5.0 out of 5 stars Focused on Efficiency, August 20, 2009
This review is from: Inside Lightroom 2: The serious photographer's guide to Lightroom efficiency (Paperback)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Yes I'm giving this five stars (though the editors did miss a few minor things).

Why? Because Mr. Earney accomplishes what he sets out to do, which is focus on Lightroom efficiency.

Lightroom has matured and become more robust. There have been a lot of improvements, as well as new features added to this program. I know a lot of photographers who used to do the bulk of their post processing with Photoshop, and now do more than 90% of their post using only Lightroom.

This is due to the product improvements. This book focuses in on these changes, outlining what's new, and what's changed. All with the goal of helping to improve the photographer's efficiency in working with Lightroom.

Mr. Earney touches upon several things that I think are important, such as the use of DNG, color management, exporting from Lightroom, Post Crop Vignettes, Camera Profiles, Gradient Filter Masks, Adjustment Brushes, the Lightroom SDK, File Structures, Catalog Settings, working with Previews, Importing, Geocoding, Collections, using the Historgram, 16 bit printing, Presets and editing them, and Metadata.

The author also takes the time to outline what was left out of this release. In other words the most requested items during the public beta that didn't make the final cut.

The last chapter gives the reader a great list of resources for additional information.

This is not a book for the beginner, but rather for those who have been using Lightroom and are familiar with how it works and want to really dig in to get the most out of this great program.

This book is a resource and reference for me, not a how to. Well done!
