Book Description

Serious digital photographers, amateur or pro, who seek the fastest, easiest, most comprehensive way to learn Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 choose Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Classroom in a Book from the Adobe Creative Team at Adobe Press. The 11 project-based lessons in this book show readers step-by-step the key techniques for working in Photoshop Lightroom 5. And brand-new to this edition is a showcase of extraordinary images by working professional photographers that provides the perfect inspiration.

 

Photoshop Lightroom 5 delivers a complete workflow solution for the digital photographer, from powerful one-click adjustments to a full range of cutting-edge advanced controls. Readers learn how to manage large volumes of digital photographs, work in a non-destructive environment to allow for fearless experimentation, and perform sophisticated image processing tasks to easily produce good-looking pictures and polished presentations for both web and print.

 

This completely revised Photoshop Lightroom 5 edition explains how to fix tilted images and unwanted flaws in one step, and how to create off-center and multiple vignettes within a single image. Learn how to utilize new Smart Previews so you can work on images without bringing your entire library with you. You’ll also learn how to combine still images, video clips, and music into video slide shows that can be viewed on almost any device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instructive and enjoyable 19 Aug. 2013
By Geoff
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am using a Kindle Edition on a Samsung 10.1 inch tablet beside my main PC screen. The layout, structure and numerous coloured screen images make this book a real pleasure to read.

Having used and discontinued Lightroom 1.2 many years ago, I have recently purchased Lightroom 5. The content of this book is comprehensive and, as far as I am concerned, nothing important is missing. It has been a very pleasant learning experience. The book includes a link to downloadable chapter images that are used in the lessons.

Many years ago I bought a Classroom in a Book (CIB) for another Adobe product and it turned out to have so many errors that it became impossible to use; I and many others wrote critical reviews here and returned our books to Amazon as unfit for purpose. I am pleased to say that this CIB is a vast improvement and although there are some errors, they are relatively minor.

Overall, it is highly recommended.

Format:Kindle Edition
Lightroom 5 classroom in a book is OK if you buy the book version. I made the mistake of purchasing the Kindle edition which does not come with the code to download the practice files and other items from the Adobe website. Thankfully Amazon reimbursed me after I contacted them about it. I suspect that this applies to the whole Classroom series so be warned. warned.

This book is not really what I thought it would be. My fault no doubt. I don't want to do a whole lot of exercises - just guidance on how to make Lightroom work for me. Read more

I am finding it hard to get into. One needs to have the time to sit down and go through the book which I do not. Maybe if I get started and keep at it will be okay.
