The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book by Martin Evening will be shipping soon. In the meantime, through special arrangement with Martin and his publisher, PhotoshopNews has a free PDF download of Chapter 1. (click HERE to download-4.6MB PDF)
The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book describes Lightroom’s features in detail and with photographers in mind. Photographers who routinely work with raw (and even jpg & tiff) images will find Lightroom–and The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book–an indispensable tool in their digital darkroom.
Mark Hamburg, Adobe Fellow & Lightroom founder says of Martin’s book: “For a product that had simplicity as one of its goals, a book of this heft might seem to suggest that we went astray somewhere. The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book, however, is filled with useful information, extensive imagery, and great examples that really explore the power of Lightroom while maintaining a clarity of presentation that had me routinely thinking ‘I couldn’t have said it better myself.’”
