  • AcknowledgmentsSometimes it feels so unfair that I get most of the credit for the books that bear myname. All too often those who work behind the scenes dont get the credit they deserve.For the vast majority of my books, one person has consistently supported me, gentlyprodded me, and helped to make sure I did everything I needed to do (even if it waspast deadline) so the latest book could actually get printed. That person is Pete Gaughan,and I can assure you that at least a few of my books would have never seen the light ofday without his support and help. Pete, Ive caused far too much stress for you as I letdeadlines slip, and you deserve much of the credit for the books I am so proud to havewritten. Thank you for all youve done for me. Your kindness doesnt go unnoticed.

    Im incredibly proud of my two daughters, Miranda and Riley, and appreciatethe inspiration they provide for me. Both have taught me so much, and I feel remark-ably lucky to be blessed with them in my life.

    My family also doesnt get enough credit for helping me get where I am. Thanksin particular to Mom, Heidi, Amy, Tiffanie, Grandma, and Greg. And of course, thankyou to Bob. Though he is no longer with us, his influence will live with me forever.

    I am very grateful to Andr Costantini for providing the incredible photographicimages that grace the pages of this book. Andr is a talented photographer who waskind enough to share many of his images to help illustrate these pages. I think youllagree that they add to the enjoyment of the topics discussed. More of his great imagescan be viewed at Thank you, Andr.

    Thank you to the many friends who have supported me in so many ways overthe years, including Angel, Bruce, Dan, Marianne, John, Peter, Jeff, Mike, and everyoneelse who has supported me.

    I also want to thank the entire Lightroom team at Adobe for creating a greatproduct for me to use and write about.

    And finally, Id like to thank all the great people at Wiley, and specifically Sybex,who helped make this book possible. I already mentioned editor Pete Gaughan, whoshepherded this project with tremendous patience. I also want to thank Robert Birnbachfor his efforts as technical editor, production editor Rachel Meyers, copy editor SharonWilkey, and compositor Chris Gillespie at Happenstance Type-O-Rama. The entire teamat Wiley has been a joy to work with, and I appreciate all the effort theyve put forth tohelp me produce the best books possible.

    To the old man selling hand-carvedwooden angels in Kln, Germany. What

    a difference a handshake can make.
