    Comments about Adobe Press Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Classroom in a Book:

    I have read thru some of the chapters quickly to get an overview of lightroom using this book. It seems pretty self explanatory so far. I am now going back and starting to go thru the individual lessons one by one, chapter by chapter. I have downloaded all the lessons from the "peachpit" website using the key code provided with the book without any problems. I am in the process of starting the first lesson. Until I complete most of the lessons I cannot give a complete review yet.But like I said, so far so good!

          Walks you through the process to learn Lightroom. I wish it would use an arrow to illustrate where to find the controls more often. Since I am new to enhanched photo processing, I can use all the help I can get.
          I would recommend this book.

          • Learning Lightroom Basics

          Comments about Adobe Press Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Classroom in a Book:

          I shoot all my photography in raw mode and Lightroom is one of the best software products to manage and manipulate images.

          This book provides good instruction on the features of Lightroom and offers hands-on practice to learn the resources of the software. It contains sample photos that can be downloaded so that instructions can be practiced and compared against known outcomes. I have found this to be the most valuable attribute of the Classroom in a Book media series.

          Do not expect any instruction on how to create art. The creative process is left to the reader / photographer in all of the Classroom in a Book series.
