Since Lightroom first launched, Scott Kelby's The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers has been the world's #1 best-selling Lightroom book. In this latest version for Lightroom 5, Scott uses his same step-by-step, plain-English style and layout to make learning Lightroom easy and fun. Scott doesn't just show students which sliders do what, and he doesn't just cover the newest features of Lightroom (though, of course, he does that, too, with discussions of the Advanced Healing Brush, Smart Previews, Upright, and the Radial Gradient). Instead, by using the following three simple yet brilliant techniques that make it just an incredible learning tool, this book shows them how to create their own photography workflow using Lightroom:

  •  Scott shares his own personal settings and studio-tested techniques. He trains thousands of Lightroom users every year, and knows firsthand what really works and what doesn't.

  •  The entire book is laid out in a real workflow order with everything step by step, so students 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?"

  • The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 Book for Digital Photographers is the first and only book to bring the whole process together in such a clear, concise, and visual way.
