Since the early days of digital photography, the photographic workflow has been anything but a flow A diverse set of tools for managing, developing, editing, tweaking, and printing images was available to digital photographers, but some of them were never designed to be used for photographic imaging With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Apple s new competitive program, Aperture , a new generation of software tools has arrived that have been designed from the ground up specifically for digital photographic post processing This book guides the new user through Photoshop Lightroom 1.2, which has power under the hood, and a little complexity than one would expect from its fairly straightforward user interface This powerful new program offers photographers the vast majority of the tools they need all in one place, providing new and easier to use tools for managing and processing their images With easy to follow, step by step instructions and full color illustrations, the authors demonstrate how to use Photoshop Lightroom to build an efficient photographic workflow from importing and organizing images through the development and editing phases all the way to building presentations for the web and in slideshows and finally, to the ultimate product the fine art print on paper....

Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom Reviews
I completely disagree with the positive feedbacks regarding this book for a variety of reasons. I took it fascinated by the "covers Version 1.2" note, thus suggesting a specialized "version 1.2" text, a most current book of them all, an advanced insider instruction to Lightroom. The dilemma about Lightroom is that it keeps changing from version to version. Users of this program know about its immaturity and stability issues. "Version 1.2" really sells in such conditions.
I get tired of Scott Kelby's humor but at least his books are readable, and useful. This book, well, I suppose all the information is there but I kept drifting off from the dull text and even duller PC-inspired graphics (they could at least use Mac screen grabs). I think the front cove pretty much sums up the book.
"Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom" ought to be on most photographers' short list of books to read about Adobe's newest image processing software.
I am a self-taught Photoshop hack. First started using it when version 3 came out (on a TON of 3.5' floppy disks). I have been able to use it enough to generate/ edit web images, scan prints, etc. It is grossly overpowered for what I use it for, but it's all I know and the company I work for is willing to pay for it. I am equally inept in my photographic workflow processes. I just take pictures, use my limited knowledge of Photoshop to get them to a point where I like the finished product, and go on my merry way. Until now.
