Over the years, we’ve put together a large collection of free Adobe books that we share with our readers here… This extensive set of helpful, no-cost books has now grown to over 30 different titles that you can legally download and use royalty-free, forever.
These books cover many different Adobe products – but up until now, we haven’t been able to offer a solid book on doing photography together with Adobe’s top creative tools… That has all changed with the excellent (and did we mention free?) new guidebook entitled, Another Photography Book, using Adobe Photoshop Camera Raw and Lightroom Classic.
In this volume, courtesy of author Professor Thomas Payne, you will learn the ins-and-outs and top tips to using your camera effectively, as well as how to use the most important features of Camera Raw and/or Lightroom in order to bring out the best in your digital photos.
Here is the overview description of this substantial 314-page book:
Another Photography Book is a text that can be used to learn Photography over a semester of university instruction or through self-instruction. This step-by-step book includes the basics of photography, along with integrated guides to Adobe Camera Raw (ACR in Photoshop) and Adobe Lightroom Classic – you can use either one.
Covering everything from the history of photography to what to shoot, to how to read histograms and apply different types of adjustments, using masks and transformations, and of course red-eye removal and other important retouching techniques, this guidebook goes over everything you’ll need to know to feel competent in your craft.
Both medium resolution and high resolution versions of the book are available for free download. In other words, this title comes in two versions with small (48 MB) and large (96 MB) file sizes. The content is the same, but the large file size version will allow for enlarging of the illustrations.
