Learn Scott Kelby’s 7-Point System for developing photos to perfection in Adobe Lightroom!
Imagine how awesome it would be if you opened up an image in Lightroom, even a really messed up one, and you knew exactly what to do first, what to do next, and every step along the way to take that image from flat to fabulous. Well, that is precisely what this book is all about. You’re learning a system—the same one taught in colleges and universities around the world—that was crafted by world-renowned Lightroom expert Scott Kelby, the world’s #1 best-selling Lightroom book author.
This is a new way of working and thinking about editing your images that will change the way you work in Lightroom forever, so you’ll spend less time fixing your photos and more time finishing them, and doing the fun, creative things that make Lightroom the amazing tool that it is.
Scott narrowed things down to just the seven major editing moves we need to master to enhance our images like a pro, so we’re not learning Lightroom tools we’re probably never going to need. Then, and perhaps most importantly, he determined exactly when and in which order to apply these seven techniques that make up this proven, time-tested “Lightroom 7-Point System.”
But, the magic of this book isn’t just listing the seven techniques and how they work. It’s how they’re used together, and it’s the learning process you go through that makes this book so unique. This isn’t a “read about it” book. This is a hands-on “you do it” book. You start each lesson with the RAW photo, right out of the camera (you can download Scott’s images, so you can follow right along). Then, you’re going to apply the 7-Point System in a very specific way, and you’re going to do it over and over again, and again, and again, on a range of various photos, with different challenges and situations, until these seven points are absolutely second nature to you. You’re going to do the full edit each time—from beginning to end—with nothing left out. Once you learn this system, there won’t be an image on your screen that you won’t be able to enhance, fix, edit, and finish like a pro!
As you move through the book, you’ll be amazed at how well this system works across such a wide range of photos, from landscapes to portraits, from architectural to sports photography, from wedding photos to everything in between. The book is 21 short lessons (including two bonus lessons where you work with Lightroom and Photoshop together), and if you spend just 10 minutes a day doing that day’s lesson, in three weeks, there won’t be a photo you won’t be able to beat! You’ll know what to do first, what to do next, and in exactly which order to take a dull, lifeless image and make it one you’d proudly hang on your wall. Best of all, you’ll learn more than just the 7-Point System along the way, as you’ll have to tackle whatever each image throws at you, so you’re going to discover extra techniques, shortcuts, and workarounds that will help you in every aspect of your editing.
This is the book you’ve been waiting for—the industry has been waiting for—and once you learn this system and start applying it yourself, you’ll be the next one to say, “You can’t beat the system!”
