If you want to get up to speed on Lightroom, there is no more entertaining way than with The Lightroom Book.

Book Review – The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book For Digital Photographers – Scott’s Update Kit For Lightroom 1.1 by Scott Kelby

With quick turn around time the folks at Adobe, have recently released their latest update to Adobe Photoshop Lighroom and it is chock-full of new features. For those who read my review of The Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Book For Digital Photographers; which, by the way the author told me I was the first to review his book, may be wondering is this book out of date already?

The answer is no it is not! At least not if you get the Scott's Update Kit For Lightroom 1.1 at Peachpit Press. You will have to register both yourself and your copy of the book, but once you do, you will have an add-on that will walk you through all of the new features.

So what are these new features? Since the author traverses them quite well, I will only highlight a few of them.

• Managing Custom Presets and Templates
• Combining Libraries.
• Applying Keywords with the Stamper.
• Applying 'Most Anything with the Painter.
• Updating New Images in a Folder.
• Creating an Opening Other Libraries.
• Filtering Using the Metadata Browser.
• Increasing Midtone Contrast.
• Sharpening Photos.
• Adding Photos to your Slideshow.
• Setting your Print Resolution.
• Seeing the Status of your Exports.
• Importing When you Shoot RAW+JPEG
• Exporting to Photoshop/File Formats.
• Reducing Noise.
• From Lightroom to Camera Raw.
• From Camera Raw to Lightroom.

While this is not everything, it does give you the idea of all the wonderful things that Adobe has added to their new application and why, with Scott's Update Kit For Lightroom 1.1, the book has become even better.
