My online Lightroom courses concentrate on processing your images in the Develop Module. They’re designed to help you get the most out of your photographs, and enhance your original vision without making the images look unnatural.
But of course there are other aspects of Lightroom. The most important of these – and the part that often causes the most trouble and confusion for people – is the organizational part: importing, setting up folder structures, sorting images, finding images, and so on.
I often get asked whether I can recommend a book or course about that organizational aspect of Lightroom, and I’m happy to say that I finally can. Our friend Chrissy Donadi just launched her Lightroom course called Let’s Get Organized! It’s a thorough, comprehensive look at how to efficiently setup, organize, and maintain your photo library in Lightroom Classic. Chrissy does a great job of explaining everything clearly, with all the information you need – but not more than you need.
So whether you’re new to Lightroom and want to start off on the right foot, or you’re a Lightroom veteran looking to gain control of your Lightroom catalog, I highly recommend this course.
Chrissy has graciously extended a discount to my subscribers: you can use the code FRYE20 to get 20% until May 1st. (I don’t get any commission from this; I just think this is a course that many of my readers would be interested in.) Click the link below to find out more or sign up:
