Lightroom® Classic Made Easy version 13 is now available on Amazon.com. It is the most complete, detailed Lightroom book available. Every panel of all seven Lightroom® modules are discussed along with a suggested workflow for each module. It not only contains the simple neat Lightroom® tricks I’ve been posting on YouTube®, but goes far beyond the usual basics of using Lightroom®. Included in the last version was the new Content Aware Erase tool in the Healing tool, but also the Masking panel with some new AI choices added to it along with some new features such as the ability to select objects. New in version 13 is the Lens Blur panel and the Color Mixer panel, along with some support for High Dynamic Range displays. The book is written as a “how to” book made to sit by the computer with the photographer and guide them step by step through all the procedures and techniques in Lightroom® Classic version 13, using screen shots and bullet points. As the name implies, I’ve tried to make it easy and have paid particular attention to the complaints I’ve often heard about Lightroom®. That means I’ve spent a lot of time on importing, organizing and finding images in the Library module and also on how to reorganize the catalog. The Develop module has many suggestions for bringing out the best a RAW image and now with advances in camera sensors capturing more detail there is more detail to be brought out of a RAW image. Some detailed procedures and techniques have never before been published in a Lightroom® Classic book or video tutorial. I hope it will make your use ofLightroom® Classic easier and more fun.
The book is now available in a hard copy and will soon be available in a Kindle version on Amazon.com.
