Anyone have suggestions? I've been using LR for a while, now, but am clearly not getting the most out of it. Is there a book or manual (including e-books) you would consider to be the end-all/be-all of LR guides?

I use two references, the Martin Evening book, which dives into good technical detail, and the Scott Kelby book, light on technical detail but more 'process driven'.

There are also some good blogs, from Victoria Bampton's "Lightroom Queen" to Matt Kloskowski's and others...Lightroom Killer Tips, thelightroomlab.com, Lightroomsecrets.com, &pixiq-LR.com

Subscribing to this as I feel like I'm in the same boat. Sometimes LR just makes me mad and I revert back to Bridge :smile:

Martin Evenings book and Victoria (The Lightroom Queen) Bamptons book would be my picks. But it depends on your personal style, check out a few to see if the style of the book works for you!!

A double ++ for these books.
I also would recommend the download tutorial with photographer Michael Richmann and Jeff Schewe from the Luminous Landscape website:

Excellent resources, thx everyone- I'm learning LR 3.4 atm and struggling a little bit to get things moving smoothly.

I downloaded part of the Kelby book for the Kindle. It was enjoyable to read and he covers things very well. I think it is definitely something I'd rather have an actual book for over having it as an e-book though...
