5.0 out of 5 stars Serious help for serious LR3 users, 7 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers (Kindle Edition)
This is a detailed, in-depth guide to using Lightroom 3. As far as I can tell, the odd slips that bugged the LR2 book are gone in the ground-up rewrite.
Martin Evening does what Adobe seem incapable of doing in their help systems: giving a detailed account of what the program is for and why it is a good basis for a photographer's workflow.
Oh, sure, it doesn't have the casual mateyness of some other books (thank goodness). LR3 is a complex tool though you can scratch the surface quite quickly. To get the most out of it, and the money you gave Adobe, requires effort and this book will help you minimise that effort.
The main part of the book is organised in workflow order: import & cataloguing, development (editing) and output (various forms). Even us amateurs need an organised workflow with digital photography, otherwise we just waste precious spare time. If you are new to Lightroom, read the first chapter for an overview and then get stuck in to the main part.
If you are an old LR hand, then the book becomes a refrence, especially to the bits that have changed from LR2 to LR3.
