Format: Paperback
"Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom" ought to be on most photographers' short list of books to read about Adobe's newest image processing software.

The book resembles many of the other books on Lightroom in that it leads you through the five parts of Lightroom, including cataloging, adjusting the image, creating a slide show, printing and creating a web site. It shows you what the sliders do and how to manipulate an image to improve it and send it to a useful output. What makes this different is the audience at which it aims.

The book is not aimed at the novice who has to be taken through the process step by step, like Scott Kelby's "The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers, (Voices That Matter)" (and for those who might have been put off by Kelby's sophomoric sense of humor, it's deadly serious, without a single joke.) Instead it's aimed at people who have some experience with image processing programs, like Photoshop. When the authors discuss curves they don't tell you the benefits of tonal adjustment or what a curve is. Instead they tell you how Lightroom's targeted adjustment tool, which is something other software doesn't offer, can ease the job of adjusting curves. On the other hand, sometimes the authors are just a little too spare. They don't even mention the range sliders in tonal curves.

When Lightroom offers several different approaches to a task the authors tell you what their preference is, which can be quite useful. On the other hand I sometimes disagreed with them. For example, they advocate applying keywords to images on import.

I completely disagree with the positive feedbacks regarding this book for a variety of reasons. I took it fascinated by the "covers Version 1.2" note, thus suggesting a specialized "version 1.2" text, a most current book of them all, an advanced insider instruction to Lightroom. The dilemma about Lightroom is that it keeps changing from version to version. Users of this program know about its immaturity and stability issues. "Version 1.2" really sells in such conditions.

Another reason to pick this book was that I like to read the essays from Outback Photo and the FotoEspresso Online Magazine by the same author. But the reality with this particular book is different:

1) Too short to really provide any add-on value to the standard Adobe's manual, and to the many web-zines. 200 pages, minus approx 50 *not* about Lightroom at all, make this book too short to cover any advanced issues in the 5 main modules of Lightroom. This book is virtually just as brief and insufficient, as is the PDF file provided with the Lightroom by Adobe.

2) Tries to please everybody at the risk of not satisfying anybody, to quote the great Donald Knuth from one of his forewords. For example, do you really need to buy a specialized "version 1.2" Lightroom book to learn about what is a Jpeg and what is a RAW file? Yes, its true! This thin booklet spends a few pages to tell you revelations that Jpeg has different levels of compressions, and, yes, you guess it: You should use the lowest compression for highest quality.

3) Digresses into usage of other software and/or hardware. Do you really need whopping 3 full pages with screen shots from a Huey screen calibration software? No, you surely do not need that, a product flyer and a self guiding menu will do it!

Format: Paperback
I am a self-taught Photoshop hack. First started using it when version 3 came out (on a TON of 3.5' floppy disks). I have been able to use it enough to generate/ edit web images, scan prints, etc. It is grossly overpowered for what I use it for, but it's all I know and the company I work for is willing to pay for it. I am equally inept in my photographic workflow processes. I just take pictures, use my limited knowledge of Photoshop to get them to a point where I like the finished product, and go on my merry way. Until now.

Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom is helping change my bad habits. Originally written to cover Lightroom 1.2, the processes are still applicable to 1.41, the latest version I am using. I had seen Lightroom and sort of dismissed it as just more $$ to spend until I started reading this book. Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom has given me insight into using the tools contained in Lightroom and how using them will affect my images. At just over 200 pages, this book is full of images and practical examples. I used to edit my images exclusively in Photoshop. Now I do most of my post processing in Lightroom, exporting the results to be uploaded into flickr, iStockphoto, or burned to CD. I doubt I would have changed my habits were it not for this book. Needless to say, it is highly recommended if you have been curious about using Lightroom.

I have only Scott Kelby book to compare with Juergen Gulbins and Uwe Steinmuller book. Both have their advantages. Managing Your Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom is a simple with book with straight forward easy to follow examples. Kelby book has mare examples for advance uses of Lightroom. Workflow makes a good reference book to use for every day use. Kelby book gives good advance step by step procedures for different images.

I will continue to use both. Like most of Kelby books his humor detracts from the information. Maybe he should write a joke book.
