When I first considered Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2, I wanted to try it out. You can downloaded it as a free 30 day trial from Adobe. From my research, this program was just what I was looking for. You can organize your photos and edit them very quickly. The problem is, learning all the features in this program using the manual could take months to learn. Then I found the lynda.com online training course by Chris Orwig, a photographer and instructor at the Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbra, California. In a mater of days after viewing his online video course I was proficient in Lightroom 2. After a week I had all my photos cataloged (about 25000 photos) and could edit about 100 photos in about an hour. Wow! Other programs would have taken me days to edit. Now I’m really excited about the new Lightroom 3. Chris is a great instructor and passionate about photography. He made this course easy and fun to learn about Lightroom 2 and Lightroom 3. Watch the videos below and see if Chris Orwig’s online video training on Lightroom 3 or other Lynda.com videos are right for you.
