Lightroom 5 Unmasked



The day Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 came out, we released an eBook by Piet Van den Eynde called Lightroom 5: Up to Speed – it was a glance – though a thorough one – at what was new in Lightroom 5. Today we’re releasing Lightroom 5 Unmasked, A Complete Guide to Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. We don’t use the word “complete” lightly, but in this case, it fits. The eBook massive! Piet covers it all, every module and feature with his usual excellence and clarity.

Piet’s the guy I go to to brush up on Lightroom. I first met him in Ladakh, India. Ironically, he had come there to photograph with, and learn from, me, but in our spare time the things I picked up from him about Lightroom were amazing. And that was after I’d written my own best-selling book about Lightroom. Dude knows his stuff. This is his second complete guide to Lightroom and his first remains one of Craft & Vision’s all-time best-sellers. It’s 13 chapters, covering everything from an introduction to Lightroom and non-destructive editing to full discussions of the Library and catalogs, to every tool in the Develop, Map, Book, Slideshow, Print, and Web Modules. Piet also includes 69 cases – smaller topics that often get overlooked. A 356-page PDF, it’s searchable and printable, and you can put it on as many devices as you need or want to.

If you want to learn Lightroom 5 or think you already know it, Piet will teach you a tonne of great stuff. Lightroom 5 Unmasked is a killer value. And for the next week it’s only $17 instead of $20 (discount codes are at the bottom of this post).

Awake Enough.

I was talking to a photographer recently who said something I’ve heard, in so many different words, from so many of us, including myself. She’s taking a trip, going somewhere epic, somewhere she’s obviously been dreaming about, a place that’s already well lodged into her heart and imagination even though she’s never been there. She […]

The Created Image Video Series, Vol 1.

When we decided to host an intimate, intensive weekend conference in Vancouver this summer, I was blown away by what an incredible experience it was. We spent two days together, and we all left exhausted, inspired, and changed. In all there were 10 sessions, and once we cut them and edited them together we had […]
