X-Transformer Book First Update Now Available

I’ve just published the first update to my X-Transformer guide. This update is free to anyone who has already purchased the book. It contains a number of fixes for a few mistakes that made it through (sorry about that!). I’ve also added a few extra sections based on feedback from readers of the first version. Here’s a breakdown of what’s changed:

1. Fixed some typos

2. Added Missing Panel In lens corrections section

3. Added section on Saving out Metadata from Lightroom

4. Added notes on possible PC limitations to using drag and drop

5. Fixed incorrect naming of menu item for saving metadata to disk

6. Added additional workflow

7. Added some suggestions for using the files with Capture One 10.1

8. Added table of contents and improved the layout

9. Now 35 pages

I want to thank everyone who purchased the guide. The response was greater than I was expecting. I also want to thank everyone who sent feedback, which has helped improve it, and I hope will continue to improve it going forward.

If you already purchased the guide, the update is available in your Downloads page under your account on my digital download store. It’s labelled with the postfix 1.1. For full details on how to upgrade see this post on my help centre:

Discussion and Community

Speaking of the help centre, I’ve added a new “Community” section to the help centre courtesy of the latest round of Zendesk updates. This is a kind of user forum, and so if you want to discuss the guide and make suggestions for future versions, or ask questions, you can do it there. I may not be able to answer immediately, but other users can chime in and help too. You can visit the community on my help centre here:

I’m still in the process of setting it up, so there aren’t many topics there yet, but feel free to use it. I will be adding more topics and content to it if there’s interest, but it’s a good way to discuss things. It will be moderated though, so be nice!
