Adobe Lightroom 3 for $189 – One Day Only

Amazon is running one of its “Deal of the Day” promotions on Lightroom 3 today.  For those unaware, Lightroom 3 is a RAW image processing program that makes life working with RAW files so much easier.  It also carries a hefty retail price of $300, so getting it for $189 is a real bargain.

If I could only have one photo editing program, this would be it.  Here’s the link to the deal page on Amazon.
