I've been using Lightroom ever since it first came out, and have upgraded to every new version. With each new incarnation of Lightroom Scott Kelby produces a new version of the Adobe Lightroom book for Digital Photographers, so of course, I buy each one as it comes out. Why? Because each new version has something the previous one didn't have, and each of Scott's books covers the new and/or improved features. However, there's much, much more to each book than simply a run-down of new features. Scott Kelby is one of those writers who is able to approach familiar subjects and give them a new spin. So although there is a considerable overlap with his previous Lightroom books (after all, it's basically the same program with improvements), he takes a fresh look at every module in Lightroom. I read it from cover to cover as soon as I received it, and realised that I hadn't been getting as much out of Lightroom as I could have done.

As usual, Scott doesn't go into the whys and wherefores of every feature; he sensibly leaves that to authors like Martin Evening, whose Lightroom and Photoshop books are packed full of technical info,which is very useful once you've mastered the basics, but daunting for the beginner and even for more experienced Lightroom/Photoshop users. Instead, Scott's approach is the same in his other books (I don't know how the guy finds time to write all those books and do all the other things he does): he talks to his readers as if he were giving them a lesson in person. He never makes assumptions about his readers' levels of knowledge, but he doesn't talk down to them either.

Scott Kelby is one of the most capable and most often-seen named authors of photographic instructional titles. Sometimes he writes alone, sometimes with others and whatever the subject, you can be certain of one thing - he knows his subject! In addition to the imprint of its publishers, it also includes another for Scott Kelby's company, KelbyTraining, as it is substantially based upon one of Scott's distributed courses. In addition to his many books, some of which are updates from earlier titles due to version updates - as is this, he also is an instructor on the same subjects. He gives live tuition and is to be seen on many CBT CD & DVD courses. I don't know how he find the time to do all that and still photograph.

Lightroom is one of the several software programs that are designed to perform workflow operations on RAW files, and it is the de facto standard for the PC user, that is of use to those who use RAW or RAW with JPG image format options in their camera. RAW is not really a format in the sense that JPG is a format, as all JPG files need to comply with a standard but RAW simply means unformatted and unprocessed and is likely to vary between the different camera manufacturers. If you own a Nikon camera that offers RAW, its files will be quite different from one using a Canon, Pentax or any other. You cannot interchange them or open them in whatever software is provided with your camera unless it is designed to do so, and most are not! Sometimes, the manufacturer of a camera may provide an older version of Lightroom, a modified version of it, or another such as Silkypix that does the same job in a slightly different way.

I purchased Lightroom 4 about two months ago and was impressed with the software and its capabilities. Having read the reviews of this book I decided to purchase a copy and eagerly awaited its delivery in order to try and improve my editing skills further. I agree with other comments that it is light and "chatty", but in my mind it is too light and therefore superficial in parts. It gives an extensive overview of libraries and organisation but it lacks detail on the developing, and here it often explains how but not always why. As a landscape photographer (mainly) I was looking forward to guidance on two functions/tools in particular. Firstly, the defringing tool and secondly the graduated filter. I had been playing around with the defringe settings and found I could eliminate or accentuate fringing of certain colours but I wasn't sure how I was doing it. In the book, however, chromatic aberration and defringing is relegated to two small paragraphs on page 261. Moreover, the author has reported erroneous and misleading information and instructions (e.g. there is no "all edges" function under the "manual" panel). Likewise, there is very little information on the graduated filter (p226). The author exemplifies its use with a picture of blue sky and wispy clouds - in landscape photography, you are not likely to graduate a blue sky! I had been learning how to apply multiple grad filters at different angles and at different points on the image, and to use them to selectively remove noise, sharpen, desaturate, enhance detail in shadows... Imagine my disappointment when the author gives one simple and rather inappropriate illustration of graduation. In short, this book is good as a general reference guide but, as a landscape photographer, I was found wanting and wonder whether self-teaching and use of resources on the web may have been a better option.
