Does this make me a geek?

Lightroom Splash Screen

I’ve pretty much grown up with Adobe products, as both a graphic designer and a photographer. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen splash screens appear, and never really gave much thought to the names on the graphic.

Now having worked very closely with the people on the Photoshop Lightroom team, it’s clear how much blood, sweat, and tears go into each release of the software. And now that some my own skin is in the game, I am extreemly honored to have been included (and immortalized) in the splash screen of the next generation of digital image management software … Photoshop Lightroom 2 beta.

For a “pixel-geek” like me, this is almost the equivalent to getting your hand-prints in the cement outside of Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollyweird.

  • Oh and yeah, a total geek!

  • Hey Fred – to answer your question – yes – this makes you a geek. And I don’t advise flashing the splash screen at the local bar as a pickup line – but it’s VERY cool and I’m VERY jealous. Congrats!

    Way to go Fred! I REALLY like Lightroom. I wasn’t familiar with it until I started listening to the TWIP Podcast and had just been doing arduous photo editing in Photoshop. I was doing all my image flagging using Windows explorer and three folders (Yes, Maybe, and No). LR makes this a piece of cake.
