How do digital
photographers handle thousands of pictures, maintain quality and efficiency in
their work, and stay competitive? Several leading digital photography companies
- including Extensis, GretagMacbeth, Lexar, Mirra, Nik Multimedia, Wacom, Microsoft,
Adobe, and Blue Pixel - have partnered together to address these questions. While
most professional seminars focus on the camera, editing, or printing, the Just
Show Me How seminar gives photographers the tools and knowledge they need to maximize
the effectiveness and efficiency of the complete digital process - after they've
taken the picture. The Just Show Me How Tour for professional photographers begins
in February 2005 and will visit 10 cities through April 2005.



The seminar will be taught by Rob Galbraith, professional photographer and digital
photography educator. Rob will guide attendees through the process of creating
an end-to-end solution that really works, using the best features of the hardware
and software available today. The goal of these seminars is to help serious and
professional photographers refine the process after the picture is taken, so that
they can direct their creative energies into what they really love - shooting
pictures.



Seminar Registration Details


Interested seminar attendees should visit www.justshowmehowpro.com
to register for an upcoming event. The cost to attend is $149 in advance or $169
for day of, walk-in registration. Check this web site for the seminar schedule,
which starts Feb 9.

Adobe Systems Incorporated(Nasdaq:ADBE) has announced that Adobe Photoshop(r)
Lightroom(tm) 1.0 software is now available for pre-order and is expected to
ship in mid-February 2007. Photoshop Lightroom enables professional photographers
to import, manage and present large volumes of digital photographs, helping
photographers spend more time behind the lens and less time at the computer.
With more than 500,000 photographers participating in the public beta program
over the last 12 months, Photoshop Lightroom now includes a wealth of innovative
features that streamline digital photography workflows. Recognizing the photography
community for their efforts, Adobe is offering Photoshop Lightroom at a special
introductory price of US $199 through April 30, 2007 at the Adobe Store. Photoshop
Lightroom will later sell for an estimated street price of US $299.



Photoshop Lightroom includes new functionality added since beta 4.1, with significant
changes to the Library and Develop modules complementing improvements to the
Slideshow, Print and Web components. While in the Library module, new advanced
keywording tools help photographers filter through large collections, and an
improved import dialogue with more flexible file handling allows more choice
when determining file location. The new Key Metadata Browser provides quick
access to key information tags with an improved ranking and rating system that
now incorporates color labels and a pick/reject system that sorts and locates
photographs faster than ever. New to the Develop module, Virtual Copies and
Snapshot tools help present multiple versions of the same image, providing the
most choice to clients without the confusion of saving separate physical versions.
Additional tools added include a Hue, Saturation and Luminance targeted adjustment
tool for precise and intuitive image edits. Clone and Healing features provide
non-destructive edits to eliminate sensor dust across one or many images.



Photoshop Lightroom leverages Adobe Camera Raw technology and supports over
150 native raw file formats, in addition to JPEG and TIFF, bringing raw conversion
into a single workflow experience. The latest camera models supported include
the Nikon D40 and D80 and the Pentax K10D. This support means that photographers
can use Lightroom with even the newest cameras on the market, knowing that the
image files will be recognized today and in the future. Upon import, files can
be converted to the Digital Negative specification (DNG) or renamed and segmented
by folder or date. DNG is an industry-wide initiative to create a universal
file format for solving workflow and archiving issues. It aims to eliminate
barriers to new camera adoption while giving professional photographers the
confidence that their digital body of work is securely archived and will remain
accessible as digital imaging technology evolves.
