Feature a Friend 1You all know how I love me some features! This one I couldn't have done without a little help from the community! In this thread, I asked you to feature a friend. Lots of people did, and that's amazing. Here's to you guys for your kindness and talent and awesomeness. Note: Featurers are featured at the end! Thank you guys!pulbern pulbern is amazing! His tremendous enthusiasm for the community shines through in the work he does in groups [I'm fortunate enough to be a co-general manager of one group with him], the artwork he uploads, and the intelligent, witty posts he makes in the forum. And he radiates a warmth that's not affected in any way: he's a gentle, easy-going guy. And I'm so honoured to count him as a friend.

Macro and LightroomMacro WeekAstrikos for projecteducateLightroomAdobe Photoshop Lightroom is an amazing piece of software for editing RAW(or JPG) photos and organizing your photo library. Unlike Creative Suite CC, you have the option of paying once. However, this Lightroom 6 version is a bit more stripped down than the CC version of Lightroom. Adobe lists the differences here, but the some notable Lightroom CC only features are the new haze reduction/addition slider, mobile RAW editing, and cross connection to other Adobe products.TLDR; Lightroom is a great digital darkroom for photographers. You can buy/upgrade for $149/$79 respectively, or go the CC route for monthly rates of $9.99 (photography only- Lightroom + Photoshop) or $49.99 for full creative suite. Why Lightroom?
