    What a great course of tips for LR! It’s been added to my list of favorites to come back and refresh me on the list of topics. These lessons are worth the cost of KelbyOne membership.

    As a wedding and portrait photographer, I use Lightroom 5 for 95-98% of my editing. These tips are great time savers as well as making the entire workflow move much faster. Thanks Scott for your wonderful teaching style and interesting take on learning. I find once I start a course, you really can’t get away from them.

    I am refering to your tip about “Slider Limitations”. I take a lot of photos underwater with an extreme amount of green tones in the pictures. I often drag the magenta slider all the way to the right. When I try to use your tip, f.eks paint with more magenta with the brush, nothing happens with the greens in the pictures. Any tips?:)
