The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers Summary

The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers - This is the eBook version of the printed book.

Since Lightroom 1.0 first launched, Scott's Kelby's The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers has been the world's #1 best-selling Lightroom book (it has been translated into a dozen different languages), and in this latest version for Lightroom 5, Scott uses his same award-winning, step-by-step, plain-English style and layout to make learning Lightroom easy and fun.

Scott doesn't just show you which sliders do what (every Lightroom book will do that). Instead, by using the following three simple, yet brilliant, techniques that make it just an incredible learning tool, this book shows you how to create your own photography workflow using Lightroom

Throughout the book, Scott shares his own personal settings and studiotested techniques. Each year he trains thousands of Lightroom users at his live seminars and through that he's learned what really works, what doesn't, and he tells you flat out which techniques work best, which to avoid, and why.

The entire book is laid out in a real workflow order with everything step by step, so you can begin using Lightroom like a pro from the start.

What really sets this book apart is the last chapter. This is where Scott dramatically answers his #1 most-asked Lightroom question, which is: "Exactly what order am I supposed to do things in, and where does Photoshop fit in?" You'll see Scott's entire start-to-finish Lightroom 5 workflow and learn how to incorporate it into your own workflow.

Plus, this book includes a downloadable collection of some of the hottest Lightroom Develop module presets to give you a bunch of amazing effects with just one click!

Scott knows first-hand the challenges today's digital photographers are facing, and what they want to learn next to make their workflow faster, easier, and more fun. He has incorporated all of that into this major update for Lightroom 5.

It's the first and only book to bring the whole process together in such a clear, concise, and visual way. Plus, the book includes a special chapter on integrating Adobe Photoshop seamlessly right into your workflow, and you'll also learn some of Scott's latest Photoshop portrait retouching techniques and special effects, which take this book to a whole new level. There is no faster, more straight-to-the-point, or more fun way to learn Lightroom than with this groundbreaking book.

The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers Review

  • Absolutely download the sample first!

    I bought this ebook without viewing the sample. Big mistake! While it is written in typical Scott Kelby fashion, it is formatted completely different from his Lightroom 4 ebook, or any of his other books. It comes up in two facing pages on a single screen, in either portrait or landscape, depending on how you hold the iPad, but the print is too small to read in portrait. So, you say, simply rotate to landscape and motor on? Not so fast. It still presents in two-page format and is still too small to read comfortably. So you then have to "pinch" to expand it and it pops into single-page format, but you have to keep the iPad in landscape mode to be able to read it comfortably. And when you tap to change pages, it does a weird flip-flop that will drive you nuts eventually. I like most of Scott Kelby's books, but not this one. Wish I could return it.
  • This is not an ebook!

    This a a sequence of photocopies of pages, two in a frame. It looks awful, doesn't fill the screen, nothing like the Ben Long book on digital photography, the latter being a real book. Wish I knew how to get my money back. It's really terrible
