Overview

Written in concert with Adobe's development of the Photoshop Lightroom 2 Beta, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers - by #1 bestselling computer and technology author, Scott Kelby - is the most complete and concise Lightroom "how-to" book for digital photographers of all skill levels.

In The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers, Scott walks readers through the basics of Lightroom use, leading them to a brilliantly devised and super efficient digital photography workflow that dramatically improves productivity and allows photographers to spend less time processing photos and more time shooting them.

Throughout the book Scott shares his personal camera and Lightroom settings, as well as the studio-tested techniques he's developed for his own photography workflow. The book is written in his trademark step-by-step, plain English style, and because he knows what really works and what doesn't, he isn't shy to tell you flat out which tools to use, which to avoid, and why. This allows digital photographers of any skill level to jump right in using Lightroom like a pro from the very start, sidestepping a lot of the frustrations that typically haunt those unfamiliar with new applications…especially those as powerful as Lightroom.

What really sets The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book for Digital Photographers apart from other Lightroom books on the market are the last two bonus chapters where Scott answers the questions, "In exactly what order am I supposed to do things in Lightoom," and "Where does Photoshop fit in to the mix?" Both chapters start with an on-location photo shoot, including full details on the equipment, camera settings, and lighting techniques. Readers then witness as he takes the photos from each shoot through the entire workflow process, to the final output of the 16"x20" prints. And, because he incorporates Photoshop seamlessly right into this workflow, you'll learn some of the latest Photoshop techniques for portrait and landscape photography as well.

If you're one of those people who learns best by actually doing the projects yourself; who learns best without all the complicated technical explanations and confusing jargon, and if you really want to start using Lightroom today to unlock the productivity secrets of "The new digital photography workflow,"---there is no faster, more "straight-to-the-point" or more fun way to learn than this groundbreaking new book, and you are absolutely going to love it!

    Don't buy if you want to learn

    This book is too mechanical. He leads you step by step with everything, telling you just how HE would do it. I would rather have a book that explains each control and what it does. He just tells you to set this at that and that at this and press go. I'm a little more creative than that and would rather do it my way with a good understanding of the functions.

    Lightroom2 is good for beginners!

    This book has been very useful in my learning how to use this product. This book should be used with other materials like video tutorials found on the web to build a strong base to work from. Scott's style is light and informative. Though different work flows might be better suited for different individuals.

    Helped me get a lot more out of Lightroom

    After reading and following some of the examples in the book it opened up a lot of things that I was not aware of.

    This book was so easy to follow and made learning Lightroom so easy, Great book for anyone wanted to get started with LR and for those who already are using it. LOVE the humor and the way it's written. Organization really made sense.

    Excellent reference and learning guide for Lightroom 2

    We found this an excellent guide for first-time users of Lightroom 2. Kelby uses a workflow format for walking thru the software which we found helpful. It's also been a good reference tool when we have searched for a function.

    Kelby has done it again! Don't buy Lightroom 2 with out this book

    Clear, concise, but with a sense of humor. A staightforward guide to getting up and running and really working with one of the best programs ever created.

    I loved the first book and bought this one before the upgrade because I knew that there was no way I would add the upgrade without a perfect guide on using it.

    For the newbie or the experienced user this book will give you such a better ability to be succesful and happy with the program.

    A must buy.
