7 Videos to Get You Started with Adobe Lightroom 4

Adobe Lightroom 4Are you a photographer, designer that likes use your own images for projects, writer that likes to use their images in their articles, or maybe just someone that loves taking pictures? If so, then you need a tool that can help organize, import, edit, and share images.

In my opinion, the best tool for the job is Adobe Lightroom 4. It does it all. It isn’t as powerful as Photoshop but it easier to use and has lot of features and editing tools that the average photographer needs. Not only is this a great tool for the average user but it’s a lifesaver tool for professional photographers.

Although I am not a professional Photographer, I have worked for a client that need photo processing on a large scale. All processing was done with Lightroom and advanced processing was done in Photoshop as needed. After having to processing hundreds of images a day, I grew to understand how valuable Lightroom  was and I ended up purchasing Lightroom 3 and have been using Lightroom to edit all my images for personal and for my articles since then.
