  • Book Review: Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4 By Stephen Laskevitch « NCMUG
    book He takes a very conversational tone as he provides some good background on basic terms and concepts of photography and then moves on to help configure your system for the programs and then gives a hands on tour of the programs Each page of the book has a visible color coded margin tab so you can find relevant information about that program He gives you his reasons for his suggested plan as well as alternatives here and there that might also work Then he moves on to workflow steps He uses Photoshop CS6 the latest version from Adobe but his information is applicable to earlier versions You don t have to be an expert in either program when you start but when you finish you will feel very confident with your photo editing skills and the organization of your digital assets The key to keeping track of digital images is to use Lightroom and the author takes you through the learning curve Once you understand the terminology how the program works and what it can do you are on your way The first step is importing all of your photos into the catalog in the library module in a way that suits your personal organization or workflow If you don t have one you will need one to get started Your choice might be chronological or by subject then you can drop down a notch to months or subtopics and on with more specifics that fit your particular choices It may take some time to gather your photos from all the places they have been filed but once you make that effort each time you download additions to your library it will be much easier and much better organized The other trick is learning the value of key words ratings and metadata so that you can retrieve photos from the catalog in the library module A picture of the Golden Gate Bridge might include key words water San Francisco boats bridges landmarks etc Enter any of those key words and you will be able to retrieve that picture along with any others that fit that parameter without looking through a lot of files and folders The authors also describes the use of folders and collections Lightroom has double value Along with the organization of your images in its data base it has powerful photo editing features Your digital assets can be retrieved and then edited in the development module non destructively A small file is added to the photo indicating the changes and their history but the original is not changed ever Lightroom has photo editing capabilities similar to Photoshop and Adobe Camera Raw so you can organize and edit your work with one stop shopping Photoshop then is the place to go for more editing and creativity with its powerful features and filters The author is very helpful as he describes the concepts and features of the programs and gives step by step directions for using them It

  • Review: iPhoto the missing manual by Peter Sanderson « NCMUG
    Places Part 2 covers Editing and Sharing and is well detailed for the beginner and advanced user The author then covers advanced operations and file management even suggestion other applications to use in conjunction with or which may suit the user better than iPhoto Part 4 covers iPhoto for iOS which is informative for those who use this application This edition encouraged me to build an iPhoto Library and work my way through the book as if the author was sitting with me The beauty of this release is that it is backward compatible with previous versions of iPhoto although not all features are available to the earlier OS Look for a possible update to iPhoto 9 6 when Yosemite OSX 10 10 becomes available I found the segments on using Key Words Places and Faces of particular interest as these allow the user to quickly search for photos without having to wade through an entire library The author provides well written yet short Tips and Notes on use throughout the book to help the reader with details I was put at ease knowing that editing does not involve the original file instead an alias is located within the iPhoto database This allows the user to revert to the original if the editing result is not what is desired I would recommend this manual to anyone with a Mac who shoots digital photos Having used other vendor s programs in the past I found iPhoto easier to use because of this well thought out and written book The examples are easy to read and follow and the investment is worth the minor expense Rates a 5 out of 5 on my scale Mahalo for the kokua Lesa Peter Sanderson Posted in HomePost Reviews Leave a Comment 0 Categories Announcements 41
