In this course, you’ll learn how to navigate Lightroom’s Develop module and make precise adjustments to your photos using the powerful tools it offers. By learning how to crop, straighten, and rotate images, you’ll be able to transform poorly composed shots into perfectly framed masterpieces. You’ll also learn how to set camera profiles and white balance, which can help you achieve accurate and consistent photo colours. By making exposure adjustments, you’ll be able to rescue over- or underexposed shots and get the perfect look for your images.
You’ll also learn how to make detail and lens corrections, which can help you fix common problems like distortion, chromatic aberration, and vignetting. By using masks to make selective adjustments, you’ll be able to apply edits only to specific areas of your photos, giving you precise control over your edits. And by learning how to remove objects, dust, and blemishes, you’ll be able to clean up your photos and eliminate distractions that can ruin an otherwise great shot.
You’ll also learn how to merge images for HDR and panoramas, which can help you capture a broader range of tones and create stunning, high-impact images. By changing colours and tones, and colour grading your photos, you’ll be able to create a cohesive look and achieve the perfect mood for your images. You’ll learn how to use virtual copies, snapshots, and synchronizing corrections to make non-destructive edits and keep your workflow efficient. And by creating develop presets, you’ll be able to quickly apply your favourite edits to multiple photos at once, saving you time and streamlining your workflow.
