Start with Lightroom and...
Jan 12, 2013

Hello, this is my first post and, actually, I am pretty also a beginner in the "photo world".

I've bought a Panasonic G3, so now I would like to start to use the RAW format too.

Now, my question is about how to learn to use an appropriate sw. I know that one of the most common is Lightroom, but I use to work with Ubuntu (anyway, I have WinXP too).

Having said that, I guess that I'll focus my attention on DigiKam and Darktable. Unfortunately, there aren't books or video tutorial like those that I found on Lightroom.

For this reason, I thought to start with Lightroom, just to learn enough about management pics and converting RAW and, then, move to DigiKam and Darktable. I guess that the functions are similar, aren't they?

So, what do you think about it? Maybe a good idea? Or it's only a waste of time?

I am so confusing...:-|

Thanks a lot!!!
