Win Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2

Win a brand new sealed copy of Adobe’s Lightroom 2 – a $299 value. While I am more a Photoshop CS4 fanatic, I do use Lightroom as a way to sort through my photos and do basic white balance and exposure adjustments.  It is capable of so much more than I use it for too.  But you just cannot pull me from my roots.

 Win Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2

To enter  the contest, do the following:

  • 1st entry: Leave a comment in the “comment section” of my blog – comments left on Facebook (page or group) will NOT be counted as there is no way to integrate these. The comment should answer the following, “How would owning Lightroom help you?”
  • 2nd entry: If you post to twitter and/or facebook and write, “Win Lightroom 2 for Photographers from @mcpactions – visit http://mcpactions.com/blog for your chance to win.” Then you can come back here and leave a second comment as your 2nd entry (just leave your twitter ID – for example @mcpactions or your Facebook name)

It is that simple!!! Winner will be picked at random by my twins Sunday evening.

    I would LOVE to have Lightroom.
    I think it would help me out in so many ways. But most importantly the capabilities of dealing with a RAW photo would be #1! I also think it would help me by speeding up my PP time!!
    It would be a challenge crossing from Photoshop to Lightroom… but I am definitely up for that challenge!!

    There are so many words out there to describe MCP Actions… Amazing is what pops in my head when I think of these to help me through my daily routine of editing. I also hit up the blog once a day to check out all the resources you have and read through them over coffee. I look forward everyday to reading them.. I Love you MCP Actions!!!

    Lightroom 2 would help me save time, by allowing me to batch edit my photos. Time is valuable in this profession, so I think THAT alone would be worth getting it.

  11. 11

    Owning Lightroom, would really help me with my workflow. It takes me so long, and this would really cut out a great deal of time.

    Wow, i’ve heard so much about lightroom. I think the biggest thing that this program would help me with is workflow. I think it would be an incredible tool for any photographer.

    I’ve been working with PSE7, but I think Lightroom could really help me out more with my exposure. I’m not a professional, and I am still working to get it right SOOC.

    Owning Adobe Lightroom 2 is something I’ve been dreaming of (maybe cheesie but true:) I am just getting to grips with all the equipment I need to be a pro, and Lightroom is high up on my list. I would be sooooo excited to win :):) Thanks.

    I am a PSE user and just took their $299 upgrade to CS4, it will arrive in the mail eventually, I wanted the box, not just a download. I’ve wanted CS for so long, I wanted to be able to hold the box. I wanted to add on Lightroom at the time of purchase, but it was just a bit more than I could spend. I would love to have lightroom to speed up my sorting and basic processing/correcting of photo shoots or family photos. Right now I view the batch of files in a windows preview view of the folder, it is slow and tedious. Lightroom would be such a bonus to streamlining my workflow, especially as I am already burning the candle at both ends.

    Karly says:

    I’ve never used Lightroom, so I’m not sure how it would help me. I think it would save me time, because I’ve heard that you can edit multiple pictures at once somehow. It’d really probably end up costing me a ton of time because I’d have to play, play, play with it until I got the hang of it! But, I wouldn’t mind! ;)

    Owning “Lightroom” would allow me to edit my photographs. I have a passion for photography, love it, feel as though it is my calling, but with three small kids and a full time teaching career, finding the time and the money is challenging. I’ve wanted to purchase this program for quite sometime now. It would give me a chance to create and edit the visions in which I plan to capture with my camera. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Having Lightroom in my set of post-processing tools would allow me to edit faster by being able to better batch edit a set of photos to correct for white balance, exposure and saturation/vibrancy issues; plus it would allow me to apply presets in batch as well.

  117. 117

    How would owning Lightroom help you? Well, I’ve never used Lightroom, but it seems like all my other photographer friends do and they all speak very highly of it. They all say that it’s a “must have” for photo editing. This is my first year for my photography business and Lightroom has been on my long list of things to purchase for the business. Unfortunately, that list is a long one. It would be great to win Lightroom so that I could take my photo editing to the next level!

    Thanks for another great contest Jodi!!

    How exciting! I would love to win this. It would help organize my pictures and do some initial editing before using Photoshop.

  159. 159

    Lightroom would be a great organizational tool to help speed up editing and cataloguing my images.

    I would love to win this. I have been debating on getting either Lightroom or Photoshop.

