New Lightroom Classes from Scott Kelby
Over on KelbyOne, we just released four brand new Lightroom courses from Scott Kelby! Whether you’re wondering why you should start using Lightroom and are curious what the advantages of it are over just using Bridge and Photoshop, a current user who wants to know more about sharpening, a sports photographer looking for the best way to integrate Lightroom into your workflow, or are just looking for some cool layout ideas, Scott has you covered.

Leave a comment for your chance to win a free copy of Scott’s Lightroom 5 Book for Photographers!

About The Author


  1. Can’t wait to see it Scott! Would love to read also 😜

  2. I’m looking forward to your new Lightroom courses! Thanks Scott!

  3. Beginning to use Lightroom, and it has already helped me begin to bring uninspiring photos to life!

    The Lightroom 5 Book for Photographers would not only help my own learning process, it would also help me produce photos that not only have life, but longevity to!

  4. I tried Light room a few years ago (before I had a camera that could shot RAW) and just didn’t get it. Now I have an SLR (and shot in RAW) and with the help of Kelby One I’m making better images than ever. Thanks Scott. 📷

  5. I do a lot of sports photography for kids, particularly tennis, squash and soccer – would love to be able to do some slide shows and montages for them – is this something Lightroom can help with?? Love the British accent by the way :-)

  6. This is getting more interesting every time!

  7. My photography business is going to be picking up speed soon and I know I really need to upgrade my skills with Lightroom 5 and would love to win this book

  8. Love to have a copy of Scott’s Lightroom 5

  9. Would like to complete my collection of Kelby books.

  10. I’d love a copy of another great Kelby book!

  11. Just started following Scott Kelby on Twitter. I have an account with Adobe CC and always end of using Adobe Photoshop. Lightroom has always baffled me. Scott’s book looks like it could be a great help to me!

  12. I’d love to win a copy of the Lightroom book. Thanks!

  13. I’ve got quite a few of Scotts books in my “tool kit” and definitely need to upgrade my Lightroom 5 skills, so I would love to win this book.

  14. I’m curious about Lightroom, Brad. Would love to have a book on it.

  15. Sports photography and LR are close to heart, would love to hear what Scott has to say about them

  16. Throw me in for the lightroom book draw! thanks guys

  17. Awesome, loving all the new courses!

  18. Oh well, just recently bought your Lightroom 5 for photographers book. No regrests ;)

  19. Would LOVE the book, and Scott’s classes on Lightroom are amazing, I love the one on using the “Print Module”, great stuff as always.

  20. I’d like to throw my hat in for Scott’s book on Lightroom.

  21. Love to win this book. Just started using Lightroom and need to learn how to use it.

  22. I’d love the book. Self-taught on Lightroom so far so I’m sure the book would be great.

  23. The book would be a big help

  24. I am learning so much from Scott Kelby and the team at KelbyOne. This book would add so much more. Great work guys and girls behind the Kelby banner.

  25. I studied computer graphics in school. Kelby books should be required reading. They are fantastic and you learn so much from them. I would love his lightroom 5 to help increase my knowledge of the program.

  26. Love Lightroom, always trying to improve my skills.

  27. Still trying to figure out all the ways to manipulate color in Lightroom 5 and do it efficiently.

  28. I very reluctantly started using lightroom in my workflow last summer. I’m still pretty much a newbie at it. I really should take a class or two. lol

  29. Would love the Lightroom 5 book for photographers!

  30. Scott’s books are always very informative and fun to read.

  31. I can use all the help I can get ! Seriously :)

  32. I’ve just started using Lightroom and the tips from the entire Kelby empire (not to be confused with the other empire that likes to kill jedi) have made it an easy transition from my old software.

  33. I’ve upgraded to Lr5, so I could really use the book to go with it (and I enjoy Scott’s humor and book writing style, too).

