Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4

Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4: A Photographer’s Handbook is a new book from Adobe Certified Instructor Stephen Laskevitch.  In the new book, Laskevitch pulls from “his experience as a teacher and practitioner to create a guide that provides a clear and effective workflow for editing photographs in Photoshop CS6 and its companions Bridge, Camera Raw, and Lightroom 4. Focusing on the critical elements of a workflow rather than covering every arcane feature, this book is designed to get you working quickly in these applications.”

Photoshop CS6 and Lightroom 4: A Photographer’s Handbook retails for $44.95; however, it is currently available from Amazon for $23.71.

So, you’ve got that Rebel T2i, 7D, 5D Mark II, D300s, D5000 or any other number of DSLRs that can record video.  But how do you get a worthwhile movie captured, edited and in front of others’ eyeballs?

A decent starting point for answering that question can be found in Mastering HD Video with Your DSLR from Helmut Kraus and Uwe Steinmueller.  [click to continue…]
