Tampa Bay Computer Society

Beginning February 24th there will be a new monthly presentation at the Tampa Bay Computer Society. This is not in place of Lightroom Tampa Bay meetings but as the subject matter will be Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom it may be of some interest to LRTB members.

The Tampa Bay Computer Society is located in Clearwater and this Special Interest Group “SIG” meeting will take place on the 4th Monday of each month between 7 and 9pm.

There is no fee for the meetings but if you plan on attending regularly you will want to become a member of the Tampa Bay Computer Society. They have several programs that may interest you.

The SIG will be led by Adobe Community Professional, David A Rogers.

Lightroom 3 Classroom In A Book

Lightroom 3 – Classroom in a Book

This review comes from Lightroom Tampa Bay member Velva Lee Heraty. Velva took advantage of our groups access to books from Peachpit, a members only benefit and was kind enough to share her thoughts. If you are a member in the Tampa Bay area, check out the members only section for a list of the books that are available.

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3: Classroom in a Book is not a book you curl up with on the couch. It’s an official training workbook from Adobe Systems and requires you spend an afternoon or two in front of your computer to get your money’s worth

The workbook contains 324 pages of instruction that includes a download of nine lesson files from the enclosed CD-ROM. The big advantage in downloading the lessons is the ability to go at your own pace. This reviewer is now on lesson six and enjoys the fact that past files are readily available and easily accessible if need be.

Classroom in a Book is heavily illustrated for additional input away from the computer and boasts a seven-page index. For the total newbie who enthusiastically buys their first digital camera and jumps into training mode a glossary of terms would have been useful. I highly recommend this user-friendly book”.

The information he writes is clear and helpful. I’m comfortable working in Lightroom and learned very useful techniques in this book.
