Before we get into the technical side. You might be wondering why Lightroom?
You might say Photoshop is enough and in most cases, I could agree with you. Because Lightroom comes with some limitations. For example, you can’t combine photos and create something completely out of this world, for example, you can’t remove a background in lightroom,
But The main reason you need to learn Lightroom is simply that it’s the fastest software to edit multiple pictures at once professionally. Being a photographer. There are times we take up to 1000 photos a day. And it could be even more. It’s impossible to edit all of them at once using photoshop. It could take months of work, But with the lightroom is a completely different story.
Just Being Able to copy and paste one certain look and maintain the cohesive style all the way creating looks and saving them as presets. where you can create your own signature look and import different effects to your Photos.
So pretty much the main focus will be on tools you need to get the most out of Lightroom.
