What others are saying

Some of the 5-star reviews on Amazon:

“I have read Peter’s product agnostic earlier work (“The DAM Book”) and had based my own workflow on its suggestions. So I had expected my workflow would be pretty close to what was recommended here. Not true. There were a number of areas where we had different interpretations on the best way to apply Lightroom’s features to manage a DAM workflow. There were also some areas where Peter had adjusted his recommendations (and this was clearly identified) based upon his experiences managing large photo collections. I have to say his overall workflow was much more powerful and simpler to manage than mine so I gladly adopted the new recommendations.

“I enjoyed reading and viewing Peter Krogh’s Organising Your Photos eBook and can thoroughly recommend it to Lightroom 5 users of any level, regardless of whether you have read his previous books or not. The content is clear and concise, approachable even for those without much Lightroom experience, and describes a well reasoned workflow that is useful now and will grow with you into the future. I’ve personally adopted the recommendations and am finding it an easy way to manage my daily importing and processing of photos and videos from all of my cameras.” – Matt Dawson, February 7, 2014

Organizing Your Photos with Lightroom 5  “is a must-have resource for Lightroom users. The format is excellent in that it explains the technique in easy to understand text, followed by video presentations that illustrate the technique. You can, if you wish, just follow the serial videos. Chapters are laid out for the novice or skip to appropriate subjects for more advanced users. Peter lines out how to set up your library from the beginning to decrease your workload and make it simple to categorize and locate images. Can not image using Lr5 without this book.” – Joel Lillevig, January 27, 2014

“I found techniques that I had never considered, like setting up special smart collections to find specific unkeyworded images. The clear writing and videos and considerations from the ground up will help Lightroom beginners. More experienced hands are likely to find a few Lightroom asset management techniques that will make Lightroom even more useful.” – Conrad Obregon, January 25, 2014

“I have found this information to be very helpful in in tidying up my image library as well as in helping me streamline my workflow. Particularly useful in my view, is Peter’s thorough explanation of how best to work with Lightroom Collections. Used in the way Peter outlines, I find Collections to be an invaluable workflow tool that I had not previously used to full advantage. Whether you are just starting out with Lightroom, or have been using it since version 1 or 2, you will benefit from this book.” – Richard Anderson, January 26, 2014
