Getting Started
Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom® delivers a complete workflow solution for the digital photographer
—from importing, reviewing, organizing, and enhancing images to publishing photos, producing
client presentations, creating photo books and web galleries, and outputting high-quality prints.
The user interface is highly intuitive and easy to learn, yet Lightroom has all the power and versatility
you’d expect from an Adobe application, using state-of-the-art technologies to manage large volumes
of digital photographs and to perform sophisticated image processing tasks.
Whether you’re a home user, a professional photographer, a hobbyist, or a business user, Lightroom
enables you to stay in control of your growing photo library and to easily produce good-looking
pictures and polished presentations for both web and print.

About Classroom in a Book
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC (2015 release) / Lightroom 6 Classroom in a Book is part of the
official training series for Adobe graphics and publishing software developed with the support of
Adobe product experts.
Each lesson in this book consists of a series of self-paced projects that give you hands-on experience
using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC / Lightroom 6.
If you’re new to Lightroom, you’ll learn the fundamental concepts and skills that will help you master
the application; if you’ve used earlier versions of Lightroom, you’ll find that this Classroom in a
Book® teaches advanced tips and techniques, and covers the many innovative features that Adobe
Systems has introduced in the latest version.
