Editing your images is an essential part of the creative process and is the equivalent of darkroom work in analog photography. It allows you to reinterpret and fine-tune your artistic vision. With its ability to organise and share large quantities of images and its tool set for sophisticated editing, Adobe Lightroom Classic is the software platform of choice for professional photographers.

In this 10 hour course you will learn to establish the entire editing workflow from start to finish, starting with archive creation, options to store and manage you files, to professional editing strategies and export your images for different applications, like social media, print or webpages.

What is the course about?

The art of image editing holds immense importance in photography, as nearly all of the visually stunning images we encounter have experienced some degree of retouching.

In this 10 hour course, you will learn the complete image editing workflow from start to finish, following straightforward and logical steps. Guided by an experienced professional photographer, you will explore the full potential of Adobe Lightroom’s advanced file management capabilities, filter functions, and professional editing features.

The course will also cover essential topics such as external file storage and backup solutions to safeguard your valuable image files, as well as how to create a well-organised archive. Throughout the course, you will receive personalised feedback on your work and have the opportunity to submit and analyse reference images, which will help you emulate and define your unique editing style. In the final chapter, you will learn how to export your images and optimise them for various applications, including print, social media, and website use.
