As the name suggests, Adobe Lightroom 5 - The Missing FAQ is primarily designed as an FAQ-style reference book, rather than step-by-step tutorials.
It starts off with a series of Quick Start tutorials designed to help newer users quickly understand the basics and get started, while avoiding the most frequent pitfalls. The book then switches to a conversational question & answer format, going into greater detail for intermediate and advanced users. Who's the book written for? Whether you're a new user who likes to dive straight into new software and figure it out as you go along, a more experienced user wanting to learn how to get the best out of Lightroom, or you've just got a burning question you'd like answered, this book is for you. If you like to walk through hundreds of tutorials, it's probably not.
There are questions ranging from simple ones like how to import photos, to much more in-depth details about how the previews are used and how to create your own camera profiles.
These are real-world answers to real questions asked by real Lightroom users. It not only covers how to do things, but also why they work the way they do. Lightroom may have a mind of its own... but now you can learn how it thinks.
