The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers
Author: Martin Evening
Digital photographers who have relied on Adobe Photoshop to work with their images have a new tool at their disposal: Adobe Lightroom. Designed from the ground up with digital photographers in mind, Lightroom offers powerful features in a streamlined interface that let photographers import, sort, and organize images. The Adobe Lightroom Book, written by professional photographer and best-selling author Martin Evening, describes Lightroom's features in detail and with photographer's in mind. As an established commercial and fashion photographer, Martin knows firsthand what photographers need for a more efficient workflow. He's been working with Lightroom from the beginning, providing feedback to Lightroom's public beta and monitoring the product's development. The Adobe Lightroom Book has been earning acclaim since it was first published as a "Rough Cut" book-in-process on Safari, a joint venture between Peachpit and O'Reilly Publishing. Martin has been updating the book's content as Lightroom evolves, giving users the most up-to-date information about this revolutionary product. As a result, Martin knows the software inside and out, making him the perfect author for what will become the definitive book about Adobe Lightroom. Photographers who routinely work with raw images will find Lightroom--and The Adobe Lightroom Book--an indispensable tool in their digital darkroom.
