Software and Editing Classes

A Practical Image Organization, Editing, and Exporting Workflow using Lightroom Classic

Course Overview

This 3-part webinar provides a practical workflow for using Lightroom as a complete organizing, editing, and exporting software. Each module provides easy to understand, step-by-step instructions on managing and enhancing digital images to produce high-quality output. Topics are presented and explained in simple terms so students can quickly grasp the concepts and immediately put the instruction into practice.

Important: Please note that we will be using Lightroom Classic and NOT Lightroom CC. Make sure you are using the most up to date version of Lightroom Classic before enrolling.

What You'll Learn

You will learn a practical workflow that allows you to effectively organize, enhance, and prepare digital image files to print for yourself or your customers at a professional lab.

Tuition: $149.00


Students should obtain a subscription to and install Lightroom Classic Prior to the first session. Students do not need to have experience with Lightroom before the first session, but having images ready to import or having a catalogue already created will prove helpful. Moreover, to get the most out of this class, you will want to be shooting your images in RAW quality. 

Each session will be recorded for attendees to review for up to 7 days after.
