It seems like more and more photographers are using Lightroom as their main post processing tool. Photoshop is still king of the mountain, but with every new version of Lightroom, the feature set increases and, in many ways, closes that gap. Essential Development, by Sean McCormack is aimed squarely at you Lightroom users, taking you from basics like understanding the histogram through intermediate topics like toning and even into advanced beauty retouching. You’ll also learn specialty techniques like creating filmic looks and tilt-shift effects. The eBook focuses entirely on the Develop module and is broken down into 20 chapters, covering topics such as: Beauty Retouching, Dodge & Burn for Beauty, Cross Processing, Image Toning, Tilt Shift, Sharpening, and more. In addition to the PDF eBook, Essential Development comes as a complete package with the Essential Development Toolbox, a collection of 85 Lightroom presets for you to use as is or customize even further.
