I just came across this offer and wanted to share it with you. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (Full Edition, not the Student/Teacher Edition) is available today only (2/14/2012) for $79 at Adorama.com. Lightroom 4 will probably be released sometime in the upcoming 8 weeks or so, but if you don’t have a full edition, you will need to pay for a full version. I assume any full edition of Lightroom to date (LR1, LR2 or LR3) will be eligible for the upgrade price, but I don’t know that for a fact. Having a full edition allows you to upgrade for less than the application’s retail price. In the past (as shown in the screen shot below from the Adobe Store), the upgrade from LR1 to LR3 and LR2 to LR3 has been $99 (it may be less elsewhere). It is both Mac and Windows compatible.

Hello! This quick note is to let you know that some spaces are still available for my full day color management and fine-art printing workshop being held this Saturday 1/28/2012 at Calumet Photographic in New York City. In addition to a full day of color management and printing information, I will be showing more than 30 different fine-art paper types, as well as some metal prints.
The first 12 people to register will also have a print prepped and printed by me on a fine art paper of your choice. Below are two testimonials from recent attendees of the same workshop at Calumet Photo:
“Andrew gave a clear and detailed overview of printers, inks and most importantly settings that control the final quality of the prints. Â I love knowing that there is such a vast range of papers to choose from and how to get the best results from them. I stayed up quite late last night experimenting with the settings discussed in the class and I ended up with a print that I am pleased with! This is great, thanks so much for unlocking this mystery! The workshop more than exceeded my expectations.” – Polly W.
“I am a platinum printer with the need to make enlarged digital negatives and have been contracting this work out because even though I have followed the various blogs, I didn’t understand the requirements of what it means to be a digital printer. Â Andrew’s class gave me the framework to understand the process. Â He discussed the various options for hardware (equipment AND papers) and software from an unbiased, user viewpoint. This is VERY important. Â The week before I took Andrew’s class I went to the NY PhotoPlus Expo hoping to get a handle on my digital printing questions by talking to the various company reps and came away even more confused!
Andrew clarified all the sales hype and in a very straight forward manner showed what is needed to make great digital prints. Â Using participant’s digital files, he printed the images on various papers demonstrating the strengths of each and he also demonstrated the power of using Photoshop in such a clear manner that it is no longer a scary, black box, but a tool to be used. I highly recommend this class for anyone wishing to make digital photographs, and for experienced digital printers who wish to make better digital photographs.” -Lyle Allan
I hope to see you there!
