Discover How To Give Your Photos That Extra Pop Without Spending Hours At The Computer, Using Dead Simple Editing Techniques That Make Lightroom A Tool You Actually Want To Use
Hidden Inside The Byzantine Layout of Lightroom Is A Powerful Editing And Organizational Tool That’s Actually Incredibly Easy To Use... (See What You’ll Learn In The Video Below)
Do you want to stop struggling with Lightroom and turn it into a tool that helps you manage and edit your photos like a seasoned pro? Then this may be the most important thing you read all day...
Lightroom is a great tool for photographers, but just like a camera, Lightroom appears very complicated even though at its core it’s a simple and powerful tool.
I remember when I first started using Lightroom. After installing the program I opened it up, and all I had was this blank space. I just stared at it.
I had no idea what to do. I knew I needed to get my photos into Lightroom, but I didn’t even know what that meant or how to do it.
I eventually figured out how to add my photos, but then I discovered my next problem.
My photos were a mess. A MESS!
Imagine tens of thousands of photos scattered all over your computer. (Or maybe you don’t have to imagine this?)
Now imagine all of those photos are just there in front of you, no rhyme or reason to them. Just a massive pile of photos.
I had to walk away.
The thing about “editing” is it’s more than just editing your photos.
It’s about managing them, keeping them organized, figuring out which photos to edit, editing those photos, and then taking those edited photos and doing whatever it is you want to do with them.
What I realized when I walked away was that I had two problems. The first was my disaster of “photo organization”, and the second was that I didn’t know anything about how Lightroom worked.
So here I was, completely overwhelmed by this mess and utterly unable to use this software to do what I really wanted to do which was make my photos look awesome.
So I went looking for help, and it was nowhere to be found.
I mean, it’s not like there wasn’t anything out there, but none of it really helped me.
There was all sorts of stuff showing you how to use Lightroom, but that was no good to me when I couldn’t even find the photos I wanted to edit.
There was also plenty of stuff on how to organize photos using Lightroom but everything focused on using THEIR organizational system, not how to create your own.
And on top of that, nobody gave any guidance on how the heck to deal with the tens of thousands of photos that I had littered all over my computer.
So I had to figure it all out the hard way.
Piece by piece, a little bit here and a little bit there, and as I watched videos and read articles and books and tried all these different things I learned what works in Lightroom and what doesn’t work.
It took a lot of trial and error, but now using Lightroom and editing my photos is a breeze. So much so that I actually look forward to doing it, and now, I can go from completed photoshoot to fully edited photos in Lightroom in less than 30 minutes.
Let me just repeat that: I actually enjoy editing my photos. And I want you to enjoy it too!
So you’re probably wondering, what’s the secret?
Your success, is predicated on two things:
A good system for managing and organizing your photos
Knowing how to use Lightroom efficiently and effectively to create amazing looking photos
It’s that simple, and getting to that point is a bit of a journey, but your journey does not have to be as long and frustrating as mine was.

What Others Are Saying:
"This course is fantastic and exactly what I needed. Seriously great, and a much better way to learn it then the other tutorials.
It's so organized, it flows on a clear path and is easy to follow along, and all the extra tips and suggestions are excellent! " - Beth
"...through Spyros’ help, I have progressed nicely as a photographer. An area I still was struggling was post processing. I almost blindly pulled or pushed some bars in Lightroom and called it a shot.
All that changed when I checked out Spyros’ Lightroom course. Spyros, as with his general photography videos, has a way of taking the intimidation out of all the menu’s and selection bars.
After watching just a few of the videos I feel much more confident when editing in Lightroom. I don’t consider myself a professional by any stretch but I do have a confidence and a growing ability due to the instruction I found in these videos..." - Tim Kotanko
