Perhaps the biggest advantage of Lightroom over programs like Photoshop is that Lightroom gives you control over your entire workflow, from the moment you import photos from your camera’s memory card through to processing your Raw files and exporting images. Yet most photographers seem to go straight to the Develop module, and push the task of learning how to use the Library module to the side.

Mastering Lightroom: Book One – The Library Module (second edition) changes that. It shows you how to use the Library Module to import, organise and search your images. This important task lays the foundation for the work you do in Lightroom. Mastering the Library module ultimately saves you time, which you can spend either in the Develop module or with your camera. Either way, you end up with more hours to be creative.

This second edition expands on the material presented in the first, going into greater detail and including an in-depth look at Lightroom mobile, showing you how to integrate it into your workflow.

Mastering Lightroom: Book One – The Library Module (second edition) is written for you.
