Introduction

Adobe Lightroom is a revolutionary, all-in-one imaging application. It was created from the ground up for serious photographers who'd rather spend most of their time shooting and not all day sitting in front of a computer. Lightroom makes it easy to import, edit, organize, process, and share digital images in an integrated work environment. Because Lightroom is non-destructive and doesn't alter a single pixel of the original image file—be it RAW, JPEG, or TIFF—it is lightening fast. You'll be amazed at how quickly you can change white balance, optimize exposure, create a slideshow or a web gallery, or prepare one—or a hundred—images for print.

Who should read this book?

Anyone using Lightroom, be they an amateur photographer or a professional, should find this book useful. I've done my best to explain in easy-to-follow text, complemented with hundreds of illustrations, how to get the most out of this amazing application. I've also included numerous double page photo spreads throughout the book, which I hope you'll enjoy and find inspiring as well.

Written for Lightroom 1.1

Lightroom has gone through several versions, including the public beta of 2006 and the release of Lightroom 1.0 in February 2007. This book is written for Lightroom 1.1, the latest version of the software. There is a significant difference between 1.1 and 1.0, and I highly recommend that registered Lightroom 1.0 users go to the Adobe website (www.adobe.com) and download the free upgrade.
