Here’s what other readers think.
Do I need a Kindle or eReader?
No, you don't need to buy a Kindle or eReader device to read these books. All that you need is free eReader software and there's a large choice. If you are an Apple user, you can use the Books app that comes with every Apple computer, iPad and iPhone. Your book is then uploaded to the Apple cloud and shared across all your Apple devices.
If you are a Windows PC user there is a wide range of free eReader applications. Personally I like the free Kindle software. It has great features and is available for Apple, Windows and Android devices.
What if I'm not satisfied?
Let me know within 30 days of purchase and I will refund you in full. You can contact me by email using [email protected] and no I won't be offended. It will help me though if you can say why you want a refund so I can improve my books and service.
Which format should I buy?
I now offer my books in two formats which are PDF and ePub. Older books are also offered in the proprietary Kindle Mobi format, but Amazon has now retired this and adopted ePub instead.
ePub is by far the best format for reading books as it supports many features like being able to change text size to make it easier to read. In contrast, PDF is better for layout and printing pages or sections of a book.
When purchasing a book, choose the format you would like using the dropdown. I recommend purchasing the "All" format option where possible as this will give the greatest flexibility for the future.
Can I print the book?
Yes you can.
Whilst you can purchase most of my books as paperback from Amazon, I know some people only want to print a page or section. The PDF version of the book is great for this and there are no restrictions provided that it's for your own personal use. You can even print the entire book if you like, although with the cost of ink it may be cheaper to buy the paperback.
Can I read the book on multiple devices?
You can have your book on as many devices and computers as you like and make copies provided that it's for your own use.
How do I get my book onto my Kindle?
Amazon has a service which you can use to email books you purchase to your Kindle library. These are then available on your Kindle reader or software. Amazon has a lot help on their website about the Send to Kindle service.
But Send to Kindle isn't the only option Amazon offers. You can read about others in the Help pages of the Amazon website.
I found Adobe Lightroom Classic CC: Mastering the Library Module to be a fantastic reference and guide for organizing my photos into a practical and usable system. This book was an easy read and easy to understand, making the complex module a more effective tool for my own application. Robin’s advice provided many excellent tips on how to get the most out of my Lightroom work. I refer to it often. Thanks, Robin!
Like most everyone else, I had accumulated thousands of photos over the last few years – which then horribly ‘disorganized’ as a result of my ineptitude and/or insufficient attention! I kept reminding myself that I had to re-collate everything properly, but always balked at the task as I just did not have the time to stop everything, go back to basics and re-learn LR from scratch. Then I came across this book (and its companion to master the Library Module)
As promised, this book indeed educated, unconfused and – even better – put me back in control of my collection. Whalley painstakingly attends to every aspect of the LR modules, and lucidly and fluently explains everything I wanted – and needed – to know. I’m about two-thirds the way through my reorganization, and it has been both an intuitively easy and thoroughly rewarding venture. Two thumbs (more if I had ’em) up!
