Adobe Certified Instructor Dave Kelly’s new textbook Lightroom® 3: The Develop Module Made Easy (published by AuthorHouse) is a concise, straight-to-the-point discussion of the panels and tools available in the Lightroom® 3 software program for developing an image.

An excerpt from the book:

Good post-production processing of an image is a lot like good surgery. It’s a matter of forming good habits. A good surgeon has a plan of approach to every surgical procedure. He uses the same instruments in the same order every time he does the same procedure. That way the nurse knows what he’s going to do and the instruments are in the right order to hand him. Adobe has tried to put the tools for post-production processing of an image in the right order for us. So, our job is to form good habits in our approach to processing our images in Lightroom®. Like the surgeon, it doesn’t mean we’ll use every tool every time, it’s up to us to decide which of the tools available to us we need to use.

At only 70 pages, Lightroom® 3: The Develop Module Made Easy is an easy read for the working photographer. Kelly describes his technique instructions carefully and concisely, offering a number of simple-to-remember bullet point lists.

“In teaching Lightroom® classes the most often asked question was, ‘Is there a concise, straight-to-the-point book on using the Develop Module of Lightroom® 3 available?’ I found none so I decided to write one.”
