Since I started using Lightroom I more often have a look at my old holiday photos. I believe the reason is because I like to play/experiment with them. Earlier I used Photoshop for this, but using “actions” in Photoshop is quite time-consuming since the only way of seeing an effect is to first apply it. If you know exactly what your action does, it works great though. If I’m just going to play with a particular photo, Photoshop would still be a good choice, but when it comes to multiple images…no thank you.
With Lightroom I find it so easy to play with my photos because of the sweet live-preview function. Without it I really don’t think I would spend as much time in Lightroom as I do.
Tonight I found some of my city-shots from a holiday in Firenze.
It ended up with this new preset called “PH In the city“.
