The fast track to success
What if you could easily import photos into Lightroom Classic, work through the shoot quickly and select your keepers, then confidently edit droolworthy images …and have time to capture more amazing moments?
Lightroom Classic is more than a photo editing program, it’s also a powerful photo management system. These two essential aspects of digital photography, plus the non-destructive nature of Lightroom editing, make Lightroom the most popular choice with photographers.
Lightroom is perfect for all levels of photography, starting with beginners. It's especially essential if you shoot in RAW, because RAW photos need to be processed.
You have to learn how to use one of the software options available. It may as well be the best!

Jane is a full time professional photographer and Lightroom tutor.
She's been obsessed with photography since she was 7. She started freelancing as an assistant photographer to commercial and fashion photographers in 1996 and branched out on her own in 1999.
In 2007 she made the switch to digital photography and started using Lightroom a few months after it was released. It soon became the backbone of her busy portrait photography business.
Since then she's made every mistake possible with Lightroom before developing a rock solid filing and backup system in 2016, which has grown with her.
For the last 13 years all her shoots have been processed in Lightroom, with just the occasional use of Photoshop for more specialist adjustments.
Jane loves Lightroom, but she loves taking photos more, so she's developed a speedy workflow for beautifully edited photos in as little time as possible.
And she can't wait to show you how!
