The Contents

A comprehensive Table of Contents can be found here.

This live video tutorial covers Lightroom in depth, with the type of detail and focus that only Michael and Jeff, two of the program's internal alpha and beta testers, can provide. We look at each of the program's modules – Library – Develop – Slideshow – Print – Web – and explore their features and functions in detail. Our orientation is toward workflow, which is what Lightroom excels at. You'll learn all of the keyboard shortcuts, and how to take best advantage of each of Lightroom's powerful new tools.

If you're the type of person that learns best by a live demonstration and hands-on approach, rather than from a book, then The Luminous Landscape Guide to Lightroom 2 is for you.
