Sometimes you're the last to try something. Adobe came out with its Lightroom digital darkroom and photo-organization software a few years ago, and followed up with Lightroom 2 last year. I played with both of them for about 10 minutes when they launched, and then ran back to Photoshop. I'm a digital tech freak, but I was set in my ways. Most of what Lightroom does can be done in Photoshop, after all.
But... I've just finished reading Photoshop Lightroom 2 Adventure, by Mikkel Aaland (O'Reilly Media; $44.99), and I'm a changed man. I've been locked away in my studio for weeks now playing with the software, the book and my digital images.
