I use a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.6.8. The DVD would not load and finally ejected. I tried my wife's computer running 10.7.5 and it loaded as expected.

I had been using LR3 for nearly 2 years and had become pretty facile at using it. Thus, I did not need LR basics but, rather, an updating of what was new. This Crash Course did a good job, I think, of that. Matt Kloskowski is clear in what he says.

Given that I did the Crash Course about 2 weeks ago, I do not remember any specific details of what was learned. However, I remember that there were a few items in the develop module, for which there are 5 videos, that were particularly interesting and useful to me; it's just I cannot recall what they were!

I am new to printing and so was interested in the discussion of the print module, which I found that to be helpful. Subsequent to listening to that, I searched out further information on soft proofing and the use of LR4 in doing that. The Adobe forum on that is worth reading.

Difficult to decide on the "star" rating. It really depends on the users background in going into it. Thus, for some it could be 5, while for others it could be a 1. I gave it a 4 because it was well done and had a few useful points for me.

This came free when I purchased the Lightroom4 and I am glad it did. I would have been extremely disappointed if I would have paid anything more than $5 for this.

This came free when I purchased the Lightroom4 and I am glad it did. I would have been extremely disappointed if I would have paid anything more than $5 for this.
Matt covers the basics and lays it out where it is easy to follow and that is why I gave it a 3 star. I think he has useful information however I just feel all that information can be obtained from Youtube or other peoples online blogs.
If you really need a tutorial on Lightroom 4 then just type in Lightroom 4 Tutorial in YouTube and then thank me for saving you $50.
Hope this review helped.

    This DVD was great to get me going in Lightroom 4. It touches upon all of the mayor features of the program. By the time it was done I was confident I could import my photos, and start editing them to just they way I liked it.

    It also showed how you can go to Photoshop, edit a picture and come back to Lightroom.

    Highly recommend it to anyone.

          I watched it. The info can be found on line, if you look. The video quality is pretty poor. The guy is confident in what he's talking about. A little bit of this, a little bit of that. Don't be afraid to play with the settings. Lots of tips, little organization. It's easy to watch, informative enough, but I'm glad I didn't get it for full price.

            Never having used Lightroom, I was happy to find this tutorial on sale. Just like the title says, it provides a great "crash course" in the basic operations and features of the software. Though the instructions are very easy to follow and grew my confidence, I was a bit bummed to find that the disc wouldn't play on my TV; only slightly inconvenient to practice along while you watch.

                                  I really liked the product. I had been using Lightroom 4 for a month when I received the training DVD and it helped in several areas. I have yet to buy a book on Lightroom so this was my only training and it really showed me a lot of "how to". The price is the only reason for the 4 star rating.

                                    The program has been very helpful in learning to use Lightroom.

                                          I had played with LR for 30 days, basically blind feeling my way around and then bought the software and this tutorial. It was super easy to follow, and explained things I wouldn't have discovered on my own for some time. Definitely helped me along.

                                          This DVD is exactly what it says. A Crash Course into Lightroom: It might be too basic if you are already familiar with some of the features you find in similar programs so you might want to jump into more advanced lessons. It works for what it says it does though.
