As a newbie to LR, I thought I'd spend some time this week on tutorials. There are lots of training modules around, but Lynda seems to cover lots of other software as well, that may be useful. Anyone here have experience with LR4 using lynda.com?
I originally had a 1 yr subscription to Lynda and did learn but lately watch www.creativelive.com and a few instructors on there gave excellent training in LR- they are free when live or can be purchased afterwards for reviewing.
Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.
I used it for a month and got a lot of value with high-quality training. It probably included 8 to 12 tutorials. Most were in light room, but some were in Photoshop. I really liked the broad selection. The other thing I like is that you only have to pay for a month. I plan to reopen my subscription when I get a free month where I can really concentrate. Glenn
FYI, the NAPP site just added LR4 and Photoshop CS6 Training. I haven't tried the LR4 training yet, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the CS6 training. I assumed they were just adding some of their Kelby Training basic videos to NAPP as a "trial" to entice new Kelby Training memberships. But it turns out the material is all new. I consider myself well versed in Photoshop, but I still found this training offered great tips and a was a good refresher course. NAPP membership is only about $99 a year, so this may be a cheaper option. Plus they have tons of tutorials. Here is a link: http://members.photoshopuser.com
Interesting site. Just got turned off however with the 30% premium on Canadian memberships ($129 instead of $99). What's up with that? I can't see how they could justify it. I was going to send them a friendly comment but it seems their contact us web page is down. Peter
I am using Lynda.com now. The tutorials are clear and in small sections. Easy to go back and view one twice and then move on. average 5 minutes each. they go over one point and move on to the next in a topic by topic manner. JB
