My buddy Patrick over at onOne Software has sent me a pre-release version of their newest tool, Perfect Layers, so that I could do a quick demo for you. What I've decided to show you is how quickly, and easily I can combine three seperate images into a collage. Keep in mind this is a pre-release demo, but this will give you a quick idea of how much power this will add to your Lightroom workflow. For what it's worth, I haven't had a whole lot of time to play around with this software yet, but 1) it's really easy to come up to speed on, 2) it brings along a large subset of photoshop's layers functionality, and 3) it loads from lightroom pretty darn fast. All in all, it's pretty slick.
Make sure you maximize the video to full screen so you can see what's going on.
Go grab your own copy of the preview version at onOne's website and give it a try for yourself.
