Stop Wasting Time and Learn to Master Image Editing in Lightroom & Photoshop

Great for Any Experience Level

You don't need to be a master of these programs to benefit from these instructional classes! Each course provides step-by-step guidance to both the thought process and tools to adjust and enhance your images. From beginner to advanced users, everyone can use these techniques to bring out the full beauty in their photographs.

Step-by-Step Learning

Since each course is presented in a series of shorter videos, you can learn at your own pace and stop and start as you follow along. All of the image files used in the demonstrations are included with each course so you can see how each step of the editing process affects each image.

No More Frustrating Images! Each course is presented in individual video demonstrations that take you step-by-step through the process to adjust image files that are well exposed, but completely lacking in color, contrast and tonality. Learn how to adjust your image files to unlock the full beauty they contain!

Six Courses Available

Individual courses are available based on specific needs. For the two basic areas of interest - Landscape and Portraits - there is a Lightroom and Photoshop Course for each focus. Keep in mind that if the subject has eyes - it’s a portrait! Pets and wildlife will greatly benefit from the techniques presented in the portraits classes. The Lightroom Courses cover most all of the editing tools in the Develop Module to shape and enhance your images. You will be taken step-by-step through the thought process and approach to bring out all of the beauty that remains hidden in your raw captures. The Photoshop Courses pick up where Lightroom leaves off and covers more advanced topics that only Photoshop can accomplish. Adding skies, moving objects, reshaping areas of an image, color corrections and more are covered in each Photoshop Course.

All Four Courses Complement Each Other!

Even though the Courses are labeled as “Landscape” and “Portrait” Editing, the different approaches and techniques covered apply to the other focus. Topics covered in the Portrait Editing courses apply to Landscapes and topics covered in the Landscape Editing courses are very useful for Portrait editing.
