Hi gang, and yes, it’s Monday already (altogether now…groan!)
Anyway, when I’m out on the road with my Seminar Tour (next stop is in Indianapolis this Thursday by the way), I run into so many photographers who tell me they signed up for Adobe’s Creative Cloud Photographer’s Bundle (Lightroom & Photoshop for $9.99 a month), but they’re not really using the Photoshop part yet.
They tell me, “I know I should be using it…” or “I know I could be doing so much more…” but they just haven’t taken the time to learn it or had the right opportunity.
That’s why I did this new KelbyOne online course called “7 Photoshop Techniques Every Lightroom User Needs to Know” — it’s expressly for Lightroom users and I focus on the 7 main things you would leave Lightroom for, and it’s a short course – you’re literally just two-hours away from adding Photoshop to your workflow and using it like a boss! Watch that trailer above and you’ll see what the class is about.
One of the main topics I cover is Layers — not just how to use them, but when and why you’d want to use them. In fact, I cover that type of stuff a lot, letting you know the reasons why you’d need to jump to Photoshop, and then exactly what to do, step-by-step, when you get there. I think it will help a lot of folks unlock the power of Photoshop, and I hope you’ll give it a try.
Also, if you’re already using Photoshop, but you know another Lightroom user who needs to learn the ropes in Photoshop, maybe you could pass it on to them for me?
How ’bout a handy Lightroom keyboard shortcut while you’re here?
You might already know this one, but I get asked it a lot, so I thought I’d throw it out there. If you want to see a quick before/after of your edits to an image, press the [ \ ] backslash key on your keyboard.
That’s it for today – hope you have a better than average Monday, and we’ll see ya back here on Wednesday. 🙂
P.S. If you searched for a photo walk in your local city last week, and you didn’t find one — look again today — a BUNCH of new cities added photos walks this weekend to my 9th Annual Worldwide Photo Walk. Here’s the link.
