5.0 out of 5 stars Lightroom 3 - The Missing FAQ, 15 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Adobe Lightroom 3 - The Missing FAQ - Real Answers to Real Questions asked by Lightroom Users (Paperback)
I have to agree with other reviewers. This is an excellent book that complements the more conventional training books out there. It does not need to be read front to back, rather utilised to answer specific questions as required.
The author, Victoria Bampton (aka The Lightroom Queen), is very knowledgeable and her writing style is straightforward and easily understood. She contributes a lot of her time on Adobe's forums and her own, sharing her knowledge willingly. I can also recommend her forums as a great place to visit for support. There are many Lightroom experts available and the atmosphere is very friendly.
Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars buy book and get pdf and ereader versions too!, 21 Jan 2012

This review is from: Adobe Lightroom 3 - The Missing FAQ - Real Answers to Real Questions asked by Lightroom Users (Paperback)
I haven't had this long but so far it has been invaluable - thanks Victoria. Tipped off by another reviewer, I followed the instructions on p53 and sent off an email for the link to pdf and kindle versions. I heard nothing for several days so emailed again - glad I did because the first had not arrived (so do try again if no luck first time) within couple of days received reply and now have the electronic versions. Pdf especially good as has the colour missing in the paperback + can have it open on split screen while using Lightroom. It would be nice if other authors were to follow Victoria's generous decision to make several formats available for price of the book.

This review is from: Adobe Lightroom 3 - The Missing FAQ - Real Answers to Real Questions asked by Lightroom Users (Paperback)
This is an excellent book. It is most useful if you want to dip in, or find answers to specific questions (as its title implies). To this end the Contents pages are a good guide. The index is less useful, but then the pdf or other electronic book format is invaluable, as you can search for any word or phrase instantly. The book takes you through the various modules of Lightroom in a logical order, and answers the questions in a clear and generally comprehensive manner. If you find a question that isn't dealt with (I haven't found any significant ones yet), there is always the author's website ([...]- curiously, I couldn't find this in the book!), and she lists other sources of help at the end of the book.

I can thoroughly recommend this book both as a means to finding answers and also for delving into the more obscure capabilities of Lightroom.
