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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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! ;-)
