Decent But Could Be Better

  • Oct 30, 2008
'Managing Your Photographic Workflow with Photoshop Lightroom' is a decent book but my biggest complaint is this is a book about using a Photoshop product for improving image quality and the images in this book are washed out and grainy. I don't know if it's the printing style used or the images themselves, but when you have a crystal clear cover that jumps out at you and then the content within leaves a lot to be desired... well that's just no good.

Overall the book does what I would expect. It shows you the basics of using Photoshop Lightroom, how to get pictures in, what you can do with them, etc etc. This book should improve your workflow and streamline the image editing process but it's not a home run that I would expect.

About this book


Since the early days of digital photography, the photographic "workflow" has been anything but a flow. A diverse set of tools for managing, developing, editing, tweaking, and printing images was available to digital photographers, but some of them were never designed to be used for photographic imaging. With Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (and Apple's new competitive program, Aperture), a new generation of software tools has arrived that have been designed from the ground up specifically for digital photographic post-processing.

This book guides the new user through Photoshop Lightroom 1.2, which has more power under the hood, and a little more complexity than one would expect from its fairly straightforward user interface. This powerful new program offers photographers the vast majority of the tools they need all in one place, providing new and easier to use tools for managing and processing their images.

With easy to follow, step-by-step instructions and full-color illustrations, the authors demonstrate how to use Photoshop Lightroom to build an efficient photographic workflow; from importing and organizing images; through the development and editing phases; all the way to building presentations for the web and in slideshows; and finally, to the ultimate product--the fine art print on paper.
