In this Lightroom tutorial, we'll learn the fundamental tools, techniques, and workflows for Lightroom CC. While Photoshop has become a household term, with its many tools for organizing and editing a large number of photos, Lightroom is the industry standard tool for professional photographers around the world. Throughout this course, we'll look at the tools and workflows you'll need to know for organizing and editing your photos. By the end of this Lightroom training, you'll have the knowledge you need to dive in and start using Lightroom in your own projects right away.

Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone. My name is Dan LeFebvre. I've had the pleasure of working as a 3D generalist for about 12 years now in a wide range of companies from ad studios to the U. S. Military and currently I'm working at Digital-Tutors. Although much of my career has been working in 3D, I've been using Lightroom for all of my professional and personal photography projects for nearly a decade, really since Lightroom 1 was first released by Adobe back in 2007. In this course we're going to get an introductory look at working in Lightroom. We'll start by learning how to navigate around Lightroom, from there we'll look at some of the core features before walking through a typical photography project where we'll look at everything from importing and developing photos, creating panoramas and HDRs, and of course taking advantage of the Creative Cloud by using Lightroom for mobile. By the end of this training you'll be ready to start using Lightroom to speed up your own photography projects. I'm excited to share these tips and techniques with you, so with that, let's get started with the first lesson.
