How to use Lightroom Classic - Import, Edit & Export

Hi , 

Using Lightroom Classic from the beginning of your editing process will ensure you have a tidy, easy to navigate workflow when it comes to finding and retrieving your images. No messy hard drives or unlabelled folders with random images in, this session will start you off on the right foot.

Lightroom Classic Compared To Photoshop

Lightroom Classic is, what I call, the user friendly version of Photoshop. If you have used Photoshop but not yet explored Lightroom Classic, this piece of software will blow your mind! Whenever Lightroom is updated, Adobe appear to be taking something Photoshop can do and making it way simpler to implement whilst using Lightroom Classic. 

You will learn the most important aspects of Lightroom for image organisation and editing including:

How to import images
Organising Images and Folders
Embedding Keywords for SEO
How to Edit in the Develop Module
How to Cull and Select Using Flags, Colours and Ratings
How to Use Previews and Virtual Copies
Using the Crop Tool Aspect Ratios and Anti Distortion Tools
How to Export Images for Different Uses
How to Use the Library Module 
and much more


What this course is about:

We take a deep dive into this software in an easy to follow, video based course that will clarify the key features in Lightroom Classic for organising, editing and saving your final images. 

Taught over 5 core lessons, we will break down the steps needed to use Lightroom Classic effectively and efficiently within your editing workflow.

Who is this course for?

This course is for Photographers who are ready to start editing their photos properly, those who have been winging it with editing software so far and for Marketing professionals who want to create professional looking imagery that is properly finished with SEO in mind.

What do you need for this course?

Ideally you will need to be shooting in RAW file format at this point but if you are not, look for the 'Quality' setting in your camera and set it either to RAW (Large if it gives you a small, medium or large option) or set it to RAW + JPEG if you aren't yet ready to go full RAW. 

You will also need a powerful enough computer to run Lightroom Classic, minimum requirements will be 8gb RAM. If you need help finding out your computer specifications check out the free guide in the resource library.

You will need a back up option, either an external harddrive or a cloud based subscription service.

I recommend sandisk, samsung or seagate for a solid state hard drive and dropbox or google drive cloud services.
