Well, I finally ordered lightroom. A little late to the party, I know.
Congrats Brenda - its a Great Tool!
have you downloaded the free 30 day trial? you can pop in your serial # when you get it
When I got Lightroom a few yrs ago - I wish I had someone sitting beside me for 30 minutes to teach me how to get around, import, organize, edit and export. Would have saved me 6 months of pretty slow process...
Avail yourself of the many many free tutorials from Adobe or youtube. Start with importing and the Library Module, and then the Develop Module and exporting.
Just trying to help you save time.
