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!

    Serendipitous timing for the giveaway :) I was talking a few days ago about wanting to buy a Photoshop program with someone else to cut costs; and I need to decide which one to get: I was thnking Creative Suite but now I’ll look more into Lightroom. Everyone raves about it :)

    Always love reading your blog Averie.
    I’d like on you Facebook or something but I don’t even have a Facebook account!

  15. I liked you on facebook!

  17. I want to win this so I learn more about photography, and the tools to edit photos. My biggest challenge with the art is shaky hands! No matter how ‘still’ I hold the camera, I still manage to shake! I hope it wears off though :)

  19. Ohmygosh this is a crazy awesome giveaway!!! I totally would use this for my blog…I’ve ben wanting to work on my pictures…they need more pizazz!

  20. I already like you on facebook :D

  21. Hi Averie, I would LOVE to win a copy of Photoshop Lightroom, I currently have an outdated version of Adobe Photoshop (which I adore) and would really enjoy trying this program out after all I have heard about it. I take care of four websites, mostly volunteering my time doing so, centering around volunteer fire departments, fire and EMS training sites and EMS conferences – which equals LOTS of photos for training purposes mainly. I have worked with graphics for years and just love it. And of course, I carry my camera everywhere I go :)

    Happy Tuesday!

  22. Great giveaway :)
    My biggest photography challenge is lighting. We’re blessed to live in a house (and not in an apartment), however, this old house doesn’t have many windows. I’ve been using Windows Live Photo Gallery for simple tweaks, but I’m CRAVING a software that has more features!
    Plus, I’ve been doing some free-lance Graphic design on the side, and I’d love to be able to manipulate some of my components more easily!

  23. I already like you on Facebook :)

  24. waahoooo!! :D I would like to win this because it would really help brighten up my photos! And, I run into trouble with getting enough light in the photos~still a newbie here! teeheee.

  25. I just liked Adobe Photoshop Lightroom on Facebook too!

  26. I already follow your tweets, lightroom’s, and I just tweeted! :)

  27. This is the addition I have been waiting for to complete my adoration with photoshop and change the way I photograph!!!!

  28. oh wow! I love taking photos, but am still stuck using my oooooooooold point and shoot.
    I hope to upgrade my camera soon, and could definitely use some software to help me play around. Your photos are gorgeous, and watching you have fun with your camera is inspiring!

  29. I would love to win this! I just graduated college and my first project at my new job is to make ‘leave behinds’.. the problem is I have no equipment to make them with!!

  30. Loooove. I could definitely use this to spiffy up the pics I take of my handspun yarn. I’m sure my boyfriend would love it, too (he does very inventive things with his photography, like make his own lenses!).

  31. Pingback: It Smells Good

  32. I have never used photoshop – I’m just making the switch from film to digital, and lighting as become an issue all over again. And “digital darkroom” process… I would LOVE a copy of photoshop to help me master this!

  33. Holymoly I had to scroll a long ways to get to the bottom of the comments! ;) I want Lightroom because we were JUST talking about how much I wanted it! I currently don’t have an editing program and I’m reeeeeally hoping to be able to start producing better food photography. Taking photos is one of my favourite parts of blogging and I’d love to create some images I’m really proud of :)

  34. Great giveaway! My biggest challenge with photography is not having enough money to get quality lenses. It’s definitely an expensive hobby!

  35. My biggest challenge with photography now is wanting to get creative with effects or even be able to do simple corrections, but not having the equipment to do so. I’d love to do more food, Yoga, and streetscape photography.

  36. Facebook liked you, as always :-)

  37. oh my goodness, i would love to win this!

    i just started my own blog last month, and am only using iphoto to edit my pictures. lightroom would give me that extra something to my photos!

  38. As a budding amateur photographer, I’m finding limits to what Picasa can bring out of my photos. My biggest challenge is not having the options to tweak with all the small components, especially with regard to noise – I take a lot of low light photos and don’t have much help for noise reduction!

  39. i am so excited about this giveaway! i NEED this program because i have 3234324 pictures of my family that i would love to edit and play with. so fun!

  40. I would LOVE to win this because right now I am burning myself into the ground trying to work full time in corporate america along with geting my part time photography business up and running as a full time gig. Everyone has told me “get lightroom!!” and you will save SO.MUCH.TIME with post production. Getting this would hopefully help keep me from going insane from my CRAZY workload and allow me more time to just enjoy the art of taking photos again (not worrying about all the time spend editing). :)

  41. My biggest challenge with photography is that I don’t take pictures… Second challenge is that my camera sucks so the lighting always looks skewed. I would LOVE to play with adobe!

    Btw lady, I will be in ocean beach in a few weeks. Wanna grab a coffee, yoga or some raw food?

  42. Amazing giveaway! :) I would love to win as I bought a DSLR camera recently and I’m trying to improve my photography skills, but currently the only editing software I use is the basic one that came with my laptop…not so good! I love taking photos both of food and my family, but, as seems to be a common problem, I have issues with the lighting in my photos, and recently I keep getting white areas on my photos where light bounces off shiny packaging etc, annoying!!

  43. I already follow you, just followed Adobe Lightroom and Tweeted :)

  44. I have been hearing SOO much about lightroom from amateur and professional photographers but have had to make due to picasa / iphoto’s features. I would love to improve my photographs with lightroom. I am practicing concert photography and love doing engagement / marriage shots.
