Peachpit have a free chapter from Chris Orwigs book Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 How-Tos: 100 Essential Techniques. It’s a tutorial on using the Adjustment Brush. I’m happy to see this out there now, as I was tech editor on this book. Chris is an excellent writer, with an easy to read style. He manages to make difficult things easy to understand and provides solid examples with his tips. I’ve said before that I learned a bit from the process myself, but equally so a whole bunch of my own tips were written in also. I know there’s going to be an overflow of Lightroom 2 books out there (my own included), but if you’re looking beyond the big 2, this is well worth a read. I may as well mention the Elephant in the room. Any book that comes out now will be compared to both the Martin Evening and Scott Kelby Lightroom 2 books. Both are available to order right now, with Martin’s already published. I think Chris’s book is a different focus but very useful.
Update: My copy arrived in the post yesterday… Nice to see my name inside! And Chris made a nice comment in the acknowledgments
