    Comments about PhotoShop Cafe DVD-ROM: Lightroom 4 for Digital Photographers:

    I have just started using the DVD and so far it has been very helpful. Looking forward to finishing the course material. The only negative is it goes by so fast that sometimes it is hard to grasp all the concepts. For a slow learner like me a book would be better. Then I could move at my pace.
