I’ve been rumbled! 😉 News of the final release of my book spread on Twitter before I could even finish updating the website!
It’s true, Adobe Lightroom 3 – The Missing FAQ has graduated from its rough cut status and is now up-to-date for the Lightroom 3 final release.
The new Table of Contents is now live for you to browse and discover all of the topics covered in the final release. The updated excerpts will be uploaded within the next day or so, but the LR3 rough cut excerpts are still available in the meantime.
The PDF version is available for download right now and the paperback is off to the printers and should start shipping shortly. Emails have gone out to the pre-orders with their download links, so if you haven’t received your email, check your spam folder or let me know and I’ll resend it.
If you bought my LR1 or LR2 book, drop me an email for a special upgrade discount code. I’ve been busy! It’s had a massive overhaul since the beta rough cut. It’s been completely rearranged into a more logical order and I’ve added a lot more information for newer users as well as rewriting the more technical questions. It’s grown from 65,000 words to 105,000, so it’s well worth upgrading.
Pre-orders have already had the book for a day or so, and the response has been brilliant. Here are a few of the comments which make all the hard work, grey hairs and lack of sleep worthwhile:
“The final edition looks wonderful and I look forward to spending many hours pouring through it.”
“Just wanted to say that I love the final version. You did a great job. Thanks!”
“Awesome diagram there on page 364. I bet even the guys at Adobe will print it out poster sized and put it on their desks because I don’t know if even they fully understand the complexity of the workflow”
“I am a dedicated reader of manuals. Most of the time I wind up rewriting a manual into a more logical, concise and clear format. But your manual requires no such rewriting. It’s just perfect.”
So what are you waiting for? Get your copy right now!
There will be another free update in a couple of weeks for all LR3 book purchasers, which will add the full index from the paperback version – hyperlinking that is quite a job! If you’re planning on reading the PDF on your iPad, it works particularly well with the GoodReader app. Kindle and ePub formats are still on agenda, also as free updates, but will take time to reformat properly due to the number of screenshots.
