Managing Workflow in Lightroom

Eddie Tapp M.Photog.MEI.Cr., CPP, API

Lightroom™ puts so many tools at your fingertips, but the magic is less in the tools than in the process! In this class, watch and learn as PPA Instructor Eddie Tapp demonstrates his editing and retouching process.

Eddie will show you his complete workflow from capture and downloading to editing and output. You’ll not only learn what tools to use but when and how to use them!

When you’re done with this class, you’ll have the right answers for questions like these:


  • Do you have a good folder setup?
  • Why do you attach your metadata file when you import?
  • What’s the 1:1 ratio?
  • What is parametric editing?
  • How do you set up a rating system?

Master the process and you’ll master Lightroom™!
