The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers I¿m an advanced-amateur digital photographer who has been working with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom since it came out as a beta last year. It¿s an incredibly rich program that has already had two updates that have enhanced its already-significant feature set. When Scott Kelby wrote The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers, he created 394 pages of step by step instructions covering all the program¿s tools, options and capabilities across its five distinct workflow modules. Now, with the free upgrade to Lightroom 1.1, Scott has added an additional 55 pages of new material that are available from the publisher¿s Web site for free download. In addition, many of the images used in the book are also available to be downloaded. Scott Kelby has taken his usual approach in this book of talking with¿rather than to¿the reader. His always-quirky sense of humor helps when he has to describe some of the less-than-intuitive sequences necessary to adjust and greatly improve one¿s images. Scott¿s book is broken up into chapters that move through the recommended image workflow of Lightroom¿s four main operational modules: Library, Develop, Slide Show and Print. There are also chapters that cover all of Lightroom¿s preferences, getting images into Lightroom and using Lightroom with the Web. Like all of Scott¿s books, this is a how-to-do-it book that offers his own take on how best to work with Lightroom, but leaves plenty of room for the reader to use his or her own creativity. The book is far too exhaustive to go into detail here but, I can say, as I did above, that I highly recommend it, and I am sure that, read from start to finish 'which is not a requirement', the reader will come away with all the knowledge and skills needed to get the most from Adobe Photoshop Lightroom
