I am new to photography, so I am also new to photographic related software. After too much research, I have decided on a few programs to use. All of this is really quite overwhelming. I like what I have seen with LR2, and I am on LR2.7. I also downloaded the NIK series of plug-ins. (I also have PSE8, Photomatix pro 3.2) Needless to say, I get lost more than I care to say. I have LR2 books I have LR2 tutorials saved as favorites I have LR2 sites saved as favorites. I am starting to use the program and I realize after viewing the tuts and videos and reading that I really need to just use the program and see what is what. My real question is, How much do you really know about the software you are using?
