Evening's book is probably the definitive text...
but there is nothing that can teach you better than just using the program...

One of the most comprehensive LR tutorials is from Michael Reichmann & Jeff Schewe over at Luminous Landscape. This covers EVERYTHING.

Try Lynda.com. Chris Orwig puts out some good videos. It's worth the $25 for a one month deal.

A great program, easy to follow

I don't think anyone mentioned looking at Adobe's own video library. They are free and fairly informative. Many of them are done by outside companies so you get a chance to see what is available before plopping down some money.

You can learn a ton from SLRlounge's excellent Lightroom series (117 videos and counting).  Awesome video's and extremely informative.

Thanks for that one!  I just checked it out and watched the first 10 little videos.  Very comprehensive.


No problem! ;D

For a free on-line resource I go to Julieanne Kost who is one of the great trainers at Adobe. http://tv.adobe.com/evangelist/julieanne-kost/suggested-shows/
Just go to her channel...you can even subscribe and start from where you feel will make the most sense. I'd like to get your feedback if you check it out


I agree with the above.  Great stuff to get going with and incredibly easy to assimilate.  And it's free!!!!!!!!!!!!!
