Chapter 1, 2 & 3 – Post Production & Local Adjustment Tool Basics


The first three chapters of the Image Processing Workshop (Digital Download) are designed to help those that are new to Lightroom image processing fully grasp and understand each image processing component of the Develop Module.

To begin building your Lightroom foundation, we move through nearly 20 exercise images. Each of the images are designed to address a specific function of the the Develop Module Panels and Local Adjustment Tools in complete detail.

Chapter 4 – Develop Module Workflow Considerations

Once we hit Chapter 4, we take a brief breather from image processing and discuss the components of the Develop Module that are particularly useful from a workflow and development standpoint.


From creating presets to various methods of synchronizing image settings to our favorite Develop Module functions and shortcuts, we cover it all.

Chapter 5 – 30 Images, 30 Effects: Developing from Start to Finish

In Chapter 5, we take your Lightroom foundation to new heights as we work through 30 different images from start to finish.

We start out Chapter 5 by showing you how to fix common image problems such as harsh mid-day lighting, underexposed images, over exposures and flares.

We then move into creating panoramic images, creating a high contrast image that pops and boosting dynamic range to create beautiful, yet natural HDR imagery.

From landscapes, we move into developing and performing retouch on various types of portraiture on male and female subjects. From studio headshots to wedding photos, we demonstrate different techniques for processing and Lightroom based portrait retouch.

After portrait processing and retouch, we move into creating different types of stylized effects including bright and airy vintage fades, film simulation, creating mood shots, grungy street portraits, tilt-shift effects and much more!

All and all, we work through 30 images to demonstrate virtually every Lightroom processing technique. After completing this chapter, you should be able to create virtually any look and custom effect your heart could possibly desire!

Chapter 6 – A Brief Look at Lightroom’s Other Modules

While the vast majority of your time will probably be spent in the Library and Develop Modules, in Chapter 6 we spend a few moments to go through the Map, Book, Slideshow, Print and Web Modules.
