Intermediate/Advanced Level Lightroom Image Editing Tutorial

Hi, gang — happy Friday! Today we’re doing a start to finish, before/after type of tutorial start with the RAW image out of the camera, and taking it through to the final image.

You can download my RAW image file and follow along…

Here’s the link where you can grab the image I used in the tutorial if you want to follow along in the tutorial with me. We cover a lot of ground in this one.

Last chance to save $100

We’ll get to all that in one sec — just a reminder though that Monday is the deadline to save $100 with the Early Bird special for the Photoshop World Conference coming up May 31 – June 2, 2019, in Orlando. Get your tickets (and book your hotel) now. Tons of live Lightroom training all three-days of the conference. Details and tickets at

We start in Lightroom and then bounce over to Photoshop to do a few things Lightroom can’t do, and then we jump back to Lightroom for the final finishing move. None of this is hard, but I’m teaching at the pace for intermediate to advanced-level users.

Hope you found that helpful. 🙂

Hope I’ll see you in Orlando (or in Indianapolis on May 7th, or Minneapolis on May 9th for my new full-day seminar, “The Ultimate Photography Crash Couse”). Tickets and details at

Have a great weekend everybody.

    I’m catching up on posts…repeating myself but love these start-to-finish posts…including inadvertent architectural work

    Terrific tutorial, thank you. Totally love these advanced/intermediate tutorials, the pace is just right. And really appreciate having the file download — in previous tutorials, I’d grab a screen capture so I could work along with you on the image; this way is much better, thank you!

    Scott, I’ve said it before, but I believe these “how I do it” tutorials are extremely useful and some of your best work. They put so many tools and tips into a short amount of time.

    Greatly looking forward to Paris. Any chance we might be able to take some “unique” shots at Notre Dame?

    Great quick tutorial and you have inspired me to get my Photoshop skills back (lost in the sons of time) probably with a membership (also list over time) so thank you!
