Adobe Lightroom Training
Adobe Photoshop revolutionized the way photographs are edited and used two decades before. After that, Adobe took the idea one step ahead and raised curtains for Adobe Lightroom software. It is an end to end solution for the photographers to color correct, review, organize and enhance the look and the feel of their photographs. With the help of the Lightroom users can also create photo books, web galleries, presentation documents and deliver high-quality printing outputs.
No matter you use Lightroom as an individual or for commercial purposes, every variant is simple, straight forward and pretty easy to use. It gives a great level of control to the user like no other image editing software did. Through this application, it is easily possible to manage and edit large batches of images and apply effects or change the features of the photographs as per your intention. Lightroom can produce photographs with great outputs irrespective of the medium it is used, so you can effortlessly put the photographs to use in both print and web mediums.
If you ever worked on a photo editing software, you will surely find a great deal of difference between using another set of applications and Adobe Lightroom. Color correcting and editing your images through Lightroom is fun, easier and productive. All of it is possible because of the wonderful workflow the software offers.
- Managing your photos files in the catalogs is simple and easy.
- Non-destructive photo editing (which intelligently stores the edited information of your images in a central catalog file) helps to save the set of editing information you have carried on but the original image will be intact allowing you to go back to the photo file at any time of the correction.
- The software also allows you to open a third party image editor if you want to edit a particular image for a specified effect within Lightroom. By opening the external application through the software, Lightroom will keep track of the edits done on the image file. The application offers various methods of editing and saving settings for various image file formats. The edited copies are automatically added to the Lightroom catalog.
Adobe Lightroom is not just a software application that corrects and edits your images. It is a workflow which helps you easily organize and carry on your work with so many worthy features that will help you save your time and efforts on a grand scale.

From this section onwards, we will take you through the practical exercises that will teach you the most important and most common tools and features of the Adobe Lightroom in an explicit way. Few of the common challenges to the beginner and intermediate level students and freshers who enter the digital photo editing industry is to deal with a variety of photographs shot at various time of the day. Dealing with such scenario is an everyday job in the domain and to become a professional photographer you should learn how to deal with such situations.
To tackle this problem, we planned six exercise lectures dealing with different photographs from diverse color tones and tints. We start with working on a baby image to show, how to maintain the softness yet enhance the quality and effect of the image. Later we take you through an outdoor image and show you how to correct the scenery and control light and fog that are natural in the outdoor and landscape photographs. You will learn in-depth about the color casting techniques and how to use the filter effects in Adobe Lightroom. At the end of the section, you will learn how to control the hard sunlight in your photographs.
Section 3- Face Corrections
We continue to take example exercise files in this third and final section of the course. Our prime focus in this section will be targeted towards the Human face and skin clearing, color enhancing and editing techniques. However, we are not limited to these topics but we will also explore various methods to edit photographs with sky and water bodies.
The first lecture talks about the face editing. Here, you will learn about how to control the shadows, edit the blemishes on the photograph and enhance the look and color of the photos adding more beauty to the photographs. We will jump deep into the similar topic and talk about the advanced topics in the second lecture of the section. Here, we will discuss in depth about color correcting the human skin and face and to be sure about maintaining the same tone throughout the visible skin on the body to produce a harmonious look that enriches the experience of watching the photograph.
The later portions of the sections deal with correcting the images that are shot in the outdoors, especially containing huge water bodies, sky, and the horizon. These images inadvertently catch the fog in the atmosphere which is usually not visible to the naked eye but always present there. It disturbs the quality of the image and leaves a vague picture. You will know how to deal with such images and bring out crystal clear pictures with the help of Adobe Lightroom.
The conclusion lecture will discuss the contents of the course one more time and leaves few quick tips.

Frequently Asked Questions:
- Why should I take this course as I already know how to correct images in Photoshop?
If Photoshop can fulfill every task of Lightroom as easily as the application does, Adobe would not plan to launch separate software for color correction and editing purposes. Firstly, Photoshop has crossed the limits of the photo-editing long back. Now it is perceived as an omnipresent software that fulfills every requirement of diverse graphic designing domains. However, in this Adobe did not want photo editing to be a part of the Industries it serves because of several reasons and Lightroom in launched.
Lightroom works quickly and comfortably for numerous photo editing requirements of its users. There are features that are powered to change the tone and look of the photographs instantly. The same process in many conditions should be adjusted in Photoshop on a manual level and the features that are similar in both software are also not boosted for editing purposes in Photoshop. So, it really makes sense to learn Adobe Lightroom for Photo editing purposes rather working for long hours on your Photoshop edition.
- I am a Photographer working on other photo editing software? What is my advantage for learning Lightroom?
There are countless photo-editing software in the market and countless open source applications and apps people can download and use. But, none of them can be compared to the level and quality of the Adobe Lightroom. It is the undisputed leader in the domain, powered with the tools and features that promise crystal clear photographs delivered within few easy steps.
Besides the numerous color corrections and touching tools that aren’t available in any of other software. The application offers valuable features as batch editing, enhanced workflow, and Non-destructive editing. Above all you always the Adobe’s quality and creative promise that keeps you on the top in your profession.
I really liked the practical approach of these guys. I gained theoretical knowledge of many designing software but when I tried to apply the use on a practical level, I always had hard times. So, I chose this course looking at the exercises they included within the curriculum. The instructor is good in explaining the tools he is using and immediately showing us how to use the tool in a real time environment. I strongly recommend this course .
