Tools help me make things and that makes me happy. I can’t believe I’m going to spend a whole post on talking about a computer program though, since it has the chance of turning boring. Even though I’m not a fan of the intricacies of computers, it’s such a necessary part of the whole process that not having a computer would be hugely debilitating. Which brings me to one of my favorite tools, Lightroom4. Bound within this program are many different jobs that it can do, including keeping your photos in an easy to use database, editing of your photos, creating slideshows or printable books, and prepping your photos for printing. My most favorite use of this program is the database feature. I use the other tools in the program too, but I can’t imagine how much time I’d waste if I didn’t have a good way to store, organize, and catalog all the photos I take. If you’re a photo nut and you don’t have this program, get it. Like one of my favorite tv show character says, you’ll thank me later.
