In this latest edition Lightroom 5 version is discussed and he made it look everything interesting again, giving all his vast knowledge about Adobe's application in his simple to understand style which is helping user in step-by-step learning process. To be helpful even more, the book itself is laid out in a start-to-finish Lightroom workflow order. Beside simple explanation what can be done with each part of application author is presenting his own techniques, he speaks about his personal settings and styles that will help user in becoming proficient user.
Besides writing Lightroom guides, Scott Kelby also organizes training classes and it's obvious he understands photographs and application users, he knows what is troubling them and he helps by suggesting which techniques should be good and which ones would be better to avoid, all with explanation and examples. The book's extra value is part of the book discussing cohabitation of Lightroom and other famous Adobe application Photoshop, what can be done with Lightroom and for what Photoshop should be integrated into user workflow.
If you are searching for Lightroom guide I could recommend this one. With lot of examples from author's rich experience, you would not only learn using application but also be able to adopt some of author's distinct portrait retouching techniques and special effects. Although I been using Lightroom for some time, Kelby's new version of guide is welcome addition to my collection of photography software. Nov 17, Claire rated it really liked it Shelves: This book explains how to use Lightroom 5 in a very practical way.
It's a very good reference book. I do wish the book were larger so that the screencaps from Lightroom could be larger.
Lightroom's dark grey background with light grey text is hard to read in print. Kelby uses red circles to highlight things in the screencaps which helps.
If you already have Lightroom, you could just open it up on your computer instead of trying to read the tiny text in the book's images. I don't currently use Li This book explains how to use Lightroom 5 in a very practical way. I don't currently use Lightroom but have seen it enough to be familiar with its layout which helped. The book is broken into chapters covering the different modules.
The subsections of those are broken into numbered steps. Though the numbering is sequential, sometimes the steps aren't. That is to say step 3 might not be what follows step 2 but rather another way to accomplish step 2. I would've preferred additional subsections for alternative methods, but I understand it's a huge program and difficult to organize its explanation.
The end of each chapter save one or two has a Lightroom Killer Tips section on the topic with key tips for it. Just when I thought he'd forgotten to write how to back up any presets you'd made, I checked the index and got sent to a Killer Tips section with the answer. The book also includes a white balance card in the back and a lot of extras you can download online. I haven't checked out the latter yet but will once I start using Lightroom. Kelby's book was really helpful in giving me a sense of whether I would like Lightroom or not.
I think I will. He also gives lots of advice on the best ways to set things up to avoid hassles and make things easier.
He also covers what to do in Lightroom and what to do in Photoshop and how to get there and back. Aside from the small print in the screengrabs, it's a very readable technical manual.
Jul 25, Kate rated it it was amazing Shelves: Having suffered through a Martin Edwards authored book on Photoshop for a college class, I was thrilled to discover the clear and concise Scott Kelby. I picked this book up after "Photoshop for Lightroom Users" because I work primarily in LIghtroom and wanted a more in-depth knowledge of the program.
Scott is great. His books are clear, well laid out, and written with an eye toward functionality. He helps you understand when you would need a particular function and how to use it. He a Excellent. He also provides examples you can download and practice on.
This book is comprehensive but not mind numbingly dull like the Edwards book, dutifully recording every button and action one might take in PS. If you are a photographer and use Lightroom And if you shoot RAW, why wouldn't you downloading this book to get the best out of Adobe's powerful Lightroom is a no brainer. Dec 09, Lenore rated it it was amazing. I can not recommend this book strongly enough. Right about the time that the brain becomes overwhelmed with data, and there is an enormous amount of data in this book stretching from the needs of a novice to pro, Scott pops in with a grounding joke or short story for a littl I can not recommend this book strongly enough.
Right about the time that the brain becomes overwhelmed with data, and there is an enormous amount of data in this book stretching from the needs of a novice to pro, Scott pops in with a grounding joke or short story for a little comic relief.
Jan 03, Merrilee rated it it was amazing. An excellent book for anyone learning Lighroom 5! After reading it, I feel comfortable and confident using the program and know that the book is there as a guide if I forget how to do something. Well written and easy to follow. It was worth every penny!

Aug 19, Lesli Cohan added it. Great and concise information with plenty of tips. A must for any Lightroom user! Jan 18, Deb cambria rated it it was ok. Aug 20, Jason Upton rated it really liked it Shelves: Clear and easy introduction. May 01, Osner rated it it was ok. It's a good book, but it is informal.
Good for people who want to learn fast. I would like to read more technical details and better explanations. How and When to Do It. Chapter 11 — Slideshow: Creating Presentations of Your Work. Chapter 13 — The Big Print: Printing Your Photos.
Chapter 14 — The Layout: Choose Import, then navigate to the downloaded templates, select them all, and click the Import button. As mentioned in Chapter 14, you install the Develop module presets the same way. Chapter 15 — My Portrait Workflow: Bonus Chapter — Web Galleries: Getting Your Photos on the Web.
