In Detail

Adobe Lightroom: A Complete Course and Compendium of Features is your guide to using Adobe Lightroom for importing, organizing, editing, and outputting your images. Whether you’re keywording your most recent shoot, organizing your photo library, or developing and printing your best five-star images, Lightroom is the tool for you—and this book will teach you what you need to know.

First, with a complete Course that includes a set of projects and lessons created by photographer and author Jeff Carlson, you will learn the procedures needed to use Lightroom effectively and professionally. Dozens of lessons are included that can be applied to any number of photographs or situations you’ll encounter in Lightroom. Through these step-by-step lessons, you’ll be exposed to all of Lightroom’s features in practical contexts and its best practices for an optimal workflow.

Then, for greater depth of knowledge and subsequent reference, you’ll use the Compendium to uncover more of the “how” and “why” of Lightroom. With each topic easy to access, you can find and explore all of Lightroom’s key features and concepts in depth. With cross references between the Course and Compendium, the two parts of the book complement each other perfectly. Best of all, when the lessons in the Course are done, the Compendium will continue to serve for months and years to come.
