It’s called “Photoshop Soup2Nuts” and it features a who’s who of Lightroom development, including Thomas Knoll (the man who wrote Photoshop and Camera Raw), plus Mark Hamburg (the “Father of Lightroom”), plus Jeff Schewe, Andrew “The Digital Dog” Rodney, and Adobe’s Pro-photo evangelist George Jardine, among others.
