Sept 29 Workshop: Developing Photos in Lightroom

After the first part of our Lightroom workshop series 2018 in June, about organizing photos, we’re now looking at Developing Photos in Lightroom.

We’re working in Adobe Lightroom Classic CC – the most recent version of the desktop software, but most of what we’re covering will also apply to older versions of Lightroom of course, as well as Lightroom CC, the cloud and mobile device version of Lightroom.
