    Was surprised to not see a beginners image processing sticky that maybe had some links to some nice resources for beginners or youtube videos and what not? Curious if you guys had any recommendations? I've never done any sort of image processing, Adobe Lightroom was recommended to me, is that just an addon to PS? Or is it stand alone? My camera comes today so this is something I'll want to learn shortly :)

    The info you can use here in this forum really isn't really neatly compiled, but read through some threads and you'll learn a lot. I strongly suggest the Digital Photography School website - they have a ton of materials.

    I do all my processing in lightroom and found the following courses to be very helpful and worth the $ invested.
    The Luminous Landscape

    Ok thanks, That's mostly what I was talking about though maybe there should be a sticky with just links to helpful information and stuff located on the forum :) I'll give those sites a look though!

    Which video do you think would be best? Do I only need to purchase one? Such as

    Introduction & Advanced Guide to Lightroom 4

    Will that cover beginner stuff as well?

    Yes, intro and advanced is where I started. I used photo editing software such as elements and paint shop before i jumped to lightroom. There is also a section on the Adobe learning center that has some basic videos.
