How do I register my book?

If you purchase my main Lightroom FAQ paperback* books (LR3, LR4 or LR5) from Amazon or another bookstore, you can register your purchase to access the additional benefits including:

  • Premium Membership, which gives you access to the book contents (LR4/LR5 only) from any web browser, among other features
  • Access to the eBook downloads (PDF, ePub and Mobi/Kindle)
  • Updates to your version of the book in the Members Area
  • Discounts on future book purchases
  • Personal Lightroom support for your book’s Lightroom version (I’ll still be on the forums and social media, but anyone who is registered as a book owner gets priority email access too.)

* Please note, eBook purchases from Amazon/iBookStore/Kobo do not qualify for registration. You’re better off purchasing the eBooks direct from this website.


I ordered the paperback from an online bookstore – how do I register my purchase?

To register your book, I need:

  • Proof of Purchase – your confirmation email, shipping confirmation, a scan/photograph of the packing slip, or a screenshot of the order confirmation on Amazon’s website – I need to be able to read the order number and order date.
  • The book reference code (see below)

Send them via the Book Registration form or email them to

Usually within 48 hours, I’ll personally upgrade your Members Area account to Premium Membership and send you the download link for the eBook versions.
