Learn Lightroom in a week

I regularly recommend the use of Lightroom as my preferred RAW conversion software. There may be others that are more refined but I’m not a refined sort of guy, LR has everything I need to make global alterations to an image. The setting of perfect exposure and colour, the bringing back of blown highlights or opening up the shadows. The many options it has as a way of improving an image and then the opportunity to apply presets that give a defined different look to the image as well as the chance to create my own presets are essential. My favourite place for presets is Preset Heaven. I use the cataloging systems to organise my images, I don’t need the keywording facilities much but appreciate their ease of use when I do. As a piece of software I find it essential and a joy to use.

I have people asking if I will run a course on LR but to me it seems so easy to use that I am not sure what I would teach except what seems obvious. There are some magnificent tutorials on line for Lightroom and one of the best that we have featured before is
