Adobe Lightroom Classic – Loxley Colour
Whether you are a beginner or pro, or somewhere in between, Adobe Lightroom Classic includes all the essential tools for amazing photography on the desktop. Adobe Lightroom Classic is a Raw image editor, but it also allows you to edit various file formats, including JPEG. Lightroom Classic is much more than an image editor. Lightroom Classic CC includes all the tools you need for most digital photography tasks in one intuitive solution. It’s your go-to app for organizing, enhancing and sharing your images. It will help you work faster and more consistently with one image, a set of images, or a large image library.
In this 12-hour course, you will learn how to get photos from your computer or memory card into Lightroom Classic, organize them into collections, and add ratings and keywords to enable quick and accurate searching. Then we will dive into the photo editing workspace, the Develop module, where I will show how to make both simple and complex adjustments. Finally, learn to export your final images from Lightroom and troubleshoot common issues, such as finding lost photos. I will also show how to sync your collections with the cloud so that you can access your work on any device.

Martin SproulOwner of f:Stop Training
I have been taking photographs at various levels since I was 14 years of age – that’s a long time. I started with a cheap and fully manual SLR camera which forced me into a steep learning curve to ensure I didn’t waste every roll of film. Yes, film! I used rolls of film at first then progressed onto shooting and developing my own slides.
I am a qualified instructor and have over 8 year’s experience as an industry trainer, which when coupled with my knowledge, experience and passion for photography, ensures that all our courses are meticulously designed and delivered with enthusiasm. It is always a joy to further people’s knowledge and inspire their photography.
Fantastic course. I was a total beginner, never opened Lightroom. Martin explained everything very clearly and with humour and was very happy to answer all questions. Martin gave lots of hints, tips and shortcuts and demonstrated everything with lots of instruction. Small group so everyone had a chance to ask questions. Refreshments on tap all day and a smashing lunch. I left with my brain buzzing (in a good way) and I’m very excited to try out what I have learnt. Very happy to recommend!!
Thank you for your comments on the course, Cath. I am pleased that you enjoyed it and found it useful. Adobe Lightroom has a lot of features and I encourage you to practice and feel free to email me if you have any questions.
I found the course well presented, very informative and it suited my ability very well. Lightroom’s capabilities, which are extensive, were clearly explained and overall I was extremely satisfied with the course.
Thank you for your thoughts on the course, Alistair. I am glad you enjoyed it and found it useful.
I learned so much from this course. The detail covered was excellent and Martin clearly ‘knows his stuff’ both from the technical knowledge of the application and, more importantly, from a user’s point of view.
The course was well organised and presented. The pace was perfect for absorbing the information, taking notes and providing the opportunity to ask questions throughout. Martin is clearly well prepared in the presentation of the topics and delivers it with flair.
I will certainly be looking out for any other courses Martin offers….and am looking forward to his workshop in Italy next May!
Thank you Suzanne. So glad you enjoyed it and please keep in touch.
