Lightroom Classic Photo Editing Course: Beginners

What you'll learn

Learn how to stylishly edit photographic images with our photography short courses in Sydney!

Join this class to make Lightroom your starting point for professional-level photo editing.

Lightroom Classic is built specifically to handle the entire photographer workflow, from photo management to finishing touches, smoothly and efficiently – and is perfect for dedicated amateurs, weekend photo-warriors, and working professionals.  Lightroom is unquestionably the best tool to manage and process the thousands of photos that live on your devices. 

After you've imported your files, move to the Develop module to enhance and edit photos. Here you can tweak your settings to improve every aspect of your photo. Enhance the light, colour, texture, clarity and sharpness; correct lens aberrations and distortions, adjust scene and object perspectives, transform warped images, and add creative effects to make your images shine. 

Lightroom Classic presets are a time-saving feature that makes light work of applying the same settings to one or countless images, known as batch edits. You can create your own presets or download a wide variety of presets.

Lightroom uses non-destructive editing, which means you can make changes to a photo without altering the original file in any way - your original stays protected. If you work with raw files, you’ll benefit from the intensity and flexibility that raw images give you when editing, without losing any of the original data.

Why join this course?  Editing is now 50% of Photography.  Every worthwhile image is improved significantly.
