Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Since Lightroom was created from a blank slate, you're in the same boat as everyone else. Even if you're a total Photoshop guru, you'll have to learn this new program from scratch. Well, almost everyone's in that boat. Martin Evening's been involved with Lightroom since its earliest alpha tests: he knows it as well as anyone outside Adobe. His new Lightroom guide is all you could ask for: thorough, insightful, and replete with tips.

Evening covers all facets of Lightroom in this full-color guide. But you may be surprised just how extensive Lightroom's image processing capabilities are, and they earn fully one-third of this book. From finding the "holy grail" -- accurate color -- to getting B&W conversions right, Evening's explanations are superbly usable. Equally worth noting: his clear, practical advice on image organization -- including a discussion of metadata that may finally convince you it's worth your time. Bill Camarda, from the May 2007 Read Only
