About This Class


Struggling to get your newborn images to look natural yet beautiful? I will teach you how to edit your newborn images easily in Photoshop and Lightroom with the aim of preserving baby's skintone and texture and not to over-edit their delicate features but to rather let their natural beauty shine through.  

PLEASE NOTE:  If you do not use Lightroom, or want to skip that part of the processing workflow or even those that want to save the expense of buying the presets for Lightroom, please check out my class on how to edit in Photoshop only! There I will also show you how to edit in Adobe Camera Raw which is the part of Photoshop that deals with RAW images.

But if you do make use of both Lightroom and Photoshop you will learn the following in this class:

Import to Lightroom

Cull your images in Lightroom

Edit in Lightroom

Edit in Photoshop

It isn't necessary to buy presets or actions, but if there's something out there that can make your life a little easier, why not? 

I hope you enjoy my class!
