Lightroom Classic

This course introduces the major modules of Adobe Lightroom Classic, which was designed to help photographers store, organize, edit, and share images. We teach a complete workflow – from importing images into your computer all the way to sharing your completed images online.

Class Topics

  • Import your images into the Catalog
  • View, rate and keyword your images
  • Apply global and local editing with the Develop module
  • Share your completed images with the Print and Slideshow modules
  • And so much more!


The Adobe Lightroom Classic software is not included in course fees and must be purchased separately from Please ensure that Lightroom can be installed and launched on your computer prior to class starting.

This course is designed for editing images captured in DSLR or mirrorless cameras. While smartphone images can be imported and processed in Lightroom Classic, we do not cover working with these images. We also do not cover the cloud-based version of this software, which is simply called “Lightroom.”

Previous enrollment in our Fundamentals of Good Photography class is strongly recommended. Basic computer skills are required.

Class Attendance

Classes are offered both in-person and virtually. Our clubroom is located in Broadview Heights, Ohio. For those who prefer to attend remotely, livestream information will also be provided. Additionally, each class is recorded and can be viewed on your own schedule.

Due to the amount of material covered, we do not expect students to follow along with our examples as we teach. Instead, we suggest that you watch and take notes, then practice the exercises as needed between classes. We will not be able to pause the class for students to catch up.
