Effortless Editing with Lightroom

Would you be interested in a simple method for editing your pictures so beautifully that your friends begged you for prints?

About this course

Do you know how to use Lightroom to bring out the details hidden inside your images?

Lightroom is a great program, but with countless sliders and tools… it’s hard to know how (and when) to use each of them.

That’s why I was a lousy editor when I first started using Lightroom.

I often overedited my shots. And it took hours to process the photos from a single shoot.

But that all changed when I attended a private workshop. And I learned how to edit hundreds of photos to perfection in only 15 minutes

My instructor was Casey Kiernan (he created the Milky Way and Time-Lapse courses with me).

He’s been giving workshops on Lightroom for more than a decade. And he was kind enough to share his secrets in our course “Effortless Editing with Lightroom”.

In this course you’ll learn:

  • How and when to use every slider, filter, brush, and feature
  • Our unique approach to bringing out the hidden details in a photo
  • Professional methods to sharpen each image to perfection

The course has since been updated to include the latest LR features. And the training works on all versions, including Classic CC and Lightroom CC.

If you look at my sliders, you may expect to see extreme changes to my photos. But everything works in a balance.

Simple tips like how to bring out the sky can make all the difference.

Once you understand how Lightroom features work, processing becomes fun and fast.

If you want to experience this for yourself, then you need “Effortless Editing with Lightroom”.

With this training, editing hundreds of photos at once will become second nature to you. And you can spend more time shooting and less time editing.

You’ll also be able to breathe new life into old photos that just needed the right tweaks in Lightroom.
