It also contains an exclusive performance checklist to help you fix and improve any specific speed or slowness issues.

The full digital book is 2 MB in size, and the download comes together with her free newsletter:


Bonus: When you get this book, you’ll also receive the excellent Lightroom Quick Start Guide, which is also free… It’s 81 pages full of tutorials designed to help you master the basics of Lightroom, while avoiding the most frequent problems. These two books are bundled together.

As noted above, Lightroom CC is part of the CC Photography package, as well as included one of the many tools you get with the complete Creative Cloud – while Lightroom 6 is available as a standalone application with a perpetual license… Before you buy, you should know the differences between LR 6 vs. CC.
