Announcing My Lightroom mobile Fuel Ebook!

LRmobile 150pxAdobe released Lightroom mobile for iPad last night, and I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve written a brand new ebook for Peachpit Press covering it: Adobe Lightroom mobile: Your Lightroom on the Go.

The book features 53 pages of detailed information on how to use Lightroom mobile, including lots of tips on how to get the most out of Adobe’s new remote tool. And it costs just $8! As near as I can tell, this is the first book about Lightroom mobile on the market. (Update: Victoria Bampton, aka The Lightroom Queen, also released a book. Go buy her book, too!)

The book walks you through creating and syncing collections from the desktop version of Lightroom, as well as creating collections on the iPad itself (and why you’d want to do it). It also goes into detail about the app’s editing features, covers the many gestures used to speed things up, and more.

Here are some page samples. Buy it now (not-so-subtle-hint), and let me know what you think!

  1. Hey Jeff! Peachpit is frustrating me with their sequential password requirements (oh, didn’t we tell you you need a number? oh, we forgot to tell you it has to be 8+ characters! oh, must be typed with left hand only. oh, you can’t use any password you’ve ever used anywhere else for the past 10 years…). Where else might I buy your book?

    1. I’m afraid that’s the only outlet. It’s a Peachpit ebook that they’re selling exclusively. Sorry! I know it’s not the best system. 😦

  2. Hi Jeff,
    I’ve heard that LR Mobile doesn’t import RAW files – is there a workaround that’s not too cumbersome? Or do I have to buy the book to find out 🙂
    Thanks, Ed

    1. That’s an excellent question, and depends on your definition of “not too cumbersome”. I don’t cover that specifically in my book, but I’m trying to figure out a good workflow to include in my iPad for Photographers book (and I’d like to add it to the Lightroom mobile ebook, too, which I believe would be available as an update). The very short version is that it’s best if you’re shooting raw+jpeg, because Lightroom mobile will import the JPEG. Then, when you get back to Lightroom on the computer, import the raw+jpeg pairs, sync the develop settings, delete the JPEGs, and optionally put the raw+jpeg pairs into the collection you sync with Lightroom mobile.
