PRESS RELEASE: Kubota Image Tools Announces Availability of “Lightspeed Workflow: Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom 2”
Time-saving DVD tutorial helps photographers master Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® 2
Las Vegas, NV (February 16, 2009) WPPI Booth #1719 – Kubota Image Tools is pleased to announce the immediate availability of Lightspeed Workflow: Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom 2, an update to its award-winning Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom DVD tutorial.
This time-saving tutorial from Kevin Kubota, professional photographer, instructor and a master of digital photography workflows, features Kevin’s comprehensive, easy-to-follow teaching technique which streamlines the process of working with RAW files in Lightroom. Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom 2 takes digital photographers step-by-step through proper organization, efficient editing and enhancing, and final image presentation. In addition, Kevin shares his insider tricks that have made his workflow tutorials and hands-on workshops overwhelming successes. More than just another Lightroom "Manual", this interactive instructional DVD is based on a proven workflow system used daily by busy digital studios.
“I’m particularly excited to be able to teach photographers about the wonderful new features available to them in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2,” said Kevin Kubota, Idea Man of Kubota Image Tools. “We created the first award-winning edition of this tutorial, derived from our live Lightroom workshops, to help digital photographers make the most of the features they really need, and to understand the ‘big picture’ of the entire workflow system. Now, since Lightroom 2 offers more tools for photographers to work even more efficiently, I created this brand-new update so I could teach everyone how to work most effectively with Lightroom 2—which ultimately allows photographers to spend more time behind their cameras doing what they love to do.”
The Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom 2 tutorial is available now for $99 as an interactive Quicktime Movie on DVD at www.kubotaimagetools.com. As a special bonus, it also includes over 90 Lightroom Presets (retail value $49) that Kevin has created to speed up workflow even more. The upgrade price for customers who previously purchased the first Kubota RAW Workflow for Lightroom tutorial is $39. Anyone who purchased the original tutorial after July 29, 2008 may receive a free upgrade. Contact [email protected] for details.
