30 Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Tips and Tutorials

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is an awesome tool for photographers, professionals and amateurs alike. One of the biggest benefits to using Lightroom is its ability to help you to organize and manage your photos effectively. If you photograph frequently you’ll find that your hard drive quickly includes thousands of photos. The more photos you have, the more important it is to keep them well organized. Lightroom’s library module allows you to organize your photos so you can find them quickly when you are looking for something specific.

In addition to its organizational capabilities, Lightroom offers plenty of potential for editing photos in the develop module. Whether you work with RAW files or JPGs, Lightroom allows you to do just about everything you need in the editing process. Lightroom also integrates nicely with Photoshop, so if you want to use the two programs for editing your photos it can be done efficiently.

If you already have a Creative Cloud membership with Adobe, which many designers do, you have access to Lightroom.

In this post we’ll showcase 30 tutorials and articles from a variety of different sources that will help you to learn more about Lightroom.

  • David, May 23, 2011

    I’ve never used Lightroom. I’m going to have to check it out sometime. Thanks for the post.

  • Adobe has issued a warning about a potential JPEG bug in Lightroom 3.4 and Camera Raw 6.4. It’s actually a very rare bug and I haven’t seen or heard any reports of it.

  • Graham, May 23, 2011

    This is brilliant! Lightroom seems quite complex, but it can bring regular photos to the next level. I went to the link you posted above and I was amazed on its features. I’m a bit confused though, is this a new version of photoshop? like Photoshop CS3 or CS5?

    Anyway, thank you for introducing to me this powerful software.

  • GANDALF, May 27, 2011

    I don’t understand why one needs Lightroom. If it is helpful, why isn’t it included within Photoshop?
