I hope you’re having a fabulous Valentine’s Day! It’s early, but so far, I’m having a lovely day. My cat (Moe) is being very generous with his snuggles this morning. I couldn’t be happier.
To celebrate this day dedicated to love, I bought myself a gift—a one year licence to Lightroom and Photoshop! My free trial of Lightroom ran out a few weeks ago, and I’ve been completely lost without it. When I visited my aunt and uncle on Thursday, they had their living room all decked out for Valentine’s day. This was part of the display above their fireplace mantle. I couldn’t resist snapping a photo.
When I got home, I uploaded my photos from the afternoon to my iMac. The first thing that popped in my head when I saw the unedited version of this photo was, “Oh, man! I wish I had Lightroom!” If ever there was a photo that needed the Lens Correction/Enable Profile Corrections feature, it was this one. My horizontal lines were level, but my vertical lines were all over the place. The pine boards appeared to be slanting toward the centre near the top of the photo, and the tilted illusion was more pronounced on the left side of the image than it was on the right. I NEEDED Lightroom to fix it. It drove me nuts. As you can see, it’s fixed now. All is right with the world again. This was the best Valentine’s Day gift I ever bought myself!
I hope your day is filled with love (and perhaps Lightroom too). Happy Valentine’s day everyone!
