BUNDLE – Adobe Lightroom & Adobe Lightroom Classic
eBooks updated for August 2020 releases
Discounted bundles designed for Lightroom Classic subscribers who are also using Lightroom (Cloud service) on their mobile devices. Bundle includes:
Adobe Lightroom – Edit Like a Pro
Adobe Lightroom Classic – The Missing FAQ
Why would I want both books if I’m using Classic?
There’s a difference in the books, and it isn’t just that one is based on Lightroom Classic and the other on Lightroom (cloud-service). While the tools are in different places, the Edit Like a Pro (using Lightroom [cloud version] for the editing) focuses more on the thought processes behind how you decide what to adjust and then how to do it, with more examples for those newer to editing. The FAQ focuses on more of a technical approach (and the desktop as the editing base)
The other difference is that the Edit Like a Pro book teaches how to use the mobile apps, not covered in the FAQ book. Lightroom Classic users have the Adobe Photography Plan, which includes Lightroom (cloud) and the mobile apps also.
Lots of photographers in this situation have also bought the Lightroom – Edit Like a Pro book and find it very useful. As it’s an app that is developing rapidly, it is worth downloading the latest eBooks from our site.
With your book purchase*, you also get a year’s access** to both the Lightroom Classic and Lightroom (cloud-service) Premium Members Area. The benefits include:

Are the eBooks and paperbacks up to date?
The eBooks are updated on release day for each release.
As you can imagine, it’s impossible to republish the paperbacks every time there’s new features, as new features are added to the Lightroom cloud ecosystem and Lightroom Classic every couple of months. The paperbacks are sent to the printers every couple of years, when there’s enough changes to warrant purchasing a new paperback.
Adobe Lightroom Classic – The Missing FAQ last went to press in January 2018. We add the changes using an Appendix in the back of the eBook, so those who prefer to read on paper can simply print out the extra pages and add them to the back of the paperback.
Adobe Lightroom – Edit Like a Pro last went to press in August 2018. Almost all of the information in the paperback is still accurate, but additional features have been added over the last year and the user interface has changed slightly on mobile. There’s a list of the new features at the back of the eBook format, so you can check what’s changed since the paperback was sent to press.
We anticipate that both books will go back to press for Adobe Max (October 2020). Any current Premium Members who purchased from our site will be able to order the latest paperback at a discounted price, so if you prefer to wait for the updated paperbacks, you can still go ahead and order the eBooks from us now.
