I have been using a new program to edit my photos. It is Lightroom by Adobe. It is designed by photographers, for photographers and is really easy to use. I don't know that i would call myself a "photographer", but i like to take photos. I have loved this program so much more for the basics. Like I've said before, I am not computer savvy or motivated to learn the technicalities of the computer. I guess that is the artist part of me (or the lazy part....I can't decide). Photoshop was always very overwhelming even though i learned a few great things on that program. I still use it for the more involved edits, but for the most part Lightroom will do everything that I want to do. My favorite part is that it has it's own pre-sets which would be the equivalent of Actions in Photoshop. You should all try it out. There is a free-trial available of the Beta version.
These photos of my little brother and his family were edited in Lightroom. His little girl is the niece that I watch every day. She is such a good baby. She has the funniest little personality that is starting to present itself more and more. Very feisty. And, as you can see, very photogenic.

Congratulations on your mothers day present. LUCKY!!! I'll admit I'm a little jealous. Cute pics of your bro. His daughter is adorable. I love her headband. I wish Kennedy would keep stuff in her hair - hair stuff is just a little too cool and apparently tastes pretty good.

Annie, these pics of Evan's family are great! I need to remind Dave to check them out. Marci is so pretty. I wish I could look more in style like she does so naturally.

And Evan's hair reminds kids call him Uncle Pokey because his hair is always sticking up crazy. Very cool.

You know, Dave and I do such a lousy job of keeping in touch with Evan and Marci. That will change today!
