Editing In Lightroom

The basics of editing your photos using Lightroom CC.

Click Start Club is no longer in business. There will be no additional support with the purchase of the courses. However, you still receive everything listed below.

This course guides you through the basics of using Adobe Lightroom (Creative Cloud) when it comes to editing shots for your blog, social media, or family portraits.

The samples in this course are food based, but you can use the tools that are taught to grow your knowledge in other areas. Make your business pop!

By enrolling in this course you unlock lifetime access to Click Start Club's Editing with Lightroom. This means whenever new content and updates are added, you'll have access.

Learn how to take a drab image to something beautiful you can be proud to share! I'll walk you through the steps from importing the photos from your camera to exporting to use on your blog and social media channels.

This course has been described as having a friend come over and show you how to edit your photos. It's not technical or hard to understand. I'll teach you in plain English everything you need to know about making your photos look their best.

The course is divided into small, short lessons so you don't need to invest a lot of your time. I know that you are busy! The majority of the lessons are 3 to 5 minutes long. Watch a few when you have a few minutes during the day. I wanted to make it easy and manageable for you!

"Stacie showed me a better workflow that will shave HOURS from my photo editing! Lots of great tips in this course! "

- Devon, Midwestern Moms

"Straightforward and easy to understand. They walk you through editing an actual photo that is used on a blog post and don't get technical. The step by step instructions are priceless and I'll be referencing them until I get my own system."

- Laura Cyra, Real Momma

"I've been blogging since 2011 and my photography skills have improved a lot since that time but I was still using free editing programs to edit my photos. I had heard great things about Lightroom but I wasn't sure I'd have the time to dedicate to a course to learn a new system. I knew I was outgrowing the free photo editing program so I was happy to see that Click Start Club was offering a Lightroom course for beginners. I found the course to be just the right amount of information for what I need to use it for (editing photos for my blog) and it was broken into manageable chunks so I wouldn't get too overwhelmed with too much information at once. The lessons were short, easy to follow and included enough information for me to both do the tasks on my own but also understand why each of these steps was important. Having the course broken into manageable pieces is also great when I have to refer back to it for a refresher on one specific area. I'd highly recommend this course both for beginner bloggers (it is SO much easier to start with great photos rather than spend months trying to fix them all later) and experienced bloggers that have outgrown the free photo editing programs and are looking to take their photos to the next level. Randa and Stacie are both great with communication so if you ever get stuck, you know one of them will get back to you quickly to help you out. "

- Cheryl, Moms and Munchkins

"Editing photos has always been my least part of being a food blogger. Now thanks to this course, I feel confident my photos are going to shine!"

Why I'm Teaching This Course

I started my photography journey several years ago after getting my first DSLR for Christmas from my parents. Back then, I had no idea how to use it! I didn't even bother to edit my images.

I realized that I needed to up my photography game and figure out how to use my camera and make my images better. I spent the last couple years learning everything I could about photography and most importantly, putting into practice everything I learned.

I'm 100% self-taught. I didn't go to college for photography and have a background in Accounting, believe it or not. However, I was determined to one day have images I could be proud of.

As my photography improved, so did my blog traffic and income. More importantly, I discovered something I was truly passionate about. I love to help others and wanted to share everything I learned over the years with all of you.

Lightroom Creative Cloud is my go-to editing program that I solely use to edit my photos. Once I taught myself how to use it and unlocked all its editing power, my images improved even more. I want to share all my tips and tricks with you so you can also improve your images, too.
