Class 2: Quick & Easy Editing

Easy & Fast Shortcuts!
I’ve been editing since Photoshop 4. I know the key to getting amazing photos is getting the shot in focus and getting exposure right in camera, then finishing your vision with editing.

We’ve got great fast tricks for

  • accurate color – works every time!
  • highlights & shadows with detail with 2 clicks
  • straightening and cropping shortcuts

  • noise reduction
  • Sharpening everything BUT your subject’s skin
  • and much more!

Class 4: More Advanced Editing + Sharing & Output

Now that your photos look so amazing, how do you share them and print them? You’ll be filling your walls with the best images you’ve ever printed.

Who should take this class: Lightroom Classic users: perfect for anyone from beginner to pro, new users as well as experienced users. We’re covering best practices for importing, sorting, organizing – no matter who you are.
