Master Photo Sharpening in Adobe Lightroom


Are you like most of the photographers who use Lightroom to process their images?

Typically, people fall into one of two categories:

  1. They accept the detail settings in the Detail panel, or
  2. They push a few of the sliders around, not really understanding how the software was designed to work

There are then a few exceptions. Those who understand how Lightroom works and who know how to deploy its tools. These are the people who can produce the best quality photography, and the quality will show.

Did you know the sharpening and noise reduction routines in Lightroom were designed around a professional workflow? If you don’t understand this workflow you won’t fully master the tools. In this course, I share this simple workflow together with the essential foundations of sharpening and noise reduction. Once you understand a few simple points you will be well prepared to learn about the different tools. You will understand how you should use them but most importantly when and to what levels.

The course is designed around a practical, example image which is provided for you to download. The intention is for you follow the videos, using the same image and then compare your results with my finished image (also provided). There is then a second full length example with which to practice. At the end of the course you will have an advanced level of knowledge, required to sharpen and apply noise reduction to photography.

The course is intended to for the intermediate level photographer who is comfortable importing and processing images in Lightroom.
