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!

  1. I follow you and now I’m following lightroom on Twitter :)

  2. I “Like” Veggies and Yoga on Facebook!

  3. Wow, this is awesome! I now take all of the photos for our company, so there’s a lot of pressure to not only take good shots, but fix them when I screw up :) I’ve been lusting after Lightroom since you and other bloggers started posting tutorials, so I’d love the chance to get this.

  4. I tweeted and followed (I’m @kwidrick)

  5. And I liked you all on Facebook! Thanks for the opportunity :)

  6. My biggest photography challenge right now is learning how to use my new camera!! Photoshop would definitely help me in creating the best photos possible :-)

  7. Oh I want!!!

    I mainly to pet/animal photography so thats what I would be using it for.

  8. My biggest photography challenge would probably be trying to get the right angles. I, unfortunately, do not yet have a DSLR, so I have to use as many of the options as I can with my little point and shoot. I’ve gotten pretty decent at using the different settings, but I really want to get better at positioning my images. I’ve never used lightroom, but I’ve heard it’s phenomenal and it’s been on my “to-buy” list for whenever I run into some extra $$$.

    Your pictures are always so beautiful, which makes me hopeful that I’d be able to improve mine as well! Thanks for the opportunity, Averie!

  9. Already follow YOU on Twitter, just followed Lightroom, AND tweeted (via @SweetToothCourt) :)

  10. I also already Facebook liked you, so I went ahead and Stumbled ;)

  11. What an amazing giveaway!! I want this is such a bad way! Let’s see…challenges with photography: well, currently my stone age computer (but, am hoping to get that remedied soon). Another is lighting. I strive to only use natural light whenever possible, but sometimes adequate light just doesn’t happen. And being that I haven’t located that “money tree” yet for funding my love and passion of photography I will have to call that a challenge as well. ;-)
    I would use Lightroom 3 for the photoshoots I have coming up this month to present the families with the best photos possible.
    Thanks so much for offering your readers a kick-butt giveaway!

  12. My biggest photography challenge is lighting. We don’t have nearly enough natural light in our house!

  13. One of my biggest challenges with photography is lighting! The lighting in my apartment is terrible, so I always have to turn my ISO way up. Then I get a lot of noise:( I hope that in Lightroom, I can get rid of some of that noise, or at least make them a little sharper!

  14. My biggest problem is getting correct lighting. Most of my shots are too dark. I would love to be able to correct my shots using Lightroom 3 to really match my vision! What an awesome giveaway!

  15. I follow you both on twitter and I tweeted the awesome giveaway! @photohealthnut

  16. I Liked you on Facebook!!

  17. I have a galley kitchen and it makes taking photos of food challenging. And the light hits my townhouse in a strange way; and it’s never at the time I’m hope to take great photos! This would be amazing to try!

  18. I have always been a major fan of the Adobe products (has Photoshop CS & CS2 on previous computers). In the past, I tried to use them for altering/editing actual drawings I would produce, but I no longer dedicate much time to the pencil. Nowadays, I am photographing everything (especially for the blog), but I lack funds for superior software and a nicer camera. I have a point&shoot, but I would love to one day upgrade to a DSLR, it’s just not going to happen any time soon. I am becoming better at angling and optimizing the features on my Sony camera, but I could use a little help and I think the Lightroom software would be perfect!

    I must admit, I found your blog from other Twitter members, but the examples of photos you provided are astoundingly beautiful! I liked your page on FB, followed you & Adobe on Twitter, and tweeted the contest. Thanks! :D

  19. Just tweeted! @nickijayslife

  20. I would love to try Lightroom! As a newbie photographer, it can be frustrating to feel like my pictures aren’t up to snuff with some of the ones I see on blogs. I think having the ability to make some slight adjustments and enhancements with Lightroom would boost my confidence a bit in my pictures!

  21. I liked you on Facebook! :)

  22. I followed you on Twitter! :)

  23. I would love to win a copy of Lightroom to help enhance the pictures I take of my 4yo. He’s very photogenic, but hard to catch!

  24. I’d love love to win adobe Lightroom.. I’ve heard so many photographers rave about it..

    I’d use it to make my bloggie pictures a lot more inviting


    I’d use it to make my own professional modeling pictures even better, sometimes I likt to tweek them a little bit before putting them in my portfolio..

  25. I follow you on twitter and tweeted!

  26. I would love to win this because I am in the process of planning my wedding and it would really help for all of the graphics and pictures that I am looking to create myself! :)

  27. i liked you on facebook!

  28. What a great giveaway Averie!! My issue with photography right now is finding a space where I can take pictures and set up a nice background for some density. My apt is tiny winy and we don’t have anywhere to put a table that has much lighting. It’s a work in progress but this would be awesome :)

    And of course your pictures have been looking amazing!! You can tell a difference 100% between the new camera you have and the one you used while taking pics in your last condo. A++!

  29. Following you both on Twitter and I tweeted! :)

  31. I am trying to figure out if I will be able to open my own photography business ( I have SO MUCH to learn but it is a dream of mine) because I am having a hard time finding employment. This would help me become better at learning all that I can at taking better pictures! : )

  32. What an amazing giveaway! I’d love to win to work on editing food and vacation photos – especially the vacation photos, when someone else takes the picture and it seems like something is always off (lighting, shadows, flash) taking a little something away from an otherwise awesome shot!

  33. I like you on FB!

  34. oh my goodness! i’d love to win the lighroom 3! my biggest issue is the lack of natural light in our condo, so the pictures never reflects the real colors or intensity :( documenting different aspects of our life as a family is very important to me and more enjoyable with beautiful pics!!

  35. Great giveaway! I would use Lightroom to enhance the photos I take for my fashion blog and as an aspiring (self taught) photographer. Lightroom would compliment the Adobe CS4 software I already have, specifically Photoshop. I tweeted the giveaway and followed/Stumbled it!!/ChristaMarzan/status/83178867338117120

  36. I would love to win this and give it to my fiance. He’s a big photography buff and definitely needs a good photo editing program.

  37. I would love, love, LOVE to win a copy of this program. As a budding artist and lover of photographer, this would be a brilliant add on to my editing suite. I just started taking some high fashion editorial pictures and to grow from a semi professional photographer to a strong professional one, I think this would absolutely help transform the final look my work. My biggest challenge as a struggling artist has been to be able to afford proper lights and some equipment to have pictures turn out quite well.
    I am also going to Ghana for a creative arts program for street kids in August and this would be awesome to have and also introduce to the kids :)
    Thanks for offering this. I am also following you on fb+twitter and retweeted the text.

  38. This would help tremendously with my photos! My apartment windows face North, and there are many tall buildings around, so natural light is pretty scarce.

  39. Also, I just became a fan of Adobe Lightroom on Facebook!

  40. Blogging has introduced me to the beauty of photography, and I would love to use Lightroom 3 to enhance my blog pictures!

  41. AHH! We have *NO* natural lighting in our kitchen…KILLS ME! I neeeeeeed all the help I can get! Thank you for the giveaway :)

  42. To be honest, I want to win this for my husband. He is really starting to get more into photography and he really wants a program to use to help him with his new hobby. But, we can’t afford to actually get a decent program.

  43. I like you on facebook too!

  44. I would love to win this! Truly, I have no “real” photography experience. But I would love to play around with the software and try something new!

  45. I downloaded the free trial version and loved it but it ran out! I have a canon rebel t2i and want to learn more of the editing side!
