- Hello, I'm Tim Grey and I'll be your trainer for this video training title aimed at helping you make your photos look their best with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. For about the last 15 years, I've been helping photographers make the most of their digital workflow by writing books and magazine articles, leading photography workshops, and speaking at various events around the world. More recently, I've been producing video training titles with the help of video2brain, aimed at helping photographers improve their photography and their digital workflow. In this video workshop, I'm going to help you understand all of the various options for optimizing the appearance of your photos in Lightroom.

I'm not just going to show you what all the sliders and buttons do, but rather, will help you understand what's actually happening to your photos. I'll show you which controls I use the most and which I don't use that often. I'll share with you the techniques I use for my own photographic images to help you figure out an approach that works best for your images. The many techniques I'll demonstrate cover the gamut of adjustments you'll want to apply to your images, including basic adjustments, more advanced adjustments for fine control, targeted adjustments that affect only a specific area of an image, clean up techniques, and even some creative adjustments.

My aim is to help you not only understand how the various image optimization controls in Lightroom work, but also how to best utilize those controls to make your photographic images look their best. So join me as we explore all Lightroom has to offer to help your digital photos really shine.
