THE FAST TRACK TO CONFIDENT EDITING
You could be processing photos with confidence in hours,
producing beautiful images in just days
SELF PACED ONLINE WORKSHOP
What if you could easily import photos into Lightroom Classic, work through the shoot quickly and select your keepers, then confidently edit droolworthy images …and have time to capture more amazing moments?
YOU CAN DO IT!
SOONER THAN YOU THINK
DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE TO START
You open Lightroom Classic and it all looks the same. There are so many sliders and windows and choices …and where are your photos anyway?!
YOUR FILING SYSTEM IS A MESS
You’ve imported photos and now you can’t find them! You have no idea where Lightroom put them. Even worse, you spent ages editing photos and now all your hard work is lost and you don’t know how it happened.
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THE SLIDERS
You know that you’re supposed to use them, but you don’t know what they do so it feels like you’re just randomly adjusting settings, hoping for the best
EDITING TAKES FOREVER!
You spend so long deciding which photos to keep and which ones to process. Then it takes ages to edit just one photo, but you have 100’s that also need editing! So you don’t edit any in the end.
YOUR PHOTOS NEVER LOOK AS GOOD AS OTHERS
Your photos just don’t work out like that great Instagram account you’ve been following. So you bought their presets to make your photos beautiful, but they look nothing like theirs.
YOUR TIME IS LIMITED
You just don’t have the time to sit and work it all out. You make a little progress, but then the next time you go back to do it again you can’t remember what you did and you have to figure it out all over again.
DID YOU JUST NOD YOUR HEAD?
YOU’RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE!
IMAGINE HOW IT WOULD FEEL TO…
Confidently file, sort and find photos for editing
Your photos will be safe and easy to find, ready for processing, printing or posting online in a couple of clicks.
Quickly select keepers for editing
You’ll spend less time sorting and selecting photos. It becomes easy and a pleasure to do as soon as you’ve imported photos. So you can be back up and at it, capturing all the moments.
Process & edit efficiently
You’ll know where to start and finish with your editing. When you’re confident that you’re using the tools in the right order you won’t waste time going back and forth with constant tweaking.
Understand the purpose of each slider
Use the right slider, at the right time to achieve the look you want. You’ll know how the sliders work together and how they each affect different parts of an image.
HERES THE THING ABOUT EDITING…
Lightroom Classic is an incredible bit of kit for storing, filing and editing photos! The flip side is that there’s a lot to learn. If you want to spend less time fiddling about and more time creating those gorgeous images you dream of, you need to get started now.
You’ve got the tools you need – the camera, the photos, the computer and Lightroom Classic software.
All you need is the HOW.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR, JANE ALLAN
Jane started using Lightroom as a wedding and portrait photographer a few months after it was first released in 2007. She taught herself from a book, as that’s all there was back then… and made every mistake possible! So she knows how frustrating teaching yourself can be and how quickly photo organization can get out of control.
For nearly 13 years Lightroom has been the backbone of her digital workflow for safe filing, speedy processing and creative editing. She’s even used it as a very effective sales tool in her busy portrait studio. Lightroom just keeps getting better with every passing year. So Jane feel it’s a must for the modern photographer to start now and stay ahead of the curve as Lightroom becomes even more powerful – for both personal and business photography!
If forced to choose between chocolate and Lightroom…she’d probably choose Lightroom!
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JANE
“OMG wow ! Why didn’t I find you before? You are amazing and life saver! I love the way you explain!
Thank you so much!”
“Thanks, Jane, for your generosity of information! Remarkable content as always.”
Easy to understand
“Thanks for all the info and tips you provide…and the hard work behind them. All very simple, clear and easy to understand and apply.”

ONLINE COURSE FAQs
WHAT EXPERIENCE DO I NEED?
None. This course is ideally suited to absolute beginners. If you know a little, you’ll understand how intimidating Lightroom can be to work out on your own.
You’ll save a lot of time and headaches. I give you the filing system and digital workflow that I’ve developed over many years of making all the mistakes so you don’t have to.

Lightroom Classic, which is the desktop version of Lightroom. Plus your computer and photos (preferably RAW photos as JPEGs aren’t nearly as versatile for editing). You can access the course online any time with your phone, tablet or computer.

Lightroom Express consists of a series of short videos, divided into 6 modules, totalling 7 hours. Complete it in a few days, or take longer if your free time is limited. Refer back to the course whenever you want as you’ll have lifetime access.