  34. As a Nikon shooter I had to be dragged kicking and screaming from CNX2 to Lightroom. After getting over the initial shock I absolutely love LR5 CC at $9.99 a month. Can’t beat that with a stick! Would love the book!

  35. Would like to participate and win !!!!

  36. Scott’s LR5 book would motivate me to learn lightroom and start working in it.

  37. I need this book. How else can I take my Lightroom workflow to the next level without this book?!? Please choose me!

  38. What can I say about the books that Scott Kelby writes.…Just FANATIC! He takes you step by step through the process and makes it so much fun! Would LOVE to have this book on Lightroom.

  39. This is awesome! I have read this electronically; a hard copy would be great!

  40. Would love to have a copy of the Lightroom book

  41. If you only need one book about Lightroom, this is the one to choose !

  43. I need all the help I can get! That publication would be a good start!

  44. Please count me in. My LR skills are……………..lacking.

  45. Since its launch, I have spent more time in LR and have almost, just about abandoned CR. Only Time I am in Photoshop now is when I am creating a composition. I loved your latest class on the 3 types of Sharpening and how & when they are to be used!!!! Great class!!! looking for more secrets & capabilities tucked away in LR!!!!!

  46. Starving for more input other than the Weather Channel: from the frozen tundra of Massachusetts

  48. This book would help reduce my learning curve for Lightroom 5.

  49. Would really really really really love this book!

  50. Would love a copy of this book. Your light room courses are already making a difference to me and would love to get even better

  51. I would love to learn Lightroom, i have it on my Mac, but have only used Photoshop. I have heard a lot of good stuff about Lightroom and I am sure your book could get me up and going.

  52. If it is even half as helpful as the previous books, it will be well worth clearing a spot on the shelve:)

  53. I love your writing style (which is basically your speaking style, as I learned from your “Shoot Like a Pro seminar yesterday in Richmond) I have “The Digital Photography Book” and just got “The Adobe Photoshop CC Book for Digital Photographers”. I need your Lightroom book, as I have learned mostly by hunt and peck and now need to learn what I’m doing wrong or could do better.

  54. Love Scott’s Lightroom and Photoshop books. Have been a life saver a couple of times for me in the past.

  55. New to Lightroom. Would love a copy of this book! Looking forward to meeting Scott in person at Shoot Like A Pro tomorrow in Raleigh NC.

  56. I would love to win a copy – if I’m lucky please autograph it for me! 😊

  57. I wanted that book for Christmas but Santa apparently didn’t get the message. I really enjoy your videos on KelbyOne so I’m sure I’d learn much from the book as well.

  58. Love books… especially photography ones!

  59. I love your easy to follow tips. You’ve been helping me improve my skills for several years now.

  60. would love to win the Lightroom 5 Book.

  61. Hey Scott & Brad! Went to your Richmond seminar yesterday & am still on a high from it! Loved every second! I would love this book to support my homework that I need to do before you all come back next April!! Thanks!!

  62. Hello gentlemen… used LR 4…computer got hit with a virus and corrupted my LR…nothing else was destroyed…so actually starting out with about 3500 images–and a clean slate of LR5. I’m thinking your book would help me get it right this time !!!

  63. I’m sure your Lightroom 5 book is just as good as all the other ones you write!

  64. If this book is half as awesome as your seminar in Richmond was yesterday, I just can’t live without it! Thanks for a great time and hurry back, please!

  65. Scott kelby is da bomb diggity! New York times best seller list. I need a new good read.

  66. Now I am paying a monthly subscription for it, I need to know how to use it over Photoshop! Disappointed to learn that my Mac will not work with future versions though ;-(

  67. Would love the latest Scott kelby Lightroom book, need to get to grips with it and having read other books I know Scotts will make it easy to understand.

  68. This would benefit me greatly! Fingers crossed!

  69. Wow that would be amazing, great! Learning from the Master him self. That would be a small little dream.

  70. Scott, your books are a great way to learn. Your step-by-step way of teaching makes complicated tasks easy to accomplished.
