Testimonials

It’s one of the best online courses I’ve seen on this subject area. The picture quality is superb. I love the software interface. Downloads were easy. Audio quality super. The pace of training really nice. All in all superb! John Roche

Rushed my way through all the videos on LR, now it’s time to go over them again…but in a more relaxed way. I really enjoyed them. I thought I had a decent knowledge of LR but you have given me a new insight. Well worth the money. Jim Kirby

I have just finished Peter’s online workshop. It was brilliant and I learned loads & loads. I have even got my head around the ‘range mask’ thing. Now I understand it. If you use Lightroom he shows you what all the buttons etc do. I even might try the manual blending in Photoshop !! It was the best money for photographic training I have spent in years. Now I hope I put into practice what I’ve learned. The great thing is I can go back to it anytime I need too. Thanks again Peter. Damian Doyle

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Should I get the Photoshop or Lightroom online course?

    While the interface is different between Camera RAW or Lightroom they have essentially the same engine when it comes to the actual processing of the images. When you purchase the course you get both versions for just one price. If you are a total beginner we suggest learning the Lightroom. While Lightroom and Camera RAW have the same engine for editing Lightroom has additional functionality around photo organisation for example that might be of use when starting out.

    Yes, 100%. The course is yours for life and you can pause, rewatch, start again as many times as you like.

  • Can I watch the course offline?

    Yes. all videos can be downloaded for offline viewing. However, we have created a great interface that remembers your progress, contains files for download, and is really easy to use. As long as you are online there is no need to download the videos

  • Are files provided to work along with?

    Yes. We provide work along files for all chapters through section 2 and 3. In Section 3 when we are looking at the start to finish edits they are provided in RAW format.
