Adobe Announces 'Make It Impactful' Contest For Lightroom Edits Share This on LinkedIn   Share This on Google   Tweet This   Forward This

In Make It Impactful: Optimizing Images With Lightroom, a Create magazine article, Adobe announced a new contest for images that have been edited in Lightroom.

When you share your edited image with the hashtags #makeitimpactful and #contest, you'll become eligible to win a one-year Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, a $1,000 Adorama Camera gift certificate, and a one-hour mentoring session.


And to get the ball rolling, the article explores three editing processes used by the contest judges Katie Orlinsky, Gareth Pon and Ted Chin:

  • Orlinsky's process highlights Lightroom's importing, sorting and rating tools to narrow a shoot down to one image.
  • Pon's process uses the Develop module to make Basic adjustments before using the Crop OVerlay tool and the Graduated Filter before comparing Before and After views of the image.
  • Chin's process uses several Radial Filters instead of a Graduated Filter to restrict his edits of the image.

Adobe said it would be running a total of four Make It Impactful contests this summer and fall. One of the four winners will be randomly selected to win the grand prize of a trip to Adobe MAX in Las Vegas, Oct. 18-20.

Photographers who don't already have access to Lightroom can download a demo version of the application at no charge.


The company also launched an official Instagram page today to spotlight photographers' stories from around the world.

The first week kicks off with both beautiful imagery and immersive stories "to inspire you to try something new and #BeBoundless," the company said.

And the contributors are some very big names, including Russell Brown, Julieanne Kost and Benjamin Warde, among others.
