The Lightroom Mastery eBook
A Complete Guide to Working in Lightroom Classic CC
230+ pages packed to the brim with knowledge, advice, and training material to help you master Lightroom Classic CC.
This book will show you how to use Lightroom Classic to its full potential; not by droning repetitions of someone else’s editing style, but through teaching you the basic premises of the software using easy to understand, real-world language that will unlock your potential for learning.
Post-processing your digital photos is an integral part of the photographic experience. Your photographic experience. The digital photo which is left unprocessed is akin to a roll of film left in its canister, undeveloped and unseen. Every photograph you have ever seen has either been developed in a darkroom or processed digitally, or both.
We have designed this ebook to look great on many devices and offer a comfortable reading experience. The included PDF is perfect for reading on your desktop computer or tablet.
This ebook is broken down into 17 chapters that contain over 230 pages packed to the brim with knowledge, advices, tips & tricks, and training material to help you become a master of Lightroom Classic CC. Start making sense of all those sliders; learn to use Lightroom Classic CC like a pro!
