A Few Student Testimonials…


“This course is awesome, I learned tons of new tricks. Every single tool inside Lightroom is perfectly explained. I definitely recommend this course.”

~ Cristobal Ascencio


“I am new to Adobe and was interested in learning how to edit my pictures. I went through the LR classic portion (not interested in the cloud version at present) of the class and have learned a great deal. Since the course is so well laid out, it will be easy, as I practice editing, to refer back to any area I need to revisit.

Mr. Parker's shares, through his teaching style, both his in-depth knowledge of the program and his practical experience with it, which will save you years of trial and errors.”

~ Alina Larin

I liked the way the instructor broke the classes into small easy to understand learning experiences. It was very easy to follow along and work side by side with Chris.

I am just still learning and trying to figure it out. I'm not usually a video learner but trying something new. I am also trying to figure out the "note" thing and to see if there are any written materials that I can print.

Stafford2 August 2020

Through module 26 so far. Chris has a super teaching ability. Some of you may find some sections too emphasized and lengthy... but I have done photography many years... just never used lightroom. (imagine that!). I have found myself actually pausing the instructions to try options and test. It seems everything is explained in just the right amount of detail. Gotta go! Many more sections to cover!

Christ26 July 2020

Ce cours était exactement ce qu'il me fallait pour démystifier Lightroom et augmenter mon work flow. Genial !!

Shubham21 July 2020

Hi i am Shubham Mourya stared my first journey towards Light room. I this this course help me a lot about lightroom!

Tom31 May 2020

I knew a little bit of LR. This course was wonderful. You will understand everything of the software and a lot of tricks also. I loved it because im a photographer and its clearly made for us. Chris is a wonderful teacher, clear and easy to follow. Look forward to take another one with you!

Amy20 February 2020

Amazing! Did not realize how much I did not know and much faster ways of doing things. The instructor did an awesome job of explaining and keeping your interest. Will be taking more classes from him.

Cornelia20 February 2020

So far it is definitely what I have been looking for and what I need. I have struggled to understand the function of the Lightroom catalog. None of the documentation I have read have explained it like it is done in this course so far

Katie19 February 2020

i am starting from scratch, no previous knowledge or experience on laptops or photography, editing etc. i thought this was also for complete beginners. so using technical vocabulary does not help.

Veronika14 February 2020

Oustanding course in my opinion! I loved every second of it! Chris is an amazing teacher and one of my favorite, not just here on Udemy (from 105 courses I've done on Udemy so far) but at all. I wish every teacher would be able to pass their knowledge the way, Chris does. I had some challenges understanding Lightroom in the past but not anymore. Thank you, Chris!

Carolina4 February 2020

Very easy to understand and follow instructions. I want to highlight that what I have appreciated the most is that you took the time to teach Lr as they have updated it THANK YOU!!!!

Mariella15 January 2020

He is telling all about panels en toolbars, but doesn't show how to import your photos at the beginning. So you have to do that yourself in order to do the things he is presenting in his course.

Mike10 December 2019

To date - it is appear to be as expected. I'm on the correct path to begin making a decision on which version is best for me.

Paul22 November 2019

I have completed the course as yet and I have a much greater understanding on how to use lightroom. I had cancelled my subscription to Lightroom because I wasn't understanding the videos on youtube. I will definitely will be subscribing to lightroom again. Thank you!!!

Tero13 November 2019

Seems to be so that in this course you have match deeper explanations what is the inside of Lightroom and is really new for me!

Jelle4 November 2019

The content is good, a lot of neat little tips and tricks. The presenter clearly knows what he's talking bout, my only feedback is not to use the word "and" so much starting a sentence. He puts a lot of emphasis on the word "and". It quickly becomes repetitive. This was, content wise, exactly what I was looking for. Setting up Lightroom and how to make the environment optimal to start optimizing your photos.
