Default Help with Lightroom

Does anyone know of a tutorial book or DVD that I could purchase that would improve my learning curve with LR? I have been using the program for only a couple of months and would like to improve quicker than I seem to be progressing. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks very much.

Mark

I've bought "The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 Book" from Adobe Press. For me it was very helpfull. Just by reading it and as a reference manual.

Try Software training online-tutorials for Adobe, Microsoft, Apple & more

They have video tutorials for Lightroom, Photoshop, and many other software packages. I think it's $20-25/month and you can cancel at any time. I've used it and was very happy with it.

I went through this same process just a few months back. This is what I found.

These are both good books.



The first one is a Scott Kelby book. He is good and generally will give step by step directions on what to do. It is fairly specific to selected tasks.

The second book is by Martin Evening. His book is more of a text book and goes through the process of showing what each thing does in Lightroom. This is the book that I bought as it just seemed to have more information in it.

I just went into Barnes and Noble and sat down and compared the two of them. Either book will be good, it just depends on what you are looking for and what type of book that you may learn more from.

And just when you start to understand how everything in Lightroom 2 works, a new version shows up.... Adobe Labs - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (beta version)

Before you buy, here's some sources you might try:

Free Lightroom Tutorials - Adobe Lightroom Tips & Tricks | PhotoshopSupport.com
Free Adobe Lightroom Tutorials | Layers Magazine
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom tutorials by Julieanne Kost
Adobe Lightroom Tutorial (a.k.a. my dirty little secret) | Note
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Tutorials by Michael Tapes (mostly version 1 tuts)
Adobe Design Center: New tutorials and articles on After Effects, Lightroom, Acrobat and InDesign

They aren't all inclusive, but you can still learn a lot from them.
