Art Silverglate gave me a software education on the PhotoPlus Expo show floor, so I invited him to share his knowledge with you.
When it comes to software, I am a simple guy. I was an early adopter to Apple's Aperture software, the software created for photo professionals. I have also been using Adobe Photoshop since the early days. Between the two programs, most of my needs were met. Or so I thought.
In an idle moment at the show, I mentioned to Art that I will need to change to LightRoom since Apple announced it would no longer support Aperture.
The lesson I got on LightRoom and all the other major photography software options was so extensive that I thought he should share it with you.
If you are wondering about which photo software is right for you, listen to my interview with Art Silverglate.
I know Art as the leader of the Creative Exposure Baltimore Meetup, a vibrant educational community. Art is also in the process of receiving his Adobe certification.

Part 1 — We talk in depth about Adobe LightRoom. You will learn how to set it up, tips for workflow management, and how to export for great prints. We discuss the new mobile version of LightRoom as well.

Part 2 — We talk about many of the other standalone photo software, many of which started out as plugins.
Art discusses how to use the following apps:
