Lightroom 4 Book Module Tutorial: Basic Skills

I haven’t written many tutorials about Lightroom 4’s Book module on this blog, so I thought I’d share a video tutorial on some basic  skills: swapping and replacing photos,  usage badges,  adding more photos to your book collection, removing photos,  selecting and moving one or more pages, adding and removing pages, zooming a photo to fill, and a discussion of resolution.  This is the 5th of 14 videos (3 hours) on the Book module from my Lightroom 4: Producing Great Output series.
