So, you’ve heard all the hype about Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and decided to invest in a copy of the latest version, 2. You’ve utilised resources such as these very pages and the Internet to get started with the software, and now feel that you’ve got a fairly decent understanding of how Lightroom works and how it can benefit your photography. However, you still feel like there is a whole lot more that the software offers which you’re not utilising.

Sound familiar? Then this may be the book for you. Labelled as ‘the serious photographer’s guide to Lightroom efficiency’, Inside Lightroom 2 takes what can only be described as a deep dive into the latest incarnation of Adobe’s award-winning image- management software. The title begins by describing how to get the most out of the software and continues to cover what’s new in Lightroom 2. The rest of the book is dedicated to tips including the optimum set-up and workflow, while also dissecting each individual feature and why it’s important to you and your images.

Inside Lightroom 2 is definitely best described as an in-depth exploration of Lightroom 2; if you’re already familiar with the software but feel like you’re not getting the most out of it then it could be just the title you’re looking for.
