Welcome to Peachpit's new Lightroom Resource Center
Just when you feel like you’re getting pretty decent at Adobe Photoshop, along comes Photoshop Lightroom.
Perhaps you cast a jaundiced eye at this new software. You thought, "Photoshop works just fine for me, thank you. And everything I’ve read about what you can do in Lightroom sounds suspiciously like what I can already do with Photoshop, Bridge, and Camera Raw."
But as a digital photographer, you can’t ignore the buzz that’s been building around Lightroom. Designed from the ground up for people like you, Lightroom offers a streamlined approach to importing, processing, and managing large libraries of images. If you shoot raw images, you’ll find Lightroom indispensable. That’s because unlike Photoshop, in which all image data is loaded at once, Lightroom uses a system that lets you work on a lightweight version of the image, deferring intensive pixel-crunching until later. It’s fast, it’s sleek, it’s a new way of working with images.
But don’t just listen to me. Read—and hear—what top photography experts have to say in our new Lightroom Resource Center. We’ve pulled together the best info from across Peachpit into one central location. You’ll find expert intelligence from our best-selling books, The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers by Scott Kelby, and The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book: The Complete Guide for Photographers by Martin Evening. You’ll also find video tutorials by Matt Kozklowski, one of The Photoshop Guys of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Plus we have articles, downloads, blogs, and more. We’ll adding new content every week, too, so be sure to check back often.
Photographers have left the darkroom behind. Welcome to the Lightroom.
