A 4.5 Hour Multi-Segment Training Video with Michael Reichmann and Jeff Schewe
Though Lightroom has been available as a free beta download for many months, the shipping product, Version 1.0, is quite different in many respects from the beta releases available up to now. Many new features and capabilities have been added, a few have been removed, and the workflow has been enhanced and altered.
During 2006 Michael and I published two Lightroom Tutorial DVDs; one for Beta 1 and another for Beta 3. These were extremely popular, and helped many people get up-to-speed with this exciting new program. Now, with the release of Version 1.0, there is the need for a completely new and comprehensive video tutorial.

About The Tutorial
Our The Luminous Landscape Adobe Lightroom V1.0 Tutorial is comprehensive and in-depth. It consists of more than 4.5 hours of live video training. The price is just US $14.95. (See below for a special time-limited discount offer).
This is exclusively available as a Hi-Res Video Download. No shipping costs, no import taxes or duties. No delays.
Because of the huge scope of this project, and the fact that a final user interface was only available to us in early January for filming, this tutorial is being published in serial form as the various segments are completed by our editing team.
When you purchase the Lightroom V1.0 Tutorial you will immediately be able to download the Introductory section which runs 17 minutes in length. Then on Sunday, Feb. 25 Parts One and Two of the Library module, which run 35 minutes and 29 minutes respectively will appear for download.
Roughly once a week from then onwards a new segment of the tutorial will be come available for download until all 4.5 hours have been posted. This is an excellent way for you to learn Lightroom in-depth, biting off manageable sections one at a time and having an opportunity to practice new skills between downloads. The availability of each now chapter will be announced on The Luminous Landscape What’s New page and like all of the Hi-Res download content will be available for download 3 times over a 3 month period.
This live video tutorial covers Lightroom in depth, with the type of detail and focus that only two of the program’s internal alpha and beta testers can provide. We look at each of the program’s modules – Library – Develop – Slideshow – Print – Web – and explore their features and functions in detail. Our orientation is toward workflow, which is what Lightroom excels at. You’ll learn all of the keyboard shortcuts, and how to take best advantage of each of Lightroom’s numerous tools.
If you’re the type of person that learns best by a live demonstration and hands-on approach, rather than from a book, then The Luminous Landscape Adobe Lightroom V1.0 Tutorial is for you.
Special Offer – 20% Off Until Feb 25
If you purchase The Luminous Landscape Adobe Lightroom V1.0 Tutorial before Sunday, 25 Feb., you will only pay US $11.96, rather than the regular price from then onward of $14.95. Just as Adobe is discounting LightRoom for the first few months, as a statement of their appreciation, we too are offering this discount as a way of thanking you for your support and patience.
Just in case you wondered why Feb. 25, and not sooner – it’s because Michael, Chris and I will be offline, and in Antarctica until the evening of the 24th. Since Lightroom V1.0 is due to ship some time before Feb. 28, when the Beta expires, we believe that this timing works out well for everyone.
Note that because this tutorial is a Hi-Res download there are no shipping costs, import taxes, or duties.
