Login information will be emailed to all registered students no later than 24 hours before the first class session.

Let us teach you the ins and outs of image editing using the Adobe Lightroom Develop Module. In this unique class, students will receive exclusive access to tailor-made pre-recorded videos from our own Lightroom guru, Forest Chaput de Saintonge. These videos will thoroughly explain each editing topic and "slider" prior to each live session with Sarah Chaput de Saintonge, our own master of color.

The best part about this class is twofold!

1. You get to keep over THREE HOURS of pre-recorded videos forever! That means endless hours reviewing and practicing the techniques taught in this short (but awesome) course.

2. During the live sessions, YOUR submitted images will be critiqued and edited in real time by Sarah. This is one of the best ways to learn! Watch an expert give valuable feedback while making appropriate adjustments to the photos you’re trying to perfect — all while demonstrating the tools you learned about in the videos and answering your questions!

Topics include:

  • Histograms
  • The Basic Panel
  • Cropping
  • Zooming
  • History Panel
  • HSL
  • Calibration
  • Tone curve
  • Local Adjustments
  • Exporting

NOTE: Participants must already have Adobe Lightroom Classic installed on your computer and have basic knowledge of navigating the software. If you have questions about these processes, check out our YouTube channel for helpful review.
