Adobe Lightroom 4 — Variations on a Theme   Leave a comment

I installed an upgrade to Lightroom 4 this afternoon.  The most noticeable immediate difference compared to Lightroom 3 was the availability of presets designed to provide various “looks” to your imported photos.  You can also develop and save your own presets.  Here is a small sample of what you can do with this new Lightroom feature:
