In the past I haven't been a huge fan of the "Dummies" books, not because they haven't filled an important need, but because for my style of learning they've seemed excessively "cute" and spent too much space on cartoons and clever comments often unrelated to the subject. I'm old-school -- I admit it -- and when I sit down to learn something I don't want to be entertained...I want clear, concise, accurate information that I can absorb as quickly as possible.This "Dummies" book is not like any I've seen before. Right off the bat the paper and printing quality is way better; while maybe not quite in the "really slick" category, it's well beyond the black ink on heavy newsprint of many past editions. Another positive feature is the author, Rob Sylvan, whose credentials as a National Association of Photoshop Professionals Help Desk Specialist are impeccable and whose style throughout the book clearly demonstrates not only mastery of the program he's writing about but outstanding communication skills as well.As to the subject -- Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 -- anyone even remotely involved with digital imaging knows how popular this program has become since its launch about two years ago. Lightroom's defining concept, parametric editing (the fancy term for non-destructive image editing) has changed the way we think about processing digital image files. This isn't the only program to use this approach -- Apple's Aperture and Light Crafts' LightZone employ a similar methodology -- but Adobe's rich history and huge market share in the image editing business provide a lot of user confidence and pave the way to better integration with other Adobe products like Photoshop and Bridge which still have a place in a complete, upper level digital workflow.
