Lightroom edit

Photo provided by: Ashlee Nicole Photography.

The top image is the original straight out of camera. Did I edit the second image in Photoshop? Nope!

Dodge and Burn. Change colors. Sharpen. Highlight recovery. Just a few of the tools I used, in Lightroom Classic, to transform this image!

“This step by step course is even for me as a Pro Photographer fantastic ! Lots of features I was not even aware of.

Its Lightroom from beginning to the end!

The open forum and the search engine makes it all complete. Quick answers and a real community!

All the best credits for the creator. Happy I purchased this course and looking forward to all new courses (maybe) to come 🙂

Best regards from the Netherlands”

Map Module

Map Module

Have fun getting organized

The Map Module offers another opportunity for organizing your images.  This time, it’s a little bit more fun vs. the Library Module.

Imagine seeing a world map with all your images placed in the exact geographic location you took the photo!  That’s what the Map Module is all about.  And I’ll show you everything you need to know about using the Map Module.

“I have started using Lightroom since the very first version and very happy with this Adobe software. But this is my first Lightroom online course. I have been using books and youtube explanations, but I have never taken a real online course.

I’m only starting, just 9 lectures, and I love the way Chris explains the different features. It’s clear he does know Photography, he knows Lightroom and Photoshop and, the most important point, he knows how to transfer his powerful knowledge to students.

Since English is not my first language, but Spanish (I’ve lived in USA from 1981 through 1983) I give a lot of weight to the accent, pronunciation and the way the teacher explains himself.

So I have to tell you CONGRATULATIONS. It’s very easy to understand the way you explain yourself. Your English is crystal clear and so far your explanations are very easy to understand for people with another native language and some level of knowledge in English.

Thank you very much!”

Book Module

Create books + albums

Discover the Book Module and learn how to create books and albums. Then, export to Blurb to have your finished book, well, printed!

You’ll learn how to add multiple images per page, re-size, and more.

Add text

Have something to say?  I’ll show you how to add some text to your pages too.

Tom Palacios

“I knew a little bit of LR. This course was wonderful. You will understand everything of the software and a lot of tricks also. I loved it because im a photographer and its clearly made for us.

Chris is a wonderful teacher, clear and easy to follow. Look forward to take another one with you!”

Slideshow Module

Yes, this was created in the Slideshow Module!

Create a slideshow!

Static images are boring.  Grab your favorite photos to create a slideshow and export for use on Facebook, your blog, or anywhere else online.

Music + audio

Spice up your slideshow with some music or audio.  It’s a piece of cake.  I’ll show you how.

Pan + zoom

This isn’t just another boring slideshow of one image after another.  Nope, you’ll learn some studio magic by adding some special effects: Pan + Zoom.

Save & re-use

Now that you’ve spent all that time creating the perfect slideshow it’s time to save it as a template.  Perfect for re-using again.

Scott Anderson

“Brilliant course… I have learned so much from this.”

Print Module

photo collage

This photo collage template is 1 of 45 free templates included with this class.  I’ll show you how to add your own logo or remove it altogether.

Photo collages are for Photoshop only. Not!

Oh, and how to save them as templates to be re-used again, and again.

In-home printer or pro lab?

Do you have an in-home printer?  Or maybe you want to do some print enlargements at your favorite pro lab?

Either way, you’ll learn how to add multiple images per sheet.  Perfect for maximizing your paper and reducing costs.

Free templates included

Then, I’ll show you how to create your own custom photo collages!

Denzel Modeste

I am halfway through this course and I must say Chris is VERY THOROUGH in his explanation. I especially appreciate the example photos that’s available for download and how you can pause and practice on the same photo that he is using in the video.

I STRONGLY suggest doing this course if you are serious about photography and want to use it as a means of income.

Web Module

Free online galleries

It’s time to share your photos with the world!  There’s no better way then creating a photo gallery of your best images.

With the Web Module you’ll learn how to create a free online gallery!

Free Course Updates — For LIFE!

Lightroom changes fast, and new versions will come out in the future with new functions. But once you’ve enrolled in this course (when a la carte is purchased), you’re my student for life, and I will commit to your development.

That means that whenever I update this course, in the future to cover newer versions of Lightroom, you’ll get full access to those tutorials too — absolutely free. Think of it as my gift to you for investing in yourself.

