Day 238

All Smiles For Now, originally uploaded by Shutterbug Cel.

Ugh the time I have been through today trying to get this photo uploaded. I am currently testing out both Nikon NX2 and Adobe Lightroom 2 in hopes to decide which one I want to purchase. Learning both at the same time is confusing the heck out of me. Now that I have seen what they can do I really don't want to go back to the way I was processing photos before. But trying to learn a new workflow on 2 new programs is getting me flustered. The only thing I like more about NX2 is the touch-up brush, the rest I am starting to prefer Lightroom. Its saving the files that is tripping me up today. Somehow when I saved them and uploaded them to Flickr they looked like horrible drab, muted photos. But when I preview them on my computer they look fine. Anyway to say I am completely flustered at this moment is an understatement. I suppose I could really use a crash course in Lightroom. All I really want to know is how to take an edited file in Lightroom, move it to PS, resize it for the web and save it as a jpeg.

Great Photo!

Hope you received an answer to your question by now, Cel.

I do see a site offering free templates and training for lightroom online. And a slew of well received "missing manual" books for lightroom on Amazon.
