Adobe Lightroom Classic is by far the best image viewing-, sorting- and editing software available to photographers, and there’s no better person than seasoned professional photographer, Villiers Steyn, to teach you how it works. It acts as a one-stop-shop for amateur and professional photographers, overcoming the need to jump between older viewing programs like Adobe Bridge and Photoshop.
Even though it’s a very user-friendly program, Lightroom Classic can be intimidating to first-time users who don’t understand exactly how the software ‘communicates’ with their computer and hard drives, where their photos are stored. And that’s how this course was born: To help beginners who are new to Lightroom Classic to completely understand it right from the start, making their lives a million times easier in the long run…
What is Adobe Lightroom Classic and how does it differ from normal Lightroom?
It’s VERY important that you don’t get confused by the two! Lightroom Classic, covered in this course, is a program that is used by photographers to view, sort, process and export their images for use elsewhere. Normal Lightroom is a cloud-based sharing program that then shares those exported files (or any other photos for that matter), between your devices – your computer, tablet and smartphone. Normal Lightroom is not covered in this course.
