1Lightroom has grown to become the primary application for processing Raw files for many photographers. The most recent version is more powerful than ever, but with processing power goes complexity. Lightroom can be confusing for newcomers, especially those used to working in Photoshop and for who Lightroom represents an entirely new approach to processing images. Even experienced users may not appreciate the full power of this amazing program.

Mastering Lightroom: Book Two – The Develop Module shows you how to use the tools in the Develop module to get the most out of your Raw files. It builds on the lessons learnt in Mastering Lightroom: Book One – The Library Module and shows you how to use Lightroom’s powerful features to creatively process your images. You’ll be amazed how easy Lightroom is to use once you’re familiar with it and just how much it speeds up your workflow compared to other applications.

Mastering Lightroom: Book Two – The Develop Module is written for you:

About author Andrew S Gibson

Self-portraitMy interest in photography began when my parents bought me a Ricoh KR-10m camera over 20 years ago. Since that day I progressed from colour negative to slide and black and white film and finally to digital, when I bought my first digital SLR, an EOS 350D, in 2006. During that time I’ve taken photos in over 60 countries, studied for a degree in photography and worked as Technical Editor for EOS magazine. Now I’m a freelance writer and I make a living writing about photography. In recent years I’ve lived in the UK, China and New Zealand, which is now my home. My clients include EOS magazine, Craft & Vision and Peachpit Press. I also carry out technical editing on forthcoming photography books, and design photography courses for Foto-Classes.
