Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom

SCOTT KELBY

Although I use Adobe Photoshop for all the serious retouching and high-end tweaking of my photographic work, I use a product from Adobe called Adobe Lightroom for managing and organizing my thousands of digital photos, processing my RAW photos, creating onscreen slide shows, and printing out multi-photo spreads. This is an application designed from the ground up for photographers, is available for both Macintosh and Windows users, and it only costs a fraction of what Photoshop costs. Now, it certainly doesn’t replace Photoshop, because it doesn’t create the amazing special effects, cool layouts, and the myriad of things that only Photoshop can do, but then Lightroom isn’t supposed to do all those things—it’s for organizing and viewing your photos, and it does that pretty brilliantly I might add. If you get serious about this whole digital photography thing (and if you bought this book, you’re getting serious), I recommend you check out Lightroom—especially because if you actually go and buy it, I get a cash kickback from Adobe. I’m kidding of course, but I wish I weren’t.
