Sean McCormack’s Lightroom 2 Made Easy book has just gone on sale recently.
Sean writes: “I guess it helps when the publisher tells you, but my Lightroom book is finally out! It’s not listed as available on Amazon.com, but is on Amazon.co.uk for a measly £7.49 (50% off list). It’s so cheap you should buy 2 :)”

The true stars of Lighroom 2 are the localized adjustment tools. For the first time, photographers can now edit their raw files using the adjustment brush and gradient filter tools. These allow you to apply all kinds of adjustments such as: darkening, lightening, coloring or sharpening an image. The following extract is taken from my new book in which I show how to work with the adjustment brush and auto-masking feature.

This post comes from Chicago where I am working with Jeff Schewe on a joint Focal Press book project to do with Photoshop. Meanwhile, print copies of the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 book were delivered to the studio last week, so now that Lightroom 2 has been officially announced, I can reveal that the Lightroom 2 book print run is complete and shipped to the main warehouse, ready for distribution.
The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 book contains 624 pages and has been fully updated for all the major changes since version 1.0. I’ll be publishing some extracts from the book here on Lightroom-news over the next few weeks and you’ll also be able to read some extra article extracts over on Peachpit.com. You can also read some of the back story to the cover photo shoot as well as a video podcast that George Jardine made earlier this year.

Earlier, in March this year, George Jardine from Adobe and Jeff Schewe came over to London to help document a fashion photo shoot that I shot specifically for the next revision of my Lightroom book. The background to this is that the publisher, Peachpit and myself thought it would be a good idea to carry out a studio photo shoot in which I could use the photographs that were taken on the day to illustrate a complete Lightroom workflow, using the latest version of the program. As well as capturing some great looking images, I also hoped to find a new cover image for the book, and in addition to this, Adobe have also requested to use some of these pictures as demo assets for Lightroom and other Adobe product presentations. Incidentally, the finished book will now be ready to go on sale as soon as Lightroom 2 officially ships.
You can find out more about the shoot itself by checking out the video George Jardine made while he was in London, which shows the progress of the shoot from concept, through to model casting and creating the finished looks. There is also a separate video podcast that George produced which shows me going through the pictures at the editing stage and discussing which shots worked best and why.

This is a story we created for Photoshopnews, but as you will see, there were also a few books about Lightroom and others to do with digital photography.
“As we approach the end of 2007 we wanted to ask some of the leading figures in the Photoshop community which books they had found most inspiring and in the case of authors, which books they had written were they most proud of. We got some interesting and quite varied responses. So if you are still stuck for ideas about what to get a Photoshop geek for Christmas, here are some reading tips from the experts.
To keep this article seasonal we didn’t want it to be entirely about Photoshop and digital imaging. We did also ask people to nominate a book for recreational reading. After all, the holiday season is a time for relaxing and leaving work to one side! To help you find out more about the books recommended here we have created links to Amazon.com for all the books featured here.”

Scott Kelby today anounced a Lightroom 1.1 update kit for The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers.
Yippie! It’s up!!! (I guess it actually went up yesterday, but I didn’t get the exact URL for the download until this morning. Sorry ’bout that).
Remember: this update was created exclusively for people who actually own my book “The Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers” and I created this 1.1 Update Kit as an added benefit for those specific people (whom I dearly love, by the way).

My favorite thing about the release of Lightroom 1.1? We’re going to press this week with Mikkel’s beautiful book, Photoshop Lightroom Adventure. And we’re doing so knowing that it will be the most up-to-date Lightroom book out there. Over the past few months, Mikkel has been painstakingly updating the manuscript for the changes anticipated in version 1.1, a monumental task. Not only did he have to diligently monitor and document all the great new features that were being added for LR 1.1, but he had to reshoot most of the nearly one thousand images in the book to reflect the new interface.

The Camera Calibration panel in Lightroom can be used (with a little help from Photoshop) to calibrate your digital captures to get the most accurate color. But that’s not all. If you play around with the sliders you will find that you can also use the Camera Calibration panel to do the very opposite of what it is meant for and create some unusual coloring effects.
