This book is aimed at mid-level Lightroom users (preferably with modest familiarity with the basics) who want to sharpen their skills, get answers about the pro's and con's of the 64-bit environment, or gain insight into the under-the-hood why, what and how of the software. The book is equally useful to Window or Mac users, clearly illustrated with screen shots of pertinent settings where the operating systems part ways (as in the file system).
Although the author takes a valiant stab at familiaring newbies with the essentials, the very depth of the book (eg, 5 pages on tethered camera shooting) may be a bit overwhelming for a second chapter; reference to an advanced chapter addressing tethered camera imports would have eased that sense of being out of your depth.
In short: THE ultimate reference guide to Lightroom 3; newbies might feel a bit intimidated by the detail - modest comfort with the software helps you in getting the most out of this book. Well worth the price.
This is no quick read, as it is jam-packed with not only step-by-step instructions but also all of the detail one could ever digest about how and why things work the way they do. Prepare to take good notes as you read, unless you have a 200 GB brain.
When Adobe announced the third version of Lightroom 3 software I gave it one more try. Huge difference ! With inclusion of camera profiles and a better RAW engine, differences between NX2 and this software are now minimal. So I bought it and used ever since because of better speed and catalog management features that makes it invaluable IMO. One drawback: a slight magenta cast thrown in shadows, but this is easily corrected via camera profiling (read on).
However, with power comes no-knowledge so I had to get myself some reference reading. Thus I bought this book some months ago and now, after I have finised reading it in detail, I think a proper review is mandatory. This is a perfect companion for your Lightroom steps, so I recommend it within my heart.
The book is dedicated to Bruce Fraser and I was impressed by the quality of the content within the 649 pages (print- and information-wise). The book does not come with a DVD, but is full of valuable examples, workflows, commented processing steps and updated content for Lightroom 3.
