Includes a comprehensive demonstration of the updated Lightroom v.1.1

This Tutorial effectively covers the features of Lightroom up to and including
the current shipping version 1.4*


Though Lightroom has been available as a free beta download for many months, the shipping product, Version 1.4, is quite different in many respects from the beta releases. Many new features and capabilities have been added, a few have been removed, and the workflow has been enhanced and altered.

During 2006 Jeff Schewe and I published two Lightroom Tutorial DVDs; one for Beta 1 and another for Beta 3. These were extremely popular, and helped many people get up-to-speed with this exciting new program. Now, with the release of Version 1.0, there is the need for a completely new and comprehensive video tutorial.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroomis available from the Adobe web site for US $299. There is a free 30 day Trial version.

The Contents

This live video tutorial covers Lightroom in depth, with the type of detail and focus that only two of the program’s internal alpha and beta testers can provide. We look at each of the program’s modules –Library – Develop – Slideshow – Print – Web– and explore their features and functions in detail. Our orientation is towardworkflow, which is what Lightroom excels at. You’ll learn all of the keyboard shortcuts, and how to take best advantage of each of Lightroom’s numerous tools.

If you’re the type of person that learns best by a live demonstration and hands-on approach, rather than from a book, thenThe Luminous Landscape Adobe Lightroom Tutorialis for you.

* Updates

The video for Lightroom 1.1 covers almost all the significant changes from 1.0. Most changes in 1.2, 1.3 & 1.4 are bug fixes and additional camera support.

The most significant change in 1.3 is in the Export dialog; so for this specific item be sure to checkLightroom-News.comfor update articles by Martin Evening, Ian Lyons and others.

While a further update to the video beyond Lightroom 1.1 is possible, it is unlikely before a complete new Tutorial on a future fully-revised version of Lightroom beyond the current shipping version 1.4.
