I learned about lynda.com about a year ago when I chose the one month subscription to lynda.com as the Adobe thank you gift for registering my updgade to Photoshop CS3. I've been using it off and on ever since then and I've grown to love it as a way to keep up-to-speed on new software.
There are four things that make lynda.coma great way to learn about new software:
I suggest that if you are moving to Lightroom or Aperture or Photoshop CS3 or Photoshop Elements 6 a month or two subscription to lynda.com is well worth the cost to get you up-to-speed on the new software. Lynda is not paying me to say this! Since I started using it I am amazed to find what a powerful resource it is.
One of the new releases lynda.com com has is a hour plus photographic inspirational video called Douglas Kirkland: Creative inspiration, which is a series of interviews with Douglas Kirkland, the photographer famous for his iconic images of Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Jack Nicholson, and Nicole Kidman, among others.
