Can't really remember much about this one...the most notable thing for me is that I chose to purchase the Martin Evening LR book (The Adobe PS LR 2 Book). I'm pretty sure that means I found some use in Kelby's book, but it didn't have what I was looking for. Helpful, huh?

An easy to use manual for Adobe Lightroom. I would pretty much recommend anything from Scott Kelby.

Lightroom book : Mr. Kelby writes a good book for a rookie to start learning a software package. Very informative, interesting and funny. Please keep writing books.

Good book for covering the use of Lightroom 1.x. A little bit long winded and too much text wasted on the author's brand of humour.

The whole thing could be shortened to about 2/3 it's current size with judicious editing and nothing important would have been lost from it.

But over all I would definitely recommend this book for people getting into Lightroom 1.x. I believe there is an updated version of the book available for newer versions of the software.

Even though Lightroom has undergone several updates since this book's printing, the book still remains relevant.

Kelby writes in a very unorthodox style... you have to read EVERYTHING in order to pickup all his tips. He tries to make it interesting though, just too much work for when I'm trying to go after the "nuggets", otherwise a 4 star for sure.

LOVE photography and constantly trying to learn more about it. I have Adobe Photoshop Lightroom-a new software to help you organize, store, edit photos. So far so good. I think most Photoshop software should come with a live-in tutor though. Huge learning curve.

Nice reference book. If you don't know anything about LR Scott will walk you through the different features and function. I've used LR for a few months now and learned quite a bit from video tutorials and this book gave me a few more nice tips and tricks.

Need to learn Lightroom? Don't just want to rely on Presets? This book is for you! Kelby is the best photography teacher I've ever had!

Recommends it for: Lightroom users, digital photographers
Photoshop Lightroom is a powerful tool, and takes a little reading to discover some of the fancier features. This book does a good job of spoon feeding you the information.

I am a PhotoShop kind of photo manipulator, apparently. Excellent info, but meh. I am not yet converted to Lightroom. (I have tried to use and like it, but prefer Photoshop!)

One of the best Lightroom guides I have read. Follow the book and you will get many tips, and see the steps along the way. The author is one of the premier experts in the area of Lightroom.
