PRESS RELEASE: Adobe® Lightroom Learning Center Launched By The National Association Of Photoshop Professionals
TAMPA, FL - JAN. 9, 2006 - Today, on the heels of Adobe's public beta release of Adobe Lightroom, the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP) has launched the Lightroom Learning Center - the most complete resource for learning Adobe Lightroom, the amazing new workflow tool for professional photographers. (NAPP's learning center is found at http://www.photoshopuser.com/lightroom .)
"Professional photographers will be blown away by how easy and fast the task of organizing, and processing their digital photos has now become," said NAPP President Scott Kelby. "Adobe Lightroom is the tool the pros have been waiting for, and the fact that Adobe is making it available as a free public beta, gives photographers a chance to give Adobe their input, ideas, and suggestions to actually shape what will become an indispensable extension of their Photoshop and photography workflow," added Kelby.
The Lightroom Learning Center features free Adobe Lightroom video tutorials, articles, news, and interviews, along with an insightful panel discussion from the hosts of the top rated "Photoshop TV" video Podcast, which looks at differences between Adobe Lightroom and Apple's Aperture software.
Additionally, in this week's episode of Photoshop TV (released today) Scott Kelby, the world's top-selling technology author gives viewers a first look at Adobe Lightroom in a special segment with co-hosts Dave Cross and Matt Kloskowski.
More Lightroom tips and techniques from Kelby will be found in the March issue of Photoshop User, the official publication of NAPP, and the March/April issue of Layers magazine (the How-To Print Magazine for Everything Adobe) will also have a feature story on Adobe Lightroom by Photoshop guru Matt Kloskowski.
Adobe Lightroom Beta (released for the Mac OS only at this point) is available for free public download from http://labs.adobe.com/technologies/lightroom .
