  1. I have never used Lightroom at all. Now I have LR3. Can you video help me learn this software. I feel so frustrated trying to learn it. I don’t have a starting page. I am just jumping around. HELP.


    • Hi Monica:

      I was in your same situation a couple of months ago. I bought Lightroom 3 several earlier and it was of no use to me until I purchased Laura’s Lightroom 3 Fundamental and Beyond. This DVD was a tremendous help in getting me started and a great reference tool for reviewing step by step most of the features. Now I love Lightroom 3 and still have lots to learn but am enjoying the experience. I think the DVD would be a big help to you……….Howard

      • Thank you for sharing your experience, Howard! I am happy to hear that it has been so helpful to you.

  2. Definitely, Monica! I understand your frustration — there are many things about Lightroom that are not intuitive or obvious to beginners, and things can get frustrating and out of hand quickly. I believe you will find that my DVD/download is well worth the investment, and that once you get past the learning curve, you will really like the program and enjoy using it to manage and enhance your photos. You can pause or stop the videos at any point to practice, and you can watch them multiple times. I have hundreds of satisfied customers — above are testimonials from some.


  3. PLEASE make a Photoshop CS5 DVD/Download!!

  4. When do you think CS6 will available? I am glad you are workiing on a tutorial for CS6.

  5. Hi Laura,l’ve just spent the most informative week workig through your fantastic Fundamentals and Beyond DVD, Only wish l had been able to aquire it years ago ,it would have solved a huge number of problems l’ve been having with Lightroom in the past,especially the filing of images.Thanks to you. l am now looking forward to using LR. with far more confidance in the future. Have a happy Christmas and a wonderful holiday. Cheers from Down Under !

  6. Will you update the DVD’s once Lightroom 4 is formally released, following the beta testing??

    • Hi John, yes, I will release a Lightroom 4 version of Lightroom Fundamentals and Beyond. Purchasers of the Lightroom 3 version will receive an upgrade discount. I also plan to release a series on Lightroom’s output modules.

  7. I can’t recommend this training enough!!! This training was the RIGHT way to learn which is teaching concept, theory and really understanding what Lightroom is doing. I have read several LR books, taken other online training, used it for years and I STILL learned a ton from the DVD. I get so tired of other competitive training that teaches “buttonology” and menu memorizing which is not the right way to truly understand a product. From the first lessons, it is obvious that Laura is a professional instructor (which is rare in this type of techincal training). The training is clear and well organized with just enough detail. I found myself taking notes and replaying lessons on issues that I was having trouble understanding. A very good investment!

  8. I have Adobe Lightroom 3, I would like to buy your Fundamental & Beyond DVD, which version I should buy one for Lightroom 3 or for Lightroom 4

    • Hi Raman, for complete consistency, I would go with the Lightroom 3 one. You might otherwise get confused when I start talking about a feature in Lightroom 4 that you can’t find. The Basic panel controls are also different, and this is a critical panel.

      Thank you for your interest!

  9. Hi Laura,

    Just bought Lightroom 4 and I am a complete newbie. Is there any way I can preview one of your chapters on the DVD of Lightroom 4 fundamentals? Just want to make sure that I can understand the way you explain things and I like it before I can spend the $50 -$60 on the DVD.


  10. I’m excited about your upcoming book focusing on LR4 output modules. It would be great to have a HOW TO tutorial on making greeting cards, including front photo & back text. I’d like to take the digital files of such a work product to my local print shop for them to handle the tricky printing production step (and I assume I can get their printer specs as necessary). Also, exporting photo files for slideshow display on PC platforms is my main electronic presentation need, and it’d be great to know how to add text & content etc w/o having to prepare a Powerpoint file.

  11. I have used LR3 and now have LR4 and am enjoying the challenge. Your DVD is the best I have come across (I have a few). The manner in which you present the material is clear and concise. Truly the work of a skilled presenter. I am looking forward to your series of videos on the output modules.

