Total, this ebook is an effective creation to Lightroom. I picked it as much as learn sooner than i made a decision to buy this system. As a accomplished reference booklet it falls manner brief. for example the index is negative - many subject matters usually are not incorporated within the index but there's info supplied within the textual content. additionally, a few of the positive factors and features of Lightroom are lacking from this ebook. for instance, there isn't any point out of the "Painter" icon and what it does within the Library Module but he devotes 3 pages to displaying you the way to alter the identification Plate - like i have to see my identify rather than "Adobe Photoshop Lightroom."
Again, an outstanding creation yet now not a very worthwhile reference e-book.
