When you have a Lightroom question, where do you look? Do you spend hours searching the web? From now on, you look right here.
About the Book
As the name suggests, Adobe Lightroom 6 – The Missing FAQ is primarily designed as a conversational FAQ-style reference book, giving you the detailed information you need to make informed choices, whether you’ve been using Lightroom for a few months or a few years. No more pressing buttons without understanding the repercussions!
Unlike most other Lightroom books, this isn’t just the theory of how Lightroom’s supposed to work, but also the workarounds and solutions for the times when it doesn’t behave the way you’d expect.
Who’s the book written for?
For less experienced users, the Fast Track weaves its way through the book, with short tutorials that guide you through a simple workflow, allowing you to gain confidence before diving into the more advanced questions.
The book then switches to a conversational question & answer format, going into greater detail for intermediate and advanced users. There are questions ranging from simple ones like how to import photos, to much more in-depth details about how the previews are used and how to create your own camera profiles.
Why is it called Lightroom CC/6 on the cover?
When the book was originally released in 2015, it covered the subscription version (Lightroom CC 2015) and the perpetual license (Lightroom 6). The subscription version has now been updated numerous times and rebranded Lightroom Classic (now covered in the LR Classic book). The information in this book still applies to Lightroom 6 standalone license.
The LR 6 version is a major rewrite that’s taken 2 years to complete, and I’m confident it’s my best yet. The information is now easier for less experienced users to understand, and easier to find using the comprehensive new index. If you’ve read previous versions, don’t worry, all of the advanced information is still there and has been expanded too. The book’s also available in color print for the first time (it’s not glossy, but it’s much better than the previous B&W print). To learn more about the rewrite, click here.
