"I can wholeheartedly recommend this course. I consider myself an intermediate/advanced used of Lightroom CC on a laptop. But I was self-taught and learned by just playing with sliders to see what each would do. John's very well-thought-out and presented course was, for me, a great review AND showed me a few buttons I hadn't noticed before. Some other courses I have tried were just a person winging it and the results were slow and haphazard. John has systematically presented his process in both words and sample photos. I am very glad I took it." - Nancy N

Unlocking Lightroom CC

Adobe's mobile version of Lightroom (also known as Creative Cloud) is an incredibly powerful yet intimidating app.
And it's not just for smartphone photography enthusiasts. Professionals, including myself, use it as a primary backup, organization, editing, and publishing suite while on the road.
The learning curve can be steep, but this Lightroom CC course will help you learn everything it can do for you in a simple, concise manner.
