Adobe Photoshop Lightroom was designed from the ground up with digital photographers in mind, offering powerful editing features in a streamlined interface that lets photographers import, sort, and organize images. This completely updated bestseller, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book, was also written with photographers in mind. Author Martin Evening describes features in Lightroom 3 in detail from a photographer’s perspective. As an established commercial and fashion photographer, Martin knows firsthand what photographers need for an efficient workflow. He has also been working with Lightroom from the beginning, monitoring the product’s development and providing valued feedback to Adobe. As a result, Martin knows the software inside and out, from image selection to image editing to image management. In this book you’ll learn how to:

• Work efficiently with images shot in the raw or JPEG format
• Import photographs with ease and sort them according to your workflow
• Create and manage a personal image library
• Apply tonal adjustments to multiple images quickly
• Integrate Lightroom with Adobe Photoshop
• Export images for print or Web as digital contact sheets or personal portfolios
• Make the most of new features in Lightroom 3, such as automatic lens correction and improved noise reduction

Photographers will find Lightroom 3—and The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 Book—indispensable tools in their digital darkrooms.

“With Martin’s expert guidance, you’ll soon find that you have precisely the tools you need to turn your concentration back where it belongs—on making better pictures!”
—George Jardine, Lightroom instructor

“As a photographer himself, Martin Evening knows what tools photographers need to realize their creative vision. In this book, he shows not only how Adobe Photoshop Lightroom works but also why it will become an essential part of any photographer’s workflow.”
—Greg Gorman, photographer

Cet ouvrage de Martin Evening est un excellent guide pour découvrir et faire l'apprentissage des très nombreux outils mis à la disposition du photographe par Lightroom 3. Ce guide qui aborde tous les aspects techniques de l'utilisation de ce logiciel est une nécessité pour qui veut aborder sérieusement Lightroom 3 sans perdre un temps précieux en se contentant d'essayer de le maîtriser au moyen de la seule approche intuitive. La suggestion que fait l'auteur, à la page iv, d'étudier les divers chapitres dans l'ordre est tout à fait à propos. Le texte et les illustrations se complètent parfaitement.

This book by Martin Evening is an excellent guide for anyone wanting to discover and learn how to use the numerous tools offered by Lightroom 3 to the photographer.

It is preferable to follow the order of the chapters, as suggested by the author at page iv. The text and the illustrations complete each other perfectly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible knowledge base book June 23 2011
This is by far the best Lightroom book I have read. I have compared it to Scott Kelby Book and perhaps it is his writing style, but I found it left me with a "then what?" hanging. THis book takes you from the beginning of installing LR through the workflow of what every tab in LR does and how it can be customized. This book has taken its place beside my keyboard on my desk. The only thing that I do not like, is the screen prints, and hints are all Mac, I am a windows user. LR is identical in both Mac and windows, and the shortcuts use ALT instead of Command. but it is still annoying for me anyways. I would recommend this book to anyone that really wants to know how LR works. This is not a "here is a sample photo, and here is how I would fix it, now try that with yours, book". This is "Here is how LR works, here are its options, a couple of examples, now you know book, go have fun and enjoy taking pictures book"
