A Complete Guidebook to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

Adobe Certified Expert Piet Van den Eynde's Lightroom 6/CC Unmasked is a valuable resource, full of high-resolution screenshots, step-by-step instructions, and the tips, tricks, and ideas that make digital darkroom work productive and more enjoyable.

Within the 400 pages of this downloadable PDF eBook, Lightroom 6/CC Unmasked includes 15 chapters that cover everything from an introduction to Lightroom and non-destructive editing to full discussions and detailed instructions of the Library and catalogs to every tool in the Develop, Map, Book, Slideshow, Print, and Web modules.

This edition has been fully updated to cover Lightroom 6 and Lightroom CC (and the differences between them), Lightroom mobile (the companion app of Lightroom on tablets and smartphones), and also includes a special chapter catering to photographers who want to switch from the now-abandoned Aperture to Lightroom.

HDR, the new People View, and the filter brush and all upgraded features of Lightroom 6 are covered in the detail—the core of the Lightroom Unmasked series. 

This eBook also includes a collection of 69 cases which provide context and insights on the smaller topics that often get overlooked. These insights put the tools and features into context, helping you learn and apply what you read along the way. Some of these are pro cases, tailored specifically to more advanced users and covering topics that few—if any—other Lightroom resources tackle.

This eBook goes beyond out-of-the box software by exploring the vast Lightroom eco-system, covering every module in depth, as well as discussing third-party applications and plugins, and Lightroom-to-Photoshop integration.

Piet has introduced hundreds of students to Lightroom; he knows the application like few others and knows the problems faced by both beginning and more advanced users. Some of the cases in this eBook were written as a direct result of that feedback.

Whether you read this book from cover to cover (recommended for novice users), you take on one of the hundreds of interesting “sidebar tips” a day, or you dive straight into the case studies, you’re going to be a fan of having Lightroom 6/CC Unmasked in your digital library.
