We’ve said it before, we’ll say it again: Lightroom is such a deep image editing and organizing program, most photographers only scrape the surface of what it can do. And that’s fine.

“Lightroom allows you to take your photo and create the image you visualized when shooting,” Danson says. “It is 50% of the creative process and an important step in getting great photos. In this Lightroom tutorial video I talk about how to process a photo in Lightroom with these 7 simple tips.”
