Hi wetpixellers -

In an effort to expand my horizons from Bridge + Photoshop, i'd like to ask all the Lightroom users in the forums to point out any tips/tutorials/DVDs that are available to suggest if LR is better at the digital darkroom photo workflow than Bridge/Photoshop. I've purchased Doug Sloss' CS4 for Underwater Photographers and think it is an amazing resource and am hoping there is some sort of equivalent for Lightroom... i'll take no responses as a sign of nothing available :B):

Cheers!

Well since you asked, check out 100 ways Lightroom kicks Bridge's ass. (Hey, that's what they named it)

I agree with you that Doug's CS4 video is a great resource, can't wait til he comes out with CS5.

For general learning about Lightroom, I like the Adobe TV videos, great for us visual learners; http://tv.adobe.com/product/lightroom/

Have fun,
Steve

I have learned SO much on Lynda.com and can really vouch for it. Try a month for $25 bucks and I am sure you will think it was worth every penny.

Michael Reichmann and Jeff Schewe have an excellent tutorial at the Luminous Landscape for Lightroom 3. I also recommend the Digital Asset Managment Guide at Luminous Landscape with Michael Reichmann and Seth Resnick.

Jeff Schewe is a alpha/beta tester for both Photoshop and Lightroom. He's forgotten more PS/LR stuff than I will ever remember.

Oh, and everything everyone has said about CS4 for UW Photographers.
