New PDF eBook + Lightroom Toolbox
Want to take your Lightroom workflow to a new level? Essential Development, 20 Great Techniques for Lightroom 4, by Sean McCormack, is an amazing resource for any photographer who wants to get the most out of Lightroom’s Develop Module without all the guesswork.
Lightroom keeps changing, and most of us don’t have time to dig around under the hood to learn it all. Essential Development is a no-holds-barred guidebook that can help you explore, modify, and dig deep into the Lightroom 4 tools you need to make your post-processing efforts more productive and produce the final images your portfolio deserves! The eBook is divided into 20 chapters, focused entirely on the Develop module, covering topics such as: Understanding The Histogram, Making White White, Beauty Retouching, Dodge & Burn for Beauty, Cross Processing, Achieving a Filmic Look, Image Toning, Tilt Shift, Effective Sharpening, and Correcting Lens Issues.
Sean is a consummate professional, and an industry leader in Lightroom education, and he’s delivered a large, concisely-written eBook full of clear and large screenshots that will feel more like a workbook than an eBook.
The primary offering is an eBook package (.zip file) which includes the PDF of Essential Development, Essential Development Toolbox (a folder of 85 Lightroom presets), and a short PDF instruction manual to help with the installation and catalog some of the presets. Presets are a great way to cut down your editing time and with 85 of them there are presets here for a range of styles and tastes.
Whether you’re just looking to tweak your knowledge of Lightroom since the jump from LR3 to LR4, or you’ve been waiting for a great resource that doesn’t bog you down in Library modules and Print templates. This is a useful, hands-on offering that I know you’ll love.
