Overview

Free Lightroom 1.1 update available. Simply visit peachpit.com/register to gain instant access.

Scott Kelby, author of the world's #1 bestselling Photoshop book, The Photoshop Book for Digital Photographers, brings his same award-winning, step-by-step, plain-English style, look and feel to The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers.

This groundbreaking new book doesn't just show you "which sliders do what" (every Lightroom book does that). This book takes you beyond that to reveal the secrets of the new digital photography workflow, and he does it using three simple, yet brilliant techniques that make this just an incredible learning tool:

#1) Throughout the book Scott shares his own personal settings and studio tested techniques he's developed using Lightroom for his own photography workflow since well before Adobe released even the first Beta version. He knows what really works, what doesn't, and he tells you flat out which tools to use, which to avoid, and why.

#2) The entire book is laid out in a real workflow order with everything step-by-step, so you can jump right in using Lightroom like a pro from the very start and sidestep a lot of productivity killing road blocks and time-wasting frustrations that might have tripped you up along the way.

#3) But what really sets this book apart from the rest, are the last two bonus chapters. This is where Scott visually answers his #1 "most-asked" Lightroom question, which is: "Exactly what order am I supposed to do things in, and where does Photoshop fit in?"

Scott teaches this in a manner we've never seen before in any book, by really showing every step of the entire process, from the initial shoot to the final prints. Both chapters start with an on-location photo shoot, including full details on the equipment, camera settings, and even the lighting techniques. You'll see it all as he takes the photos from each shoot (with you following right along using the very same images) all the way through the entire workflow process, to the final output of the 16x20" prints for the client. Plus, because he incorporates Adobe Photoshop seamlessly right into this workflow, you'll also learn some of his latest Photoshop techniques for portrait and landscape photography, which takes this book to a whole new level.

It's the first, and only book to bring the whole process together in such a clear, concise, and visual way. Best all, it's taught in Scott's trademark plain-English style that has won him legions of Photoshop fans around the world, and made him the #1 bestselling author of all computer books across all Computing and Internet categories since 2004.

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!

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Adobe's long-anticipated Lightroom has arrived, and it's got almost everything professional photographers need to manage, tweak, and present their images. Only one thing's missing from the box: Scott Kelby's wit, insights, and tips. For that crucial missing link, get Kelby's Adobe Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers.

We've praised Kelby's books before (most recently, Photoshop Elements 5 for Digital Photographers and his excellent tips collection, The Digital Photography Book). As editor-in-chief of Photoshop User and president of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals, he lives and breathes Adobe's tools. As you explore Lightroom, you'll find his enthusiasm contagious and his techniques indispensable.

Kelby focuses on maximizing productivity at every opportunity. You'll learn how to automate file imports using Watched Folders; how to perform one-click sorting with Collections; even how to apply the same edit to hundreds of images. Everything's written from the standpoint of the professional photographer (which is what Kelby is, when you strip away all that "industry-leader-and-world-class-instructor" stuff).

That professional viewpoint is especially helpful in the book's most detailed chapter, where Kelby illuminates the "serious" image adjustments you can do with Lightroom's "Develop" module. (Stuff like: using tone curves to add contrast; split toning; adjusting individual colors; and overcoming the color problems inherent in some cameras.) But it's equally evident in his discussion of branding Lightroom with your own studio's name, and customizing your slide shows and contact sheets.

Lightroom is about handling the organizational "overhead" that comes with being a professional photographer. Kelby is about doing it as efficiently as possible, and having some fun along the way. Bill Camarda, from the April 2007 Read Only

    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
