Creative (and Painless!) Photo Editing in Lightroom – LIVE w/ Jeff Carlson
Lightroom is one of the best photo editing ecosystems available, but Adobe doesn’t make it easy on us. Is Lightroom Classic too complicated? Is Lightroom desktop too basic? What about the Lightroom mobile apps? And why upload photos to the cloud? From importing to editing to output, there are so many options that it’s easy to put off editing for another day. But you went to all that trouble to go capture good photos—it’s time to make them fantastic.
Jeff Carlson, the author of the new book Adobe Lightroom Course and Compendium (Rocky Nook), is here to make sense of it all. We’ll walk through Lightroom workflows that respect your time and focus on creativity so you spend less energy on busywork and more on enjoying the process of creating great photos.
Covered in this class:
- Decide which versions of Lightroom are best for you
- Import images the smart way
- Library management that isn’t onerous
- Photo editing essentials, from tone and color to Denoise
- The power of masking
- Incorporating the mobile apps into your workflow
- Sharing your finished photos
Feel free to bring a computer and your images if you’d like, though they’re not required. Jeff will also have some photos available to work on to follow along in real time.