    Catharine says:

    I have it and I love it. But it is currently on my main PC computer where I do the majority of my work. Well, I bought a MAC laptop and am really disappointed that I can’t use it on there. I would love to do some of my post work in a coffee shop with my laptop or on vacation, so another Lightroom is much needed!

    I would love a chance to win Lightroom. Sometimes I don’t need to use all of my actions, and this would be a great way to make slight adjustments. PLUS, I’ve never seen Lightroom in action, and would love the opportunity to play with it.

  169. 169

    Winning Lightroom 2 would be amazing and helpful because I can’t afford it myself right now – I AM POOR! LOL (But seriously…poor.) I’m relatively new to the world of Photoshop, and would love to add this to my collection of image editing software. Great organizational tool and much more! Thanks for this opportunity! ~ Jen

    Laurie Y says:

    Using lightroom 2 would allow me to have a better and faster workflow, use of some cool actions I’ve seen others use with lightroom etc! I don’t think I even know half the extent that LR2 could help me!

    Jordan says:

    Darn it – I forgot to answer how – I think that being able to organize and tag my photos, the speed in which you can work through RAW files (unlike the clunky Canon software), and the fact that there is now a spot adjuster (as opposed to the old universal adjustment across the entire image) all makes me convinced that Lightroom would make for an amazing improvement to the time I put into processing. Also, if I don’t win this contest I am a shoe-in for the best run on sentence EVER.

  190. 190
    Barb says:

    I think the main way that it will help me is by saving time. The way it will do that is by helping me to be better organized, to more easily go through my photos and delete those I don’t want, to apply the same action quickly to many photos at once, by helping me with white balance, and so much more!

  191. 191
    Pam says:

    How would LR2 help me…gosh it might make me push the button on the 5DMII so I can convert my RAW files…yippee!Currently using LR1 with my 40D and want to upgrade soon.

    how would lightroom help me ??? well I am just in the beginning stages of getting my photography up and running. and having lightroom to edit in would make life so much easier. rather than sitting all day editing step by step in PSE i would be able to set up actions to help me batch my photos and edit a bit faster.

    Shelley says:

    Right now I have PSE 7 and it takes me a long time to edit photos. I know if I were to receive lightroom it would be a complete time saver. This would help me get my photos edited faster which in the end would give me more time doing what I love to do…spending time with my husband & our twins and of course taking more photos. I really hope to win because I know lightroom would be an excellent compliment to my PSE 7.

    I am in desperate need of both of those things…organization and time saving!

    I would love to be able to edit more efficiently and lightroom would help to get to that point as well as help organize my workflow. Batching photos when they only need basic tweaking would really speed things up and maybe I can get more sleep!

  204. 204
  205. 205

    Ohhhhhh, let me tell you how lightroom would help me! I stay up till about 3 am four nights a week in Photoshop editing client sessions. Which is fabulous, because I am able to deliver hand-edited images and still be a mom during the day. But man, with Lightroom (I’ve tried the trial version and am scrimping and saving to buy it through crashed cameras and necessary lenses, lol!) I could speed up my processing by so much, and hand-select the images to move into PS. AND I might get to sleep again this century! So it would help me be a more efficient artist and better businesswoman, and a nicer wife and mom. There!

    I’m fresh and new to photography and editing, and have only read numerous articles on Lightroom. I believe it would make for faster editing…thus more time spend with the family! Who doesn’t want to spend less time in front of the computer and more time with their loved ones!! :)

  314. 314

    I just downloaded the 30 day free trial…and while I’m still very confused with the interface I like what I’ve seen! Would love to have this as my very own:)

    Being an avid Photoshop user for web design as well as photography editing, I’d love to own a copy of LightRoom. I’ve heard many wonderful things about LightRoom and it would greatly help with mass editing my photos, especially since I tend to shoot a lot in the same lighting conditions – I’m a sucker for shooting animals, bugs, birds, etc!

    Daniel Seymour says:

    I have worked in the much-beleagured printing industry as an account manager for the past 11 years. During that time I have come to enjoy the process of bringing the ideas of creative people to print. I had also begun to explore Photoshop Elements and found it to be a great way to fulfill my creativity. Sadly, in March my employer had no choice but to lay me off. Jobs within the Print Sales industry are pretty much non-existant.

    However I have been teaching myself Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign at home. Additionally I have been studying Marketing to best understand how graphic design and print fit into the larger picture of promoting products and services. Further I am seeking funding to get a Graphic Arts Computer Certificate from a community college nearby.

