5.0 out of 5 stars The Photograph's Bible, 7 July 2010
This review is from: The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers (Paperback)
A practical (and detailed) book on Lightroom3 and how to extract from photographic images the 'picture you saw' when putting the camera to work. Extensive coverage on creating and maintaing with ease of access a library, there are four more modules with tools that, in the main, do not call for additional software. I really like the section on Print. Even so, the real worth of this book is that it opens the mind to the many ways the tools can help one personalise and capture the way things are done and recalled thus simplifying the flow of work next time around. Of course, Photoshop CS5 does give something extra but for the non-professional it is highly expensive and difficult to justify. The Authour excels by giving plenty of photographic examples and snappy, informative side notes. These act as an introduction or as a reference. The text gives the detail. With over 650 pages and readable explanations I find this book (as I did with Lightroom 2) an essential.

Good review - I have copy of Martin Evening's LR 2 manual (this is very good too) do you consider buying this one for LR 3 essential to get the maximum benfits of this this latest release? I only ask as the major changes to the latest version of LR are mainly with the backend of the product.
