Manage your photos and power your workflows with Lightroom Classic & Photoshop
If you feel that your photo management is at least a little out of control, or that your image editing and sharing workflows could be more streamlined, you’re not alone. It’s normal to have an uneasy relationship with the collection of photos. If you’d like to wrangle your photos more effectively and with more confidence, this course was designed for you!
Chances are, your photo collection has grown organically. You might have hundreds or even thousands of photos scattered across multiple hard drives and devices, and even in different systems such as Apple Photos and Lightroom Classic. If you’ve been using Lightroom Classic for a while, you might have encountered the dreaded missing file message, or maybe whole folders have gone missing. These complications can make it incredibly hard to retrieve photos, much less edit and share them.
This course was designed in response to a sizable number of students’ experiences over the fourteen years since Lightroom was first released. We’ll tackle how to organize and clean up and unify your photo archives so that you can retrieve, edit, and share shots quickly and efficiently. Best of all, you’ll probably find that the process is easier than you imagined!