    My hope is to find away to help small independent businesses more effectively brand themselves and promote themselves through print media and the internet. These are the businesses that are hardest hit in the recent economic troubles. However they are also the most underserved within the graphic design, printing, and marketing industries. Ironically enough the technological advances in printing and the internet are well-suited to allowing these businesses to get their message out to a degree previously only available to larger companies.

    Once I am able to get that enterprise rolling, I would like to offer my services at a reduced cost or free of charge to local non-profit organizations.

    Any software I could have at my disposal would go along way towards my personal and professional goals. Your consideration is appreciated.

    How would owning Lightroom help me?

    Obviously … powerful meta data tagging and indexing images in its internal database. Quick sorting, quick basic processing and lightening quick web galleries. Awesome!

    Thanks! :)

    Capture One is not as easy to use as Lightroom and changing would make my life much simpler in terms of workflow

    Krysta says:

    Owning Lightroom would help me because it’d allow me to finally start shooting in RAW! My camera’s RAW format isn’t compatible with the version of Photoshop that I run (CS2)… and the free software that came with my camera is really awful. I’ve been wanting to shoot RAW for awhile now, but there’s just been no point in trying it if I have no way to post-process my images.

  358. 358

    Owning Lightroom would help me in sooooo many ways!!!! I am just getting started with my photography business and have only used the Photoshop CS4 trials thus far. I have heard amazing things about Lightroom and I recently had the chance to try it on a friends computer and I love it!!! I think it could help me jump start my business and take my editing process to a whole new level! :) Pick me, pick me, pick me, pick me!!!!! :)

    I have always been a Photoshop hound. I swear by it and could never let it go. That being said, owning Lightroom would REALLY help me when processing wedding photos because I shoot sooooo many photos that have similar adjustments and it would also help me in organizing my sessions. Windows just really isn’t that great for organizing… or anything else for that matter. ;)

    I’m currently trying to save our local theatre company in town and do all of the publicity (show photos, posters, actor headshots etc.) and we have no funds at this time.

    Holly Irwin says:

    Lightroom would help me speed up my workflow allowing me more time with my family.

  388. 388

    I think it would help to increase my work flow and make things easier instead of harder.
    Sometimes editing in PS7 can be so slow and tedious…this would be a major step in the right direction to creating better images faster.

    How would owning Lightroom NOT help me? It would certainly ease the old workflow issues that I have. Post-processing, even the little I do, can be a bear at times.

    And it would make me an all-around happier person. :)My family would love that.

    Lightroom will be a huge help to me as I lost my old copy when I switched from PC to Mac! I am a natural light photographer and I love how most of my photo adjustments can be done through Lightroom (I have yet to become a Photoshop expert). I am in desperate need of my favorite program!

    Wow Lightroom 2! I must say when I downloaded my trial a few weeks ago my immediate reaction was I hated it but then I learned a little about its power. It is amazing for organization and click changes. I am the type that has so many pictures that are unedited of my son and Lightroom has helped me go through those quickly and organize them. My harddrive would definitely benefit from Lightroom 2 although I still think CS4 is more powerful for the hard stuff this program is amazing for organizing. I now see what all the buzz is about and winning would mean I wouldn’t have to choose and give up LR after my trial is over. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Since giving birth to my twin boys, 4 months ago, I have very little time to edit all the pictures that I take of them..not to mention my clients photos too..lol. Lightroom will give me more time to spend with my boys and not at the computer!

    I think Lightroom was developed for photography, whereas PS was developed more for graphic art. As a PS user myself I would love to learn lightroom to cut down on my post-process time. I keep hearing how great it is, but haven’t purchased it yet.

    I would love to learn photoshop and lightroom. I have been taking photos for many years and feel that it is time to branch out. Lately, I’ve been doing portraits, seniors, babies and just shots to make notecards. I’m also the one with the great camera who gets pulled aside for photos for work, family events and things like that. Using Lightroom would be a great opportunity to take it further and boost the photoshop skills that I am just honing. Thanks for the great giveway, anyone who is the happy recipient will be sure to be elated! Great blog, I learn so much from you!

I’m currently working with the old photoshop 7, and having some updated software would be amazing!

    Currently, I am using PS Elements 4.0. Talk about dinosaur! Lightroom would speed up my editing process as well as provide a wide range of editting options to offer my clients. It would be fabulous to be able to edit all my photos at once with the ease of having all files shown as tabs in LR. The faster I can edit, the more time that leaves me behind the lense!
