How do I access the videos included with my book?

Use the sdp.io links embedded throughout the books to access your videos.

For the Lightroom book, you can access the videos directly from this site. If you bought the book from this site, just click this link. If it doesn't work, make sure you're logged in with the account you used to purchase the book. If it still doesn't work, open a support request and we'll help out.

If you bought the book elsewhere (such as Amazon), follow these instructions to create an account and send us your proof of purchase. After you're registered, you'll be able to use this link.

How can I access your videos when I don't have an Internet connection?

Our videos are very large--the Lightroom book videos are about 64GB--so downloading them isn't practical, and they won't fit on a DVD. For the Lightroom book, we'll ship the videos to you on a memory card or flash drive, for a small fee (plus the cost of the drive).

How do I download the ebook?

If you bought your book directly from this site, use the Download link in the SDP, Buying Guide, or Lightroom menus on this site.

If you bought the book elsewhere (such as Amazon), follow these instructionsto create an account and send us your proof of purchase. After you're registered, you'll be able to use the Download links in the SDP, Buying Guide, or Lightroom menus on this site. If it doesn't work, make sure you're logged in with the account you used to purchase the book. If it still doesn't work, open a support request and we'll help out.

How do I copy the ebook to my Kindle?

The easiest way is usually to use the web browser in your Kindle to visit this site (SDPCommunity.com). Login using the link in the upper-right corner. Then, open the Download link in the SDP, Buying Guide, or Lightroom menus on this site.

From the download pages, click/tap the .Mobi ebook version, which is designed for Kindle.

Unfortunately, we can't support Kindle or other ereaders--but Amazon has an excellent support system. This page shows you how to transfer a file to your Kindle with a USB cable.

How do I copy the ebook to my iPad, iPhone, or other e-reader?

The easiest way is usually to use the web browser in your tablet, smartphone, or e-reader to visit this site (SDPCommunity.com). Login using the link in the upper-right corner. Then, open the Download link in the SDP, Buying Guide, or Lightroom menus on this site.

From the download pages, click/tap the .epub ebook version, which is designed for any e-reader.

Just like a musician can't help you troubleshoot copying an MP3 music file to your player, we can't support the devices themselves. However, if you google "copy epub to iPad", "copy ePub to iPhone", "copy epub to Android tablet", etc., you can probably find a helpful web page.

How do I get the free updates?

If you bought the book from this site, I'll send you an email when an update is available. You'll be able to download an electronic update, even if you bought a paperback book. If you bought the book somewhere else, follow these instructions to supply your proof-of-purchase and email address.
