Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book for Digital Photographers (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
I purchased this book because my workflow was terrible! I used one program to import photos, another one to edit photos, and yet another one to resize them and add my watermark for uploading to the web. I initially downloaded LR2 to reduce the apps I used from 3 and sometimes 4 to just one. However, I found it intimidating, so I stopped using it and resumed my old workflow. When LR3 came out, it received so many positive reviews, I decided to try it again.
I purchased this book during my trial evaluation of LR. I'm only on page 75. Yet, I learned so much that I purchased LR3 and already revamped my workflow. You can tailor so many aspects of this application and this book guides you through the process. I especially like how Scott takes you step by step of a typically workflow. He does not jump around showing you trick after trick. Instead, he gives you a model on how to work and you can modify it to fit your needs.
When I first used LR2, I didn't understand the different modules and what their purpose was. He helped clarify that for me and I see how I can use them as well. This is a great book and people spend hundreds of dollars to learn this information. It's a must have!
