Now that you've got those amazing DSLR shots, you need a book
that goes beyond the software manual to help you organize and
process your images using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom–including
the recently announced Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. In Photoshop
Lightroom: From Snapshots to Great Shots, professional
photographer Jeff Revell helps you master the fundamentals and
create stunning ready-to-display images.
Jeff covers the basics – from importing images, to making minor fixes and local edits, to applying special effects to fine-tune your photographs. You'll also get a sneak-peek at Jeff's entire workflow as he shows you how to make adjustments to your photos and complete your vision for a shot – a process that begins the moment you pick up your camera and ends with your final edit in Lightroom.
Follow along with your friendly and knowledgeable guide, and you will learn key software techniques to organize and improve your images, including:
Importing and tracking your images using keywords, filters, and Smart Collections
Using the selective adjustment tools to improve the quality of your images
Enhancing your images with gradients, vignettes, and Dodge & Burn
Creating a photo book
Printing contact sheets or a picture package
Sharing your images via email, slideshows, or an online Web