And in case you weren’t yet convinced whether it’s worth trying the course, don’t worry. It comes with my personal, 30 day money back, guarantee…

“Lightroom just isn’t user friendly?”

I was asking some photographers recently about their thoughts on Lightroom, and it didn’t sound good.

Check out some of the comments I received:

“There are absolutely no instructions that come with Lightroom. You will be staring at your computer screen wondering what to do next.

Therefore, you will need to purchase a separate manual that tells you what you must know in order just to understand what to do! Without a manual, you are completely dead in the water.”

“Lightroom is not as intuitive as one would hope.”

“The website made Lightroom look soooooo easy to use… [but] apparently, I don’t have enough Doctoral, Masters’ and Bachelor’s degrees to use this product. And I am pretty gadget and computer savvy!”

“Lightroom is a little difficult to operate at first… the EASE of use with this program is not the greatest!”

“Very intimidating at first, especially not being very familiar with some of the terms.”

“I was hoping it would be more intuitive than it is, but it appears that I will need some training to get true value from the software…”

“Lightroom is not an intuitive product. I often question whether it is worth the time.”

“Lightroom requires a degree, in their software, in order to get anything substantial accomplished.”

Does that sum up your thoughts of Lightroom too?

Well, it doesn’t have to be that way

Still Not Sure?

I’ve spent months working on this course (and more to keep it up to date), to make sure it covers absolutely everything you could want to know, explained in the simplest way possible.

So I am extending my personal guarantee, as a fellow photographer, that you will love this course — or I’ll give you back every cent you paid for it.

I encourage you to take the WHOLE Lightroom Made Easy Tutorials. Watch all the lessons, use the practice photos I provide, and spend some time with Lightroom testing out what you’ve learned.

If you find that you’re using Lightroom faster than ever before, I’ll be overjoyed.

If you aren’t 100% satisfied — and I mean, if you’re even just 1% unhappy — I want you to let me know. I mean it; I don’t want your money. I value our relationship, and my reputation, way more than $49.

So if at ANY TIME during the course — heck, even 29 days after you started it — you don’t feel like you’re getting what you paid for, contact me and I’ll give you a refund straight away. No questions asked.

But I’m so confident that you’re going to love this course, I don’t think you will even need to think about this guarantee. I just want you to know it’s there — so there is ZERO risk to you by trying my course.

F.A.Q.

This Lightroom Pro tutorial includes everything you need to know to get started with Lightroom.  In fact, this class is perfect for beginners.

You’ll also find file resources to use along with the class… to practice what you learn.  

Absolutely! I’ve designed this course for anyone who has absolutely NO prior knowledge about Lightroom. I will take you from the very basics and show you all you need to know.

Yes!  This is one of many Pro tutorials available to subscribers.  

Click here to find out more and get started learning new Lightroom skills.

All Pro tutorials are only available online. We do not offer the ability to download tuts.

Our free tutorials focus on a single skill or technique.

Our Pro tutorials cover additional techniques, more detail and depth about the subject.

Plus, Pro subscribers receive premium support to questions and more. Oh, and the Pro tutorials also include additional resources vs. free tutorials.

This Pro Lightroom tutorial was created in Lightroom CC Classic.  There are additional tutorials for Lightroom  CC (cloud version). 

You can also follow along with Lightroom 6.  However, there are some new tools/features in Lightroom CC Classic that are not in Lightroom 6.

Yes! All Pro tutorial resources are yours for life. However, all images provided are for training purposes only.

You cannot share, sell or use any images for your portfolio.  All images are copyrighted by Parker Photographic.

You’ll have access to a “classroom” where you can ask questions.

Absolutely! You’re welcome to skip over the foundational material if you know it already. I’ve loaded this course with some of my best and most advanced tips, tools, and hacks for radically improving your workflow in Lightroom.

Even if you’re a seasoned pro, I guarantee there’s something in here you’ve never seen before.

The thing is, a lot of people — even some of the ‘successful’ people in this field who are selling very expensive tutorials — use techniques that are inefficient, imperfect, or just plain wrong!

To someone like me, who’s spent almost a decade using Lightroom and knows it from end to end, it frustrates me to see people getting bad advice.

So even if you’ve experienced “bad” tutorials on Youtube or someplace else, you’ll get something out of my tutorials.

And unlike manuals or YouTube tutorials, you get personal access to me — to ask anything that you might get stuck on.
