A certain recent addition to the Blanc household has given me a heightened interest in photography. I’ve been playing with the beta of Lightroom 4 and as a non-photography guru I found it much easier to use than I expected — and the preset filters and settings are great.

I’ll keep using it for the full length of my 30-day trial before I decide to buy it, but so far it sure seems like a killer upgrade from iPhoto for editing.
