TLDR: With expert level training, the Comprehensive Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Bundle shows exactly how Lightroom’s unusual, yet useful range of abilities make it just as formidable an app as its historic big brother software.
There’s a reason why Adobe Photoshop is still the undisputed king of the image editing universe. It’s held the belt for the last quarter century and shows virtually no sign of stopping anytime soon. So if that’s the case, who does Adobe even bother to include sister image managing software Adobe Lightroom in their uber-successful Creative Cloud?
Well, they include it because Adobe Lightroom is a lot more powerful than meets the eye, as the training in the Comprehensive Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Bundle ($39.99, over 90 percent off, from TNW Deals) makes abundantly clear.
While you probably know or can at least guess to all the image editing magic available to Photoshop users, THe Decoding Lightroom video is the centerpiece of this package by exploring that far less famous Lightroom platform.
While Lightroom’s image editing abilities aren’t quite as formidable as in Photoshop, Lightroom is certainly no slouch, as this video explains. Over this course, learners are exposed to training in not only the photo editing powers of Lightroom, but the area where Lightroom absolutely runs circles around Photoshop: importing, organizing, and managing all your various images and digital creations.
With this course, learners dive into all the ins and outs of those abilities, including creating an image archive that makes it easy to find what you need when you need. That’s in addition to all the built-in effects like color grading, split toning, adjustment brushes, graduated and radial filters, and more available under the Lightroom banner.
But despite all those abilities, there’s nothing like software set to handle the specific task you want done with a click. Rounding out this collection, users get five separate bundles of Lightroom presets, including almost 500 different presets to make specific image sets pop from landscapes to weddings and even making digital images look exactly as if it were captured on film instead. Users also get five Photoshop actions collections, featuring filters and other procedural sequences to optimize black and white photos, portraits, and detailed cityscape images with a single action.
The Comprehensive Adobe Lightroom & Photoshop Bundle features over $450 worth of intensive photo and image editing training and effects, all available now for just $39.99.
