By Conrad J. Obregon VINE VOICE on September 15, 2015
Format: Paperback
It's not often that the author of a technical photography book competes with himself. But that's what Scott Kelby may appear to be doing, since he's already written a Lightroom book for another publisher.

This book is a tip book that lists questions one might have while working in Lightroom, like, how do I change the background color of a photobook? The book is organized into broad chapters like "How to Use the Brushes" and "How to Create Special Effects" (although some Lightroom users might not consider creating an HDR image a special effect). In case you are not sure which chapter to look in there is a good index. The book is fairly thorough and covers most (but not all) of the problems a user might encounter.

I usually don't like tip books, but this one appears better than most, since a good number of the problems one might encounter are listed. One could almost learn to use Lightroom using this book, but I've found that tutorial books, like Kelby's other Lightroom book, with practical exercises on downloaded files are better as a pedagogical matter. Instead this seems to me the kind of book you keep near the computer for those times when you forget how to do something. (Of course, if your tutorial book has a good index, that should do the job as well).

I also found that some of the author's explanations were a little skimpy. For example he suggested that if one didn't want to manually search the list of keywords to find the one you are looking for, one could use the Library filter bar. I find it much easier to use the Keyword List Panel entry bar.

I was a bit shocked at Kelby's disdain for the Slideshow function of Lightroom.

This is a great go to book when you are working in Lightroom and need a quick example on how to accomplish a task. Scott said that the book should be used as a reference book and that you should not read it from start to finish. I am enjoying reading the book cover to cover. It is fun to try some new techniques out along the way. I have come across some tricks that I definitely will be using in Lightroom from now on. Thanks for another great book Scott.

Great little reference book for Lightroom. I do have Scotts more in depth books on Lightroom, but I have to say this little book stays by my computer so when I need to do something I'm not familiar with I can just look it up. Scott is brief and to the point on the task you need to do so you can get what you need done quickly. Glad I purchased it.

Like every book on photography written by Scott, this one is a joy to read. As a freelance photographer, I am amazed how he is always able to make sense of something complicated in the simplest of ways. And more importantly……..there's always a wow factor at the end of every chapter…I was surprised as how many new things I learnt in the last hour reading this book. I would suggest this for anyone who owns LR…and even if you think you know it well….you will still learn something new.

This book is well written with plenty of tips on how to do the different things in LightRoom.

As with any Scott Kelby book, there is great information and it's well organized. If there was such a thing as a LightRoom bible, this would be it.

I admit that my learning curve when I switched to Lightroom has been rather steep. This book has made a lot of difference in my depth of understanding in the many uses of Lightroom. I actually LIKE the program now.

Use this book as a well-organized, visually attractive, quick reference tool. The 12 chapters each describe 10 to 20 tips in the use of Lightroom's range of features. The focus is not on the basics but on those features you likely may have done before but can't quite remember how you did it three months ago. Think: "How do I save my layout so I can print it again?" or "How do I reset my (effects) sliders to zero?" situations.

For those of us who find Kelby's prose to be irritatingly chatty (you either love it or hate it), one of the advantages of this book is that the quick reference format focuses the material, keeping that verbiage to a minimum.

"How Do I Do That in Lightroom?" is an excellent guide for those who want to learn Lightroom. Step by step, with clear instructions, Scott explains how to use the software. I think every question you may have about Lightroom, and "how to" is answered in this e-book. Even those familiar with Lightroom, may find it helpful. Some features are hidden in the Lightroom and you may not even know they are there. Or you simply can't figure out how to do something in the Lightroom. This book is perfect to help you out. It shows the technical parts and shortcuts or just how things are done. It is a great helper at your fingertips.

The book covers many topics (Print, Slideshow, Organizing, Importing, etc.). It is very easy to find what you are looking for. Everything is explained clearly, without difficult terms. All images in the book show which button to press, what settings to choose.

This is such an excellent guide with a lot of knowledge. I really recomend it! Be aware though! After you finish all chapters you may become a Master of the Lightroom! ;-)
