They are pretty good and are priced well.

I have never understood why anyone would pay real money for this sort of thing when so much is available free on YouTube and elsewhere.

Admittedly the quality is variable - but some of the free stuff is absolutely superb and some of the paid stuff is rank rubbish. Can't comment on the stuff being advertised here but I would rather risk a couple of minutes assessing the quality of some free videos than pay and then find that I didn't rate it.

For me, the reason is that  time is better spent getting real usable information in an organized form from very credible, very knowledgeable sources than wading through the chaos.

I absolutely agree.  George is the best at presentling.  He does not give you just setting...i.e here is what setting to use....which is BS.  He gives you an understanding of how to bring out the best in your images.

I have George's LR4 Library and Development tutorials, as well as his new 'Image Correction Master Class' http://mulita.com/blog/?page_id=5852

I have view many other tutorial...purchased, on Lynda or Kelby, and LuLa.  George is, by far, the best....and most reasonably priced.

Ah, well George does it better by far than most (free or otherwise). Here's a free one from George on converting color to B&W, you tell us if you think it's good:

I agree.  I like George's approach.  You'll get lots of detail and demonstration of step by step ways of working.  His steady (almost plodding) and friendly approach is intentional and great for groking something that had escaped me previously.  I go to George when I want to remember or learn or re-learn specific things.  (One exception to this is his understanding of sharpening in the detail panel - which I find a bit odd.)

We live in an amazing time.  I have all the LULA tutorials, which give me a lot of the "why" and "how it was built" along with the "doing" of things and a huge 30K feet altitude view of all things digital.  And, insights into Jeff and Michael's (and now Eric's) thinking are of huge value.  And now we have Jeff's detailed books for learning and reference.  And this forum for when we run into stuff that doesn't "fit" anywhere else (or at least so we suppose in the midst of trauma!).

I very much admire Julianne Kost, but her frame of reference and "assumed knowledge" is so huge that I'm almost always about five steps behind her when she's "'splainin' something"  Grin.  Kinda like when I look up a word in the dictionary only to find that I have to look up all the words in the definition to get it.  LOL
 
And the modest cost of electronic information and modern day publishing makes it pretty darn accessible.  I hope all these folk are making a ton of buck on their efforts.  Eight zillion "little sales" from all over the world, I hope.  They deserve it.

I have George's tutorials and find them to be well worth the modest cost.  If your time is worth anything it's better to spend the few dollars than spend the time searching the internet.

I just listened to a free demo on his explanation of the crop tool and was very impressed.  Just the right amount of detail.
