Photoshop Lightroom: From Snapshots to Great Shots, published by Peachpit Press, is an expert guide written by a photographer for photographers. This fully illustrated book demonstrates the fundamentals needed to create an efficient photography workflow.
Author Jeff Revell walks you down his entire workflow showing how to make adjustments to photos and complete the vision for a shot, a process that begins the moment he picks up the camera and ends with the final edit in Lightroom. Photography students will learn key software techniques to organize and improve their images, including: importing and tracking images using keywords, filters, and Smart Collections, using the selective adjustment tools to improve image quality, enhancing images with gradients, vignettes, and Dodge and Burn; creating a photo book, printing contact sheets or a picture package, and sharing images via email, slideshows, or an online web gallery.
