When Lightroom 4 hit the virtual bookshelves a couple weeks ago, there was quite a bit of buzz in the blogosphere.  I’ve even talked briefly about it solo here on the blog (albeit in Beta format), but now that the hubbub has all died down, it was great to take a step back and really look at the nitty gritty details of the application with the calculating eyes of Laura Shoe!  For those of you that don’t know Laura – she’s an educator and trainer and has released her own DVD and Video resource manual for everything you need to know about LR4.  I invited her on the show to share some thoughts and insights on a deeper level for everyone.  We talk about our favorite features,and look at the roadmap for the program.  Can there possibly be more?  What has Adobe missed or should we expect to see in the future?  We also tackle a few listener questions, so be sure to get the latest from The Learning Digital Photography Podcast!

One thought on “LDP Podcast #68: Lightroom 4 – Can There Be More?

  1. I love Lightroom 4. I just hope they work the bugs out soon and get it running a bit smoother. It can be a bit slow at times and that is a real hinderance when you are a wedding photographer and have to cull and edit 1500+ photos.
