    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 is like having a
