Video – Develop From Start to Finish

I’m veering off the normal “tips” video this week and doing something a little different. This time around I’m taking a photo thru the Develop module from start to finish. Basically, I’ll show you what I would do for a properly exposed photo, for the most part. I’ll go through what settings I would use and what settings I typically ignore. In the coming weeks I’ll take a look at problem photos, as well as some of the things that we’d have to do in Photoshop vs. Lightroom.

Oh yeah, if you like this week’s video but want to dig deeper into some of the settings then check out my Lightroom Online Training course over at
