Tug O’ War

2 beagle mixes + 1 tug toy = puppy fun!

I couldn’t resist posting a second response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pets. πŸ™‚

… and with this post, I’m premiering my first attempts using Lightroom

While post-processing these three photos I was really impressed with the noise reduction capabilities of Lightroom. I’m still finishing up my photos, adding my watermark and applying unsharp mask, with GIMP, but hope to begin learning Photoshop soon. Although I have been happy with GIMP, I think it’s time to go mainstream.

There is definitely a learning curve that I’m struggling with. Just getting the settings right to import photos into Lightroom so that they would be organized and named properly has been a challenge.

If anyone has any invaluable Lightroom or Photoshop hints or other favorite post-processing apps/programs to recommend, please comment below!

    1. Thank you! They can be super cute πŸ™‚
      How did you go about learning Lightroom… trial and error, tutorials, a class? I wish I had more time to invest in the learning process so that I could get proficient sooner.
      It seems like there is way more to PS!

    1. Thank you! I’m always thrilled when I manage to capture some of their goofy expressions!
      I seem to be able to do what I want to do when I export. Importing always seems to be a surprise. I’ll think I have the settings right and then a new folder gets created instead of going into the “target” folder… or a sub folder gets created… or the files get renamed in a way I didn’t intend. The only time I manage to get it consistently right is when importing straight from the camera’s memory card. It’s all the stuff that was already in the computer that’s giving me the problems!
