    Ok, I'm fairly proficiant in PS, but it seems that everyone is saying Lightroom 2 is the way to go for basic photo editing. I got the program, installed it, and have been using it for importing, but now what? How the heck does this program work? Does anyone have a good book, or dvd that they can reccomend to me. I learned PS the same way. I read a ton of books, watched tutorials and dvds... Any help would be appreciated.

    You would have to pay for them, but I'd bet that the tutorials at The Luminous Landscape are pretty good.

    When L2 first came out, I believe Canon had "free" training via web.

    I gave up on it after I couldn't make it work during my "trial period" so have not checked recently.

    If you have Itunes, you may also want to check out some free podcasts for it.

    DOH! I don't know how I missed it, because I thought I had looked for it, but ACR in CS4 does have the adjustment brush, graduated filter, etc.... Well heck, now I probably won't keep using LR, because I'm not a big fan of the cataloging. I have my own sorting system.
