I just got this program. It seems pretty daunting with all the features. Any free online tutorials or beginners how to guides?

CreativeLive and KelbyOnline have great classes, and are better organized than trolling youtube. But they aren't free smile

This

Plus compared to photoshop it's not the least bit daunting.

It's a simple workflow.

However, if you have never done any photo editing before you might be a bit like WAHHH ?

Buy  a book.

Creative live is free to watch when they are recording, but you have to buy them after that.  Totally worth the cost as they are very good and you will learn super fast and get great techniques.

It's not daunting at all compared to photoshop.

I learned a lot of my Lightroom tricks from these videos.

I highly recommend starting with the tutorials put out by adobe.  I was in your position about four months ago when I decided not only to change over to a Mac platform but figured I would learn Lightroom as well.  It is daunting at first, but you will figure it out quickly enough.

Lots of good advice above.

Worked with one of the Beta testers. Best advice I got was to set ALL the  files on an external harddrive. Name the first file Master Photos and then create sub files. IE People, Travel etc. Later, after you have imported all your pictures, they are much easier to find. Plus you can take the external and plug into another computer with lightroom and immediatly go to work.

Not free but Scott Kelby's book on Lightroom, step by step instructions for anything you want to do in LR and why you want to do it that way.
