Learn Lightroom

Adobe Creative Cloud Desktop Version Only


Lightroom is a powerful workflow management tool, an organizational tool, as well as a tool to enhance photos all within Lightroom or as a precursor to importing into Photoshop, if that's what you choose to do.  The Lightroom version I use is from the Adobe Creative Cloud package which means it is the most current version of Lightroom.  If you have another version, please call me to discuss.  

Lightroom is not an intuitive program and is much the same as learning to play the piano because, like the piano, it's virtually impossible to learn this program in one day.  However, take heart!  Lightroom takes much less time than Photoshop to learn, and I can get you going with just a few classes. 


Students who are familiar with LR can be taught via zoom which is easy to use and does not require an account or special software.

If you are a beginner, teaching in person is a must at first; however, due to COVID, I am not teaching in person at the moment.    


My fee is $60/hr.  The first class is a 90 minute minimum class to give you the best head start.  The fee should be made via paypal prior to our class and is non-refundable.  Your class will be confirmed once payment is received.  In the case of needing to reschedule an appointment, please request a change 24 hrs in advance and your fee will be transferred to a new date. (No shows will not receive refund.)


If you are a beginner, I suggest we do the course as listed below. If you know a little bit about Lightroom, you can pick and choose from the items below.  My goal is to give you the help you need and not repeat something you already know.  I'm flexible and would like to come up with a plan that works for you, so we can discuss a plan for you if you already have an idea of what you need to know.
