Whenever a new version of Lightroom is released I can't wait for the inevitable release of the newest version of The Missing FAQ! And, as expected, Victoria Bampton (a.k.a. The Lightroom Queen) has updated her EXCELLENT volume Adobe Lightroom 5 - The Missing FAQ. Victoria is a fellow Lightroom ACE and Adobe Community Professional and one of the nicest people you will ever deal with. She was gracious enough to send me a copy hot off the PDF press. I've been reading it since and want to let you know about it.
The book is currently available as a PDF but the print, ePub and Kindle versions are not far behind. You can grab your copy right now over at Victoria's site. Just CLICK HERE. Go ahead. I'll wait.............
OK. Do you have your copy? Great!
Victoria has been growing this book for many versions of Lightroom and each edition just gets better and better. You can read my previous reviews here at Lightroom Secrets. It is no surprise that this latest edition continues to be the best source of Lightroom information for new user and expert alike. I keep my copy readily available on my desktop and iPad. You will too. So what makes this Lightroom reference so different? It's the approach Victoria takes.
Unlike nearly all other Lightroom books, Victoria draws on her experience helping users with their questions. The book is divided into logical chapters and each chapter is a conversation of sorts. A question followed by her answer. Then another question and answer. Somewhere in the book your question has probably been asked and answered. And if not, Victoria provides other resources. There is a members area on her site with standard and premium levels of membership. There you will find a knowledgebase, email access, and a ticket system to get your issue to Victoria quickly. Premium members get more access and preferred support and all you need do to become a premium member is buy the book. Talk about a bargain!!!!
Just to give you a small taste of what you'll find when you buy your copy here are a couple of sample pages.
This is a beautifully designed book that is rich with content. If you purchase only one Lightroom book make it this one.
