About This Class

Welcome to Lightroom Classic CC Up To Speed: The Develop Module!

 This course helps you to get up and running quickly with Adobe’s powerful photo editing and management system. This handy step-by-step class starts from scratch, starting with basic Lightroom topics and moving on to more advanced features of the Develop module, designed to help you to become more productive more quickly.

 In no time at all you’ll be navigating Lightroom’s Develop Module interface: adjusting image exposure, clarity, vibrance and saturation; removing haze from images; adjusting shadows and highlights; changing color and adjusting white balance; using handy tools such as the Adjustment Brush, Graduated Filter and Range Masking tools;  cropping and straightening images; fixing perspective problems; creating panoramas and merging photos using HDR; and much more. 

Who is this course for?

This course was created for people new to photography as well as well-seasoned photographers looking to learn a new photo organizing and editing application.  This course will also be helpful for those coming from a previous version of Lightroom or those looking to delve more deeply into the Lightroom application. 

What does this course include?

  • Step-by-step instructional videos that are easy to follow
  • Downloadable lesson files allowing you to follow along with the instructor
  • Support for any questions you may have

What You’ll Learn:

  • Develop Module Basics. We’ll begin by looking at the difference between RAW vs JPEG processing. We’ll start out by choosing a camera profile as a starting point and make virtual copies of our images.  You’ll learn a bunch of Develop Module shortcuts as well as how to use third-party plug-ins.
  • Image Adjustment Basics: Next, we’ll dive into photo editing beginning with a Basic Panel.  You’ll learn how to adjust image exposure, contrast and clarity as well as tweak the vibrance and saturation.  We’ll discuss how to remove fog and haze from images, adjust the shadows and highlights and blacks and whites, and how to effectively use Lightroom’s Clipping Indicators.  

  • Working with Color: We’ll go in-depth working with Color in Lightroom.  You’ll learn how to set the white balance in an image as well as how to change color in an image.  We’ll convert an image to black and white, add some interesting effects using split toning, apply selective adjustments using the Adjustment Brush, add a gradient using the Graduated Filter tool and learn how to use Lightroom’s new Range Masking Feature.

  • Fixing Common Image Problems: To help you fix those pesky image problems, you’ll learn how to crop and straighten photos, remove spots and other image imperfections, and fix red-eye.  You’ll also make lens corrections, fix perspective problems and even rotate images. 

  • Beyond the Basics: In this section, we’ll move into some of the more advanced Lightroom editing features.  You’ll learn how to adjust contrast using Lightroom’s Tone Curve, adjust exposure using the Histogram and synchronize adjustments across multiple images.  You’ll also learn how to revert back to a previous state of an image using the History Panel and how to save image states using snapshots.  Then, you’ll learn how to merge multiple images into a panorama or an HDR image.  Additionally, you’ll learn how to use and create Develop Module presets as well as how to soft proof your images. 

  • Adding Effects and Finishing Touches: You’ll end by learning how to add those special finishing touches to an image. You’ll learn how to add a post-crop vignette, add grain, reduce color and luminance noise and sharpen your images.  We’ll also add a spotlight to areas of our image using Lightroom’s handy Radial Filter tool.

 By the end of this course, you’ll learn how to edit your images in Lightroom like a pro, allowing you to effectively move through your photography workflow with ease. 

I’m also here every step along the way for you so don’t hesitate to ask me any questions related to Lightroom or to the course content that come up as you journey through the course.  You can post your question in the course or fire me off a direct message.  Also, let me know if there’s any way I can improve this course.
