How to edit photos in Lightroom

Lightroom is a great tool to help you manage and edit your photography, but it doesn’t always make this easy. In fact, it contains many tools, and it can be confusing to know which ones to use. In this course, we look at the most effective of these editing tools and how you can use them to transform your images.

The tools we cover are explained clearly, with many examples to help you understand how you can use them. You will learn how to make selections in Lightroom to change specific areas of a photo, remove unwanted objects in an image, create special effects, and convert images to black and white. And a whole lot more in ten information-packed lessons.
