Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Classroom in a book
on 9 November 2010
I am working my way through this book page by page, because Lightroom is a powerful program and a lot of study is required to learn how to use it properly. What I have found is lightroom is complex to understand, and to make sense you have to re-read the page over and over again.
The information is there, therefore it is my understanding of what is written, that takes the time (I am 70 years old) and by completing each task everything sinks in, and to the point you can complete each chapter's task with out the aid of the book.
Each chapter is written in the same way, and as I have progressed through each chapter so the learning has become easier. I still have to finish all the projects in the book, but I can now answer questions fired at me by club members about using Lightroom, so the book must be pretty good...
PS Carefully plan your filing method names, Category, Main headers and sub headers etc and put all your photos on one disk, and don't move them and your life will be very easy. I double down load, one set goes into archive on another disk, and one set I edit and grade in Lightroom.
When you consider that a 10 week 2 hour per lesson 'Adult Education' course on Lightroom could well cost over 150 UK pounds: The book is well worth the money: John, retired photography tutor.
