Lightroom in easy steps


Lightroom in easy steps begins by looking at the desktop, mobile and web versions of Lightroom and shows how they can be used individually and together to effortlessly capture, edit, and share photos between your devices. This provides a one-stop-shop for all of your photography needs, whether you are at home or at different locations capturing photos. 

Lightroom has a sophisticated range of color editing tools, for fine-tuning every aspect of a photo. These are looked at in detail, so you can master all of the techniques required to edit your photos to your own exact requirements, and include: 

  • Profiles, which are preset options that can apply a range of editing elements to photos, mostly unprocessed ones (RAW). Once a profile has been created, it can be used on
    similar photos to create a consistent appearance. If required, additional editing can be undertaken once a profile has been applied. 
  • Light, including exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, whites, and blacks. 
  • Color, including white balance, temperature, tint, black and white, vibrance, hue, saturation, and luminance.
  • Targeted adjustment, including the Tone Curve and the Color Mixer.
  • Effects, including texture, clarity, dehaze, and vignette.
  • Detail, including sharpening - to improve the focus of a photo - reducing color noise, and applying film grain effects.
  • Optics, for correcting camera lens issues for digital photos, including chromatic aberration, lens corrections, and defringing.
  • Geometry, which can be used to edit the geometric perspective in photos - for instance if buildings do not initially appear straight.

The book also covers the 40+ preset editing techniques that can be applied to photos in a single click, how to manage and handle your photos, the search options so you never lose track of any of your photos, and how to share your photos. But Lightroom is not just about editing and managing photos; it can also be used to edit and enhance videos too, and Lightroom in easy steps shows how you can ensure that your videos are expertly fine-tuned for any use.

Finally, Lightroom in easy steps looks at the companion app that is provided free of charge with Lightroom: Adobe Express. This can be used to make customized posters and images for social media posts and is a great way to let your creative side run wild. 

Lightroom in easy steps demystifies the latest developments in the world of digital photo editing, organizing, sharing, and storing so that all of your attention can be focused on making your photos as stunning as possible.
