dress up :) then i can edit them.. and they look really good…but they would look even better if i had a real photo editing program.
    well thanks for the great recipes:)

  24. I would just love to win this photo editing software. Photography is easily one of my biggest passions, but without editing it is hard to really capture some of the beauty that gets lost through a computer screen. It would be so much fun to amp up my blog with the help of the software. I also ‘liked’ your facebook page!

  25. Ever since I took photography in high school (many years ago), I’ve been obsessed with it. I ALWAYS take the time to edit my photos but currently the only program that I have is iPhoto. Lightroom would be the ideal stepping stone towards furthering my photography goals.
