FAQs

  • Is this just for dSLR Owners? – To get the most out of this ebook we do recommend you own a dSLR or a camera that allows for image capture in RAW format.
  • Do I need any software? - The book was written using Version 5 of Lightroom for exercises, but Version 4 is
    just fine and Version 3 will work for most of the course material.  Photoshop CS6 was used for the writing of this eBook, but any version from CS4 onwards will do the trick for the vast majority of the course exercises. You can download trials of both Lightroom and Photoshop to see if it's appropriate as you follow along with the book.
  • Can I read it on my iPad? – yes. This eBook is a PDF and fits beautifully on any iPad or iPad mini screen size. It can be read on your computer or any other PDF reading device. To read it on your iPad simply download it to your computer and then upload it to iBooks (or any other PDF reading app).
  • Is there a hard cover version? – Unfortunately not – we only do eBooks at this point in time.
  • Got Questions or Needing Help? – If you have any problems with the purchase or download simply contact our friendly support staff. Please include the name of the eBook you are asking for support on as well as your PayPal email address if you have made a purchase.
