Class Requirements

  • Student must have Lightroom (4 or 3) and Photoshop Elements 9, 10 or CS 4,5 or 6

  • A High-Speed internet connection in order to view the streaming videos.
  • If you will be using LR4, be sure it's compatible with your sytem and your version of Photoshop or Photoshop Elements. Check with the adobe for specifics and with any questions you may have. CS5 users, be sure to update to latest version of ACR here.



I've been using LR (self taught) for several months now but I am so thrilled I took this course. I knew there was so much I was NOT using and boy are you showing me the capabilities of this program. Fantastic! So glad I took this class!


Oh, I am really learning so much. I just re-viewed some of the videos to really lock the info in my brain! Some stuff I'd already figured out through much trial and error but so much is new to me! Learning through your videos is so much better than through my errors...and much less frustrating, too! 


WOW! I am so blown away, I have learnt so much from you! Far more than I have been able to learn from the many many manuals/books that I have bought. This is an amazing course on the fantastic uses of Lightroom, thanks Kim for all your hard work!


Disclaimer: I can not help you with software compatiblity issues. Be sure your version of photoshop and lightroom are compatible....and that the software will run on your operating system. Also be aware that LR and Photoshop are powerful programs and they love memory. Make sure your computer is up for the job. For any questions based on these issues, be sure to check with Adobe.
