Let’s begin with the General preferences (Figure A.3). At the top you can select the desired language you wish to use. If you deselect “Show splash screen during startup,” you can avoid seeing the Lightroom splash screen (Figure A.1) each time you launch Lightroom. This is just a cosmetic thing and it depends on whether you want to see the splash screen or not as the program loads. If, once launched, you select “About Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4...” from the Lightroom menu (Mac) or Help menu (PC), you will get to see the Figure A.2 splash screen, where you can read the full credits for the Lightroom team who worked on the program.
