Adobe Photoshop Lightroom® is the most versatile post-production processing software program available to photographers today. The Library module is a true asset management program. Images can be organized into folders, subfolders, collections in multiple ways, making it is far more than just a photo browser. Once organized, any image can be easily found on the computer. In the Develop module, remarkable results can be achieved to bring out the best an image has to offer, especially with a RAW file. Lightroom® is an easy and fun program to to use, however, it can be a difficult, sometimes confusing software program to learn. The impetus for this book came from two sources, first, questions asked by participants in classes and workshops and second, the realization that there are multiple ways to accomplish the same task in Lightroom®. Some of these procedures or techniques are easier than others. This book is an attempt to streamline the workflow in Lightroom® by promoting the procedures or techniques that are the easiest, most efficient and hopefully the fastest way to accomplish a task.
