I’ve been a little quiet lately, while I’ve been catching up with everything behind the scenes, and a number of people have emailed to ask what I’ve been up to, so here’s a quick update:
Adobe Lightroom 4 – The Missing FAQ is now available for download in ePub and Kindle formats, as well as the PDF format, and when you purchase either of the bundles, you gain access to all 3 eBook formats. If you’re not sure which format will suit you best, here’s a quick summary:
- PDF – ideal for reading/searching on the computer; can also be viewed on devices such as iPad using apps like iBooks, GoodReader or iAnnotate.
- ePub – reflowable text optimized for eReaders such as iPad (iBooks), Nook, Sony, etc.
- Kindle – designed for the Amazon Kindle and Fire
The updated PDF, complete with the new Workflow chapter, was also released at the end of March. Early feedback has been really positive, with many readers saying it’s their favorite chapter. Here’s a small peek at my personal workflow diagram, which you’ll find in the book.
Emails went out to the book mailing list a couple of weeks ago when the updates were released, so anyone who has already purchased either of the Lightroom 4 book bundles can log into the Members Area to download the updates.
Paperbacks also shipped ahead of schedule. Bookstores in the US, such as Amazon, are now fully stocked, and I’m just waiting for some UK bookstores to catch up. If you don’t have your copy yet, there’s no need to wait for stock, as you can order direct from this website.
After many months of sitting here writing, I’m looking forward to spending more time with you on the forums and social networks. I’ve just finished catching up with all of the threads at www.lightroomforums.net, and a backlog of emails too, so Facebook and Twitter are next in line. I’ve been enjoying reading your comments on the blog!
I’m also planning my next projects, so I’ve been reading back through more than 1000 survey responses from the end of last year, to work out which are the most popular choices. First on my list of projects is the new Members Area.
Website Updates & The Members Area
Lightroom Forums and this Lightroom Queen website are moving to a more powerful server in the next few days, so don’t worry if they disappear temporarily while DNS servers update.
The software for the Members Area has just come out of beta, so I’m busy adding content before its initial release. In addition to the download system, there are some useful features under construction, many of which were suggestions from the survey and other emails, and I’ll be continuing to add to it. Anyone who has purchased the Lightroom 4 book will have Premium Access, so I’ll tell you more about that when it first goes live…
For now, I just want to thank you once again for your continued support, and I look forward to continuing to help you with Lightroom too.
