Is this for you?
It's for anyone who have little or no experience with Lightroom - or those who have enough to know they don't know what's the up and down on a workflow.
The aim of the Lightroom Survival Kit is to give you the overview and necessary tools, as well as a way to handle editing so that you can produce the image quality you require in Lightroom, without having to know everything about the software.
The Lightroom Survival Kit gives you the necessary setup for a secure and efficient workflow when you empty your images onto the computer.
How do I arrange my photos?, should I use previews?, how about keywords?, is there some tool I missed?, which tools does others use?, how do I convert to black & white so it looks good?, what color space should I choose?, how do I use the rating system? ... and many other questions will be answered.
The Lightroom Survival Kit is not a "know-all-about-the-software" and all the features of Lightrooms. It's for photographers who wants photographic results using Lightroom.
