My New Lightroom Book (just announced today) Is Very Different Than My Other Lightroom Book
Hi Gang: The video above kind of explains what the book is about, but I thought Iâ€™d take 30-seconds to define both, so you know which one is for you (and, of course, Iâ€™m hoping one of them is for you. And your friends. And family. And strangers you meet on the street. Etc.).
My existing Lightroom Book for Digital Photographers
Itâ€™s designed to teach you Lightroom from the ground up, and its focus is on workflow, and teaching you all the awesome stuff that Lightroom does so you can fall in love with it like about a bazillion photographers around the world already have. Here are the links to it onÂ Barnes & Noble,Â Amazon, or from us atÂ KelbyOne.
My New Lightroom Book
This one is a reference guide for people already up and running in Lightroom. You donâ€™t read it cover-to-cover (like the other book); instead, you just keep this one nearby and when you see something you donâ€™t know how to do (or wonder if Lightroom can even do it), you turn to the right chapter, and thereâ€™s a quick, no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point description of how to do just that one thing. Here are the links to it onÂ Barnes & Noble,Â Amazon,Â KelbyOne, or fromÂ Rocky NookÂ (this is my first book with them. I hope I donâ€™t blow it with the risky idea Iâ€™m about to unleash below).
On August 13th, weâ€™re trying something weâ€™ve never done beforeâ€¦
On that date, weâ€™re putting the entire book online (all 250+ pages), for free, with each page on its own page (just like the book), for a limited time. Why are we doing this? Because weâ€™re hoping youâ€™ll find it so useful, that youâ€™ll buy either the print book or the eBook. This is either going to work brilliantly, or itâ€™s going to be the shortest experiment in the history of book publishing. But weâ€™re going all-in on it, so weâ€™ll see what happens.
If youâ€™re a member ofÂ KelbyOne, you can download the eBook today for just $10. Ten bucks! Thatâ€™s insanely cheap (but that deal is only for KelbyOne members)!Â For everybody else, itâ€™s $235.00. Okay, itâ€™s not quite that expensive (but it certainly should be). ;-)Â Â Hereâ€™s the link for the member deal.
Anyway, could you please take just a moment and watch the video where I explain it above (itâ€™s only around one minute long), and then go order the heck out of it (and if you could help me spread the word about this new book, and new concept, that would be especially helpful (and many thanks from me and the book team in advance).
Thanks for taking a moment to check this out, and I hope you all have a better than average Tuesday!
P.S. Iâ€™ll be signing the print version at theÂ Photoshop World ConferenceÂ coming up in just a few weeks in Vegas. Hope I get to sign yours there.
Opps … finally found the link. My bad. Sorry
i don’t see any link ?
It’s over here … http://kelbyone.com/how-do-i-do-that-in-lightroom/
I don’t knowDavid I tried a couple of times and it doesn’t work can u guide me pls
Today is the 13th isn’t it? Did I miss something. I still don’t see the ‘READ THE BOOK’ button?
Agree… I have looked at lightroomkilltertips, kelbyone, scottkelby.com… I am still not seeing any place to view, or download, the ebook for free. Was this just a teaser to get us interested?
Is that west coast date or east coast date (the 13th)? Florida time or California time?
‘Cause I’m up late and I don’t see the ‘READ THE BOOK’ button yet.
Would love to order the spiral bound book The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC Book for Digital Photographers but the cost of posting it to Australia is $52-18. Heck, the book only costs $43-95. Is there a cheaper way to post it?
I think Arvil has been sucking down too many $6 caramel macchiato’s from starbucks and is a little wound up :O
What version of Lightroom is this book design to work with? I could not find any reference in all the descriptions I read.
Hi John – it’s for the latest version of the software, either Lightroom CC or Lightroom 6. 🙂
Bought the Kindle version of the new Lightroom book but ordered the spiral bound so it could be used while working in post. OK, you got me again, for 10 bucks I’ve ordered the new ebook.
Thanks, Anthony. Hope you find it a help duo with the spiral-bound. 🙂
Thanks Scott for looking after us. I really enjoy your recent Lightroom book!
Guess I’ll have to wait until August 13 since my $10 has to go to a monthly CC fee. This of course is typed in my sarcastic font. That font may not be installed on your computer and you may not be able to recognize it. For only $9.99 a month you can download and use this special, valuable font.
You need to chill out! 🙂
I would echo what Dennis Zito commented to Avril & add – as a professional private music teacher, I spend WAY more than 9.99/month for all the software/apps/books I need for my business. My advice to you Avril – 1) If you are a professional photographer – deal with the costs of running a business & be glad you have a job. 2) if you are an amateur photographer, graphic designer etc & the cost of 9.99/mo. is too steep – FIND ANOTHER HOBBY. 3) If you just like to whine & complain (my bet is on #3) & can’t appreciate the nice thing that Scott is doing here with his new book – just go away – FAR, FAR AWAY.
David – your comment above has been nominated as a finalist in our “best comments of the year” competition. I’ll let you know how the voting goes, but you’re definitely in the running. 🙂
is there a link i am supposed to see to view the free book on august 13th?
