And . . . we’re back to covering this again. Adobe has been teasing the exclusivity of its Photoshop Photography Program for a good 5 months now. Initially, it was only available to previous customers with a CS3 or higher license. Then, Adobe opened it up to everyone for a little bit. Then, closed it back to only CS3 and up customers. Then, opened it and closed it and . . . . ahhhhh!
For whatever Adobe’s reasons are, the deal is back on again and there are no limitations to subscribe. The deal is available to everyone until March 31, 2014. After that, who knows what Adobe plans to do.
You can sign up for the Photoshop Photography Program here on Adobe’s website.

If you have been using Adobe Lightroom for very long, you might be in the situation where your image catalog has outlasted your current computer. Accordingly, when you upgrade your computer to something newer and faster, you will want to take advantage of that improved speed and begin using it for your image processing workflow. Of course, you also don’t want to lose access to all of the images you processed on your old computer.
Lightroom works by using catalogs that contain processing info related to the images in your Lightroom library. As such, the Lightroom catalog does not contain the actual photo files, but rather data concerning organizational and processing actions you’ve made while working with your photos inside Lightroom.
And simply plugging in a hard drive that contains all of your photos from your Lightroom library won’t carry over your final edits. As a result, you will want to take your Lightroom catalog along with you to the new computer. But how do you do that?
It’s a fairly straightforward process actually. Follow these steps and you will be able to pick up right where you left off with your old machine. [click to continue…]
Adobe just added lens support for the iPhone 5S in Camera Raw 8.3. In this video Photoshop Sr. Product Manager Bryan O’Neil Hughes explains the process of improving iPhone images in Photoshop.
I do many of these same things with my iPhone images; however, I import my files into my Lightroom library. I generally just dump my iPhone images into my Lightroom library every so often. I use a dedicated folder simply labled ‘iPhone’ for each year, so that all of my photos from 2013 from iPhone are in a single folder. From there, I can edit and add to collections as I see fit and I can always go back to find images from my iPhone in a single folder. As an added bonus, all of these images are geotagged, so I have another way to sort if needed.
Do you guys use Photoshop or Lightroom for editing images from your iPhone or Android phone?
