What you'll need
To work with your photos in Lightroom, you need to let Lightroom know where they are on your computer. You do this by importing your photos. After you import you'll see your photos stored in the Library module.
Make basic adjustments to your entire photo to fix color and tone. After you make a change, you can always go back and rework your photo or get back to your original.
Easily correct perspective or lens distortion. Then perfect the framing of your photo by cropping and straightening the image.
After you have made changes to the entire photo, work on part of a photo to perfect it. You can brush over areas that need to be lightened, darkened, need more sharpening, or several other options.
Now that you have learned to import and edit photos on your Mac or Windows computer, use Lightroom on your mobile device for maximum flexibility. Any edits you make on your computer or on your iPad, iPhone, or Android phone can sync between all your devices.
