1. Introducing Adobe Photoshop Lightroom > Working through the book

Working through the book

I’ll be explaining each aspect of the program in greater depth throughout the book, where you will notice that I have structured the book to match a typical workflow, starting with the various ways you can import your photos into Lightroom. At the beginning of this chapter I described how the philosophy behind Lightroom was to offer “unreasonable simplicity.” If Adobe has been successful in this mission, you should find that much of the Lightroom program is fairly self-explanatory. For example, if you go to the Help menu, you will see a Shortcuts item for whichever module you happen to be using (Figure 1.21 shows the shortcuts for the Library module). In keeping with the spirit of Lightroom, I have tried as much as possible to avoid discussing the technical workings of the program and focused on discussing what Lightroom does best: managing, editing, and outputting photographs. If you really want to know more about how Lightroom works, there is an Appendix where I elaborate on various technical features. You will also find more detailed technical background information at www.thelightroombook.com.
