I'm pleased to announce the release of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom – Quick Start Guides, which are FREE 70+ page PDF eBooks.  They're designed to help you get started with Lightroom and understand the basics, while avoiding the most frequent problems.

You can request the PDF at:  http://www.lightroomqueen.com/quickstart/

I meet a lot of people on the forums who have ended up in a tangle because they’ve misunderstood the basics, and much as I’d like to meet you, I’d prefer it’s not because you’ve accidentally deleted all of your photos!

Message was edited by: Victoria Bampton to add new LR CC/6 version

Thank you very much!

I put your new guide on my Kindle Fire HD and I know I will enjoy it.  (It displays brilliantly in the horizonal mode of the Kindle.)

I did register at your website, but an hour has gone by and I've not had the confirmation email to complete the process.

Hi Bill.  I hope you find it useful!  Where did you register - in the Members Area or for the mailing list?  I'll track it down!  Scratch that, I've tracked you down in the Members Area.  You are registered, but there's a bug in the software that didn't send the email.  Thanks for letting me know.

Thanks.  I was trying for the email list!  Yes, I like junk mail about things that interest me.  Being a "Member" sounds better than just getting email.

The LR6 version will be available in the next few weeks, but everything apart from the install instructions in the LR5 version still stands.

This is great Victoria, thanks also nice how folks can choose either the new LR6 or older LR5 version of the book:

Just a quick question, wondering why you decided to remove the Installation chapter from the new edition?

Because everyone I spoke to had already installed it long before downloading the eBook, and the installation process now varies depending on whether it's the trial/CC or purchased perpetual license, and getting into that seemed a bit OTT.  You think I should put it back?  Or maybe link to a webpage?

Apologies for the inconvenience.  Spammers suddenly started hitting the form so the web host shut it down while I slept.  There's a new form in place temporarily while I sort out something permanent and I'll email everyone who had broken links last night with updated ones shortly.  Any more problems, just drop me an email.

Sheesh, that's too bad.  But glad to hear it's sorted out and back up working again, that's good news.

One question on the difference between the old form and new form - is there still any way for folks to choose the older LR5 version instead, as there was before?

Thanks for the update!

Yep, the confirmation email has a link to both so they can pick which one they want to download.

Confirming, we're also seeing a 403 error, just had a reader comment about it...  Not sure why, but hope whatever it is, is temporary.

Regarding the "Installing Lightroom" chapter, both points could be valid...  Previously, LR installation was pretty straightforward and most folks didn't need much help getting things going the way they wanted. 

Now though, it can be rather more complex with more users posting here and requesting assistance, what with the two flavors Lightroom CC and LR6, the differences between them, as well as how to convert from one to the other.

So one could say that it's perhaps a better time now for such a chapter than before!