    • Hi Marty, somehow I missed this note of yours last month. Thank you very much for leaving a note — I am glad to hear that you have enjoyed the Fundamentals DVD and I hope you also enjoy the output one!

  12. I am just starting out as a photographer. I have done 3-4 photo shoots of families and now I have all these pictures on my computer and have no idea how to even begin editing. I need a super quick tutorial on what to do! I have watched a lot of the videos you have on you tube but I feel like I need more info. What should I do in order to get these customers their photos quickly and well done?

  13. Your newsletter was forwarded to my by a photographer friend. Unfortunately I only received in on the 20th Feb. Too late for the discount.
    Please include my address on your e-mail list in future. You sound like a great tutor and I can do with all the help I can get.

  14. Hi Laura,

    I am a newbie to LR and not particularly computer-savvy, so bear with me, please! I purchased LR 4 a couple of months ago but didn’t have a chance to do anything with it. Of course, as soon as I purchased LR 4, they came out with LR 5! So, I just upgraded to LR 5 as I really wanted some of the new features, particularly the Upright feature as I take a lot of architectural shots when I travel to Mexico, etc.

    I am going to purchase your LR 5 Fundamentals course as I want to start out in the best way possible. I don’t want to make any mistakes setting things up. I have been impressed with the sample videos I have seen so far and I think I will be able to move forward more quickly with this form of instruction after some false starts, re-reading the first couple of pages of a book on LR 4 several times and not moving forward.

    My question is this: Should I get rid of LR 4 off my computer, leaving only LR5? When I pull up Lightroom on my computer it displays LR 4 even though it has been upgraded to LR 5. If I need to get rid of LR 4 how do I do this safely and still leave LR 5? I just want to start off cleanly with only LR5 installed. Thanks in advance for your help!


    • Hi Laurie, if you already had photos in LR 4 and LR 5 didn’t automatically find your LR 4 catalog and ask you if you want to upgrade it, you will want to first go into LR 4, into Edit (PC) / Lightroom (Mac) > Catalog Settings, General tab, and make a note of where your LR 4 catalog is, and what it is called (something.lrcat). Once you understand this (if needed), then you can go ahead and uninstall Lightroom 4 — Lightroom 5 doesn’t need it. (Note that there is a video in my Lightroom 5 Fundamentals & Beyond series on upgrading from 4 to 5, in case Lightroom 5 indeed didn’t find your LR 4 catalog.)

      You’ll find that my LR 5 FAB course starts out with explaining how LR works with a catalog, then discusses how to organize and back up your photo library, so that you get off on the right foot with Lightroom. Users who jump right in without this understanding often (understandably!) end up with a mess.

      I hope you come to enjoy Lightroom as much as I do!

  15. The best so far, very detailed explaination on how to accomplish task at hand in LR-3. Any chance that you are holding the class in Southern California.

    Thankyou again for the best totorial.

    • Hi Ata, I don’t have any plans to be down there, but if you are on my email list, you will hear about it if I do at some point!

  16. Hi Laura. I bought “Light room 5 producing Great Output” and viewed about 1/4 of the lessons and decided it was so great that I have just now ordered The “Fundamentals and Beyond Light Room 5″ lessons. Keep up the great work so us non pros can master our dig photo darkrooms. Love my hobby and keep at it to keep me young.

    • Sorry for the delay in responding, Charles, but — thank you for your note! I am happy to hear that you enjoyed Producing Great Output, and I hope you are enjoying the Fundamentals & Beyond as well!

  17. I would love to be able to afford ALL of your CD’s just to be able to understand building my Library. I installed LR5.3 Beta and without doing anything at all, ALL my photos transferred with no system whatsoever. I have no idea how to even start over. For now, this version of LR is
    useless and I’m so very flustrated. Does anyone have a suggestion? I hate bothering Laura for what is probably a very simple step.
