    Learning Lightroom and Post Processing

    I have been taking photos for quite a while now. I have not post-processed any of my photos and the nearest thing to post processing that I've done to them is adding borders and organising them.

    But that was when I was using a P&S. Now that I've got my DSLR and thinking of doing this as a serious hobby, I want to try LR2 to be the image management and post-processing software.

    Any books or websites you can share? Thanks.

    If you don't mind listening to me drone on for an hour or so, I have an impromptu presentation on PP with LR and CS4 here:

    It has a good workflow concept, and going from importing your photos from camera, tagging, cataloguing, processing, creating presentations, printing, it works very well. Photoshop is an Image editing package. Lightroom does a lot of differing things, you can easily create web galleries, slideshow presentations etc.

    It cannot do some of the things photoshop can, but it can do some that photoshop can't. Together they create a great package of editing applications. Friends of mine who do weddings regularly, import to lightroom, do a lot of editing there, final tweaks in PS, then use lightroom to present the photos to the clients initially. During the presentation, the clients can say which ones they want in their album etc, and a single button press assigns a rating to each photo, making it easy for the photographers later to sort them for album, enlargement etc.

    Lightroom is a lot more powerful than what most photographers use it for.
