I’m Giving Away Five Free Copies Of My New Book, “Photoshop Classic for Lightroom Users!”

Hi, gang, and happy holidays!

I’m hoping to make five lucky folks season a little brighter as I’m giving away FIVE free copies of my brand new book (so new that it’s on press right now, and should be in stores VERY soon), it’s called “Photoshop Classic For Lightroom Users.” It covers just the stuff that you’d need to leave Lightroom for, and it makes it super easy to learn Photoshop. You’ll learn everything from Layers to Retouching to Special Effects to how to create today’s hottest looks, and so much more. You will super dig it, and you’ll dig it even more if you win a copy. But if you don’t, here’s where to pre-order the print edition on Amazon).

Just put a comment in the comment section below, and you’re entered. We’ll pick five lucky winners at random and announce them here on Monday. Now, outside of announcing those winners, I’m taking the holidays off, so let’s soak it all up on Monday, cause after that I’m pretty much out till next year. 🙂

One more thing…
If you can’t wait, the Kindle eBook version is available right now, and you can pick up your copy from Amazon.

Here’s wishing you all a great Holiday weekend, and hope you win one of the books!

    I would love to win. I know Lightroom pretty well but not Photoshop as much. Scott Kelby’s books are always so helpful.

    I’ve learned almost everything I know about LR Classic and PS CC from Scott Kelby and KelbyOne! I’m a hobbyist who fantasizes about photography greatness! I have a long way to go and not enough years left.

    I just started reading your Lightroom Classic CC book for digital photographers that I received as a gift from Christmas and I really appreciate your ability in explaining the Lightoom concepts. I look forward to read your next book!

    Greetings from Italy!

    I’m a Lightroom user who has been intimidated by PS for a long time, so I’d love to learn about it! Sounds like the perfect book, so I’ll check it out.

    Long time member, I enjoy Scott and his educational skills. Would love this book to help me know Ps so much better.

    A Kelby gift for Christmas, Wow and I thought there’s only one Santa Claus. That would be wonderful since I forgot to put that on my list. Hopefully I’ll find something under my tree. Happy Holidays and keep on shooting…

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all at Kelbyone Your books always make it so much

    I have been using Lightroom 6 stand alone for a long time. Going have to make the switch to Lightroom CC online. This would be a big help!!

  9. Lee W 22 December, 2018 at 10:50 Reply

    I would still be using only LR for post-processing if it weren’t for Scott Kelby’s books and online training. Looking forward to adding this to my collection.

    For the Holidays go out and take a festive picture and send it to your friends and family. You can send them a print they will keep, or at least email it. Why? Because they would like to enjoy your photography too. Don’t go cheap and Facebook it nor Instagram it where it will sit ignored. An image sent to an individual or another family here or in a foreign land will be appreciated more.

    To the Kelby staff, past and present) and family: Thank you for sharing your ideas and Scott. Have a Happy Holiday and New Year to all.

    Hope to win your latest PS book for Lightroom users. I have been Lr user since 1st version and need to develop my Ps skills more. This book will be ideal for me.

  12. Andrew Abrams 22 December, 2018 at 08:41 Reply

    I have read many of your other books
    This one looks like a great way for photographers to understand photoshop and effectively use it in their workflow. Happy holidays.

    Wow what an amount of comments to scroll through to get to the “Submit a Comment” button. Surely everything must have been said already. Would love to win a free copy of your latest book.

    Just yesterday I searched “Scott Kelby” in Amazon to see if you had any new publications out – I desperately need to refresh my Lightroom skills and redo my entire process from import to export. I hope to be one of the lucky 5!
    Thank you and hoary holidays!

    Photoshop has always intimidated me, Scott. Your books are written in a manner that uncomplicates the seeminginly complicated. I would love to be able to use parts of Photoshop to augment the processing I do in Lightroom. I love Lightroom Killer Tips!

    Love your website Scott and have enjoyed your Digital Photography books over the years. I think I’m still an amateur, but they’ve certainly helped!

    Thanks Scott,

    I am not stuck in the 60’s or any decade for that matter, but I am kinda stuck in Lightroom and would love to break out and get into Photoshop. I appreciate the chance to win as do the multitude of others who are responding here!

    After retiring from medical social work, photography became my relaxation passion. The learning curve is quite steep as I digest Lightroom and Photoshop and flip between the two of them. I’m certain this book would be the guidance I need and also a great Christmas gift. Thank you for all.

    • Andres Piolatti 21 December, 2018 at 11:23 Reply

      Using Photoshop along with Lightroom has always been my Achille’s heel. This book could finally make Photoshop more friendly for those who, like me, tend to stop image processing when Lightroom settings are over.
      Congratulations on this book!

    Happy Holiday to all. I own a few of Scott’s books and look like to add this one to my collection

    I love Lightroom and don’t use photoshop, though it’s included in my Adobe bundle. Just too daunting. I’d love a book to walk me through using it as a Lightroom user!

    I am still in 2 minds whether to use Lightroom-Photoshop or look at something else…Maybe this will convince me, or maybe not…

    After my father died last year I took over his photo contracts. Unfortunately I knew nothing about Photoshop or Lightroom. He had several of your books. Thank goodness. If it were not for those books I would have lost the contracts. Anyghing that will show me how to work more efficiently I could truly use.

    Happy Holiday’s to all

    I have recently retired and now have time to devote to my photography hobby. I have just taken a subscription to Lightroom Classic and if I win a copy this book would help me with learning the intricacies of the software.

    Please let that headline be a typo. Adobe wouldn’t be stupid enough to confuse everyone again with a Photoshop Classic would they?

    Hey! Just the kind of book I need! I’ve spent the last year getting reacquainted with photography and I’m super comfortable with Lightroom,but Photoshop is still Greek to me.

    A guide to how to reach a level of fruitfulness and productivity of complicated programs such as Photoshop is always welcome.
    Photography is an art that one continues to learn and finesse. We are blessed with the tools we have to be able now to share this with others in such a way that it is a joy and inspiration for others.

  77. Kenneth Lee 21 December, 2018 at 03:43 Reply

    Lightroom is great but there are times that you need PS. Like replacing skies or getting rid of unsightly objects.
