Scott Kelby's 2016 'Simplified Lightroom Image Management' (SLIM) System
with Scott Kelby
Have you ever wished you could start your Lightroom catalog over from scratch and do it right? If you have, or if you are just starting to use Lightroom for this first time, then this class is for you. Join Scott Kelby as he walks you through his simplified Lightroom image management system (SLIM) that keeps his drive organized, his workflow simple, and his piece of mind intact. This is a class you’re going to want to watch in its entirety before you take action, but it may be just the thing you need to rethink how to use Lightroom from the ground up and see things in a new light. There’s a Q&A session with the live studio audience at the end to expand your understanding even further. BUY COURSE
