5.0 out of 5 stars Cool format. Encourages you to jump in. 18 Jan. 2011
By J Wolfgang - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This text is geared toward beginners and intermediate users, but somehow Dan managed to include nearly something for everyone. For Lightroom, all the crucial info on importing, organizing, collections, developing, local tweaking with adjustment brushes, and exporting is covered. If you are new to LR this book will get you started! PhotoShop newbies get a run down on essentials like: preferences, Bridge (and mini Bridge), navigating inside PS, brushes, layers, and retouching techniques. They'll also be able to jump right into the nuts and bolts of masking, selecting, HDR, brush textures with bristle tips/mixture brushes, creating lens blur, and stitching panoramas. Beginners will love the easy layout. The format of tips encourages you to jump in without overloading your brain and eating away your precious weekends.

Both CS5 and LR3 have been out for a while and it is easy to forget all the new things included with their release. Dan shows you the good stuff without slowing you down with a history and background of what life was like in the Dark Ages. He cuts right to the chase. Advanced users may even enjoy looking over the book as a guide to see what they don't know or have forgotten.

4 Tips That May Have Slipped Past Your Radar (also in Adobe Digital Imaging How-To's)

#44 Exporting Slideshows as Video in Lightroom.
Once your slideshow is set up in the Slideshow module, go to "Export Video Button" and choose a video preset according to your needs. The Develop module is so powerful that I wonder how many people overlook the Slideshow module? LR 3 has added the ability to export a slideshow into a self contained video complete with and intro, transitions, and ending page.

#54 Mini Bridge
If you are used to Bridge, you'll have to remind yourself to try Mini Bridge. It behaves like a palette window inside PhotoShop allowing you to visually find files quickly. Click the icon panel that displays "Mb" on it to use Mini Bridge.

#80 Sharpening tool in PhotoShop CS5.
With the sharpen tool, check protect detail" in the options bar. Finally the sharpen tool becomes useful without causing the same nuclear pixel melting session that occurred in previous versions of PS.

#100 Image Processor
An oldie but goodie that is often overlooked. The Image Processor allows you to convert a group of images to JPEG, TIFF, or PSD format and/or resize them if needed. However instead of doing this through Adobe PhotoShop, I suggest selecting the images you want to address in Adobe Bridge then go to Tools->PhotoShop->Image Processor.

Overall: I would recommend this book to anyone getting started in Lightroom or PhotoShop and for seasoned vets who have skipped a version of LR or PS. Advanced users may thirst for more guru techniques, yet appreciate brushing up on tools that snuck past their radar. Dan is cool enough to recommend where to go next for anyone looking for more skills.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful information for any level of user 3 Nov. 2010
By JWeb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having been a Photoshop user for years I wondered what this book might have to offer someone who works in the program everyday. I was soon looking though the tips with a keen eye to see how I could tweak my workflow even further with the included offerings. Like anyone who uses Photoshop a lot knows, there are many different ways to achieve the same results. And we (me included) tend to use certain features in a way that are comfortable without realizing there are alternative methods that might actually work better. There were more than a few times reading through this book where I would come across a tip and think to myself that it might be a good way to replace or substitute a method that I currently use. Yes, for a seasoned user some tips might already be part of a current workflow, but since the book gives tips on 2 major ancillary programs (Lightroom and Bridge) there are many tidbits that any level of user will find informative and useful. It's also nice that the tips are up to date with current releases of the programs, and they exploit new features that may not be known by even current users.

The tips themselves are revealed in an easy to follow format that says enough to get a point across without being overly complicated or confusing. There are sidebars that relate to a main point being made which helps to give a more layered and comprehensive feel to what's being offered.

All in all the book was a nice way to familiarize myself with alternative methods of working as well as getting a look at the best ways to make the new features of Photoshop, Lightroom, and Bridge transition into my workflow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Step-by-step guide to CS5 and LR3 techniques 14 Nov. 2010
By CMC_CA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This how-to book for optimizing CS5 and LR3 is the right mix of written and visual instruction. Handy tips in the margins also provide a quick reference to best-practices for leveraging the power of these tools. The author organizes the information in a clear fashion with little room for newbies like me to get lost. I find the explanation of why a user may be interested in a particular very helpful as well. Over the course of the last few days I've established my preferences in both LR3 and CS5, streamlining my workflow. I've been able to improve upon my images using several of the post-processing techniques outlined in this book. A handy book to keep nearby when managing your post-production process.
