I dled all of the LR series as of last night. I watched some last night and am now watching the second video on the develop module (right side). I have the first LR series and the Camera to Print and I have to say that I feel this series' visual appearance is even better (thanks Chris). I just checked one of the videos on the LR1 series and the lighting is better on 2, the camera viewpoint is better (IMO), so kudos for that.
The ones I've watched thus far have been well done--and, as always, entertaining too *smile*. Though I'm a big user of LR1, I hadn't really spent enough time in LR2 beta so appreciate the indepth use of the filter area. Well done. Actually, between Michael and Jeff, they are doing a great job of bringing out what needs to be known, how to use it (adding the keystrokes on the screen is great) and making sure even the first time users of Lightroom are going to 'get it'.
Great jobs guys. Back to the Develop module. Just had to add my 2 cents about the improvements and the care each is taking to make sure that some points are emphasized, as needed.
