New MacBook Pro and Lightroom 2

March 30th, 2009 Posted in People, Workflow

Have my new Mac…finally. The two biggest surprises were 1) how fast this thing runs not only with respect to applications but also to start up and 2) how easy it was to get use to and be productive. There were a few things I had to get straight in preferences and settings. Once I had that, everything else was gravy.

Lightroom 2 is very, very nice. The adjustment brush tool is very slick, easy to use and well worth the upgrade. Below, I just made a few adjustments by adding some exposure to his eyes and also using the “Soften Skin” effect on his face. Within a couple minutes I was thrilled with how easy it was. I’m still considering CS4, but Lightroom 2 has me thinking I can wait a bit longer.

Kid in the swing
