Not bad, but in need of a print update,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers (Paperback)
The content that's in the book isn't bad, doesn't waffle too much, and goes about things in a very practical and informative manner and would be an essential purchase were it not for the fact that it hasn't kept up with the software. There are some sections that only tell half the story (or less), particularly those on noise reduction, sharpening, exporting and keyword management.
The publishers provide a pdf update, but it's a supplement rather than the whole book and that makes it awkward because it means there's no single definitive resource.
My recommendation would be to try and make do with the help available from the Adobe WEB site and buy this book when it's been updated to reflect the current software version. This is particularly so, given that the first beta of version 2.0 is available, and that's sufficiently different to 1.* that it'll render the book irrelevant.
The publishers stuck a label to the front of the book mentioning the update. Fine except that it's next to impossible to remove without either leaving a sticky patch or damaging the cover...
