Photo's etc.

Oh my goodness.  I haven't developed pictures since December....2009!  This past week developing pictures was on my "to-do" list, and I am proud to say after a year of putting it off, I have finally developed some pictures! It feels good to be able to see in print how much Ingrid has grown over the past year.  The total number of pictures developed: 400!!  So I tallied it up.....400 pictures per year over 18 years equals 7200 pictures!!  And that is just for ONE child.  Then I realized......I have only sorted through half the pictures in my computer organizing system.  That's right, i probably have another 200+ photo's to "send to the presses".  Yikes.  My goal was to have my pictures organized and printed by the time I get busy with my photography this sping and summer.  I have some work to do......

Currently I am a picnik premium package user.  It has worked great for me and I still like it, but I don't like to do a lot of editing (anymore).  I mainly just touch up exposure/contrast, sharpness, and make a few little tweeks here and there, but I really love what my new software has to offer.  That's why we bought lightroom 3.  I am super excited to get started!  We have to upgrade our computer as well, and as soon as we do I will have lots of learning to do!  I have spent the past couple of months researching and learning, so hopefully I will have a head start once it gets installed.  I can't wait...and hopefully with the organization tools Lightroom offers I won't be waiting another year to develop photos!
