Laura guides you through how to manage, enhance and share your images in Lightroom 3 in a way that beginners can easily understand and immediately put to use, and with enough depth that intermediate users can also benefit greatly.

Includes guidance for beginners on which videos are most important for beginners to watch first.
Is this series applicable to Lightroom 2 as well? Yes — while the series was recorded using Lightroom 3, for the most part Lightroom 3 adds additional features, but otherwise looks and acts the same as Lightroom 2. The Import dialog does have a different layout — but the same basic functionality, so even the Import video is worth watching.
