OnOne Adds Layers to Lightroom
Adobe's Lightroom is amazing for editing photos in a non-destructive manner and makes RAW processing a breeze. But one thing that was always missing was Photoshop's powerful layers feature. Now the ability to stack and blend various edits within Lightroom has been realized thanks to OnOne's upcoming release Perfect Layers.
The add-in for Lightroom is now in public preview (which you can download from http://www.ononesoftware.com/products/suite/perfect-layers/?photographyvoice.com). Support for Bridge and Aperture will be included upon actual release. The preview is available for both PC and Mac.
Several webinars are being offered to demonstrate the power of Perfect Layers. Check out the schedule at: http://www.ononesoftware.com/webinars/

Applying New Skills to Older Photos
APAW - Week #01 - Tarmac
I frequent the DPChallenge.com site and one of the features there in the forums are the side challenges (similar to the soon to be completed Thematics here). This year they've started an Archive Photo A Week (APAW), which basically involves going through the scads of photos on your hard drive(s) and processing them now using skills you didn't have when you took it. In some cases, this will be salvaging the previously unsalvagable. In others, simply finding that diamond in the rough.
Since we're supposed to share the steps we took in processing the photo, I thought it would be good to post these in parallel here -- and stimulate me to set aside time to post in this journal.
