What I have been waiting for.,
This review is from: Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 - The Missing FAQ: Real Answers to Real Questions Asked by Lightroom Users (Paperback)
With Lightroom 1 2 3 and 4 I always brought the latest copy of Martin Evening's book.
However I have to say, it's very wordy and rarely I found answers to the questions I was looking for.
I also like to say I hate e books. Kindle is ok, e books don't work for me. However having seen bits of Victor's Lightroom book I took the plunge and brought the e-book version.
It's colour, it's excellent, it's straight to the point, and I have already learned things I never knew about Lightroom. The lady doesn't waste words, but simply tells you what something does, how best to use it and only goes into more detail if it is needed. It's also nicely set out, meaning what you want to know is quickly found, and unlike Martin's books, there isn't three pages explaining something, but a short paragraph.
She also gives web addresses for handy little applications like the one where you can save all the settings for lightroom, like metedate, stuff like that, all of which is lost normally, and I have never found where these settings are.
This is the book I wish I had since Lightroom 1. It's half the price of Martin's book and much more helpful. Victoria may not be someone close in on the team, but she knows her stuff and she is very good at getting that stuff to you clearly and quickly. I just can't say enough good things about it really. It's that good.
