Digital photography lends itself well to photo editing. That’s one of the reasons why knowing how to take a great photograph and then being able to manipulate it with a photo editing software is such a strong one-two punch. The Essential 2020 Adobe Photography Training Bundle helps you kickstart a career in photography with 8+ hours of engaging video instruction on Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
After a brief introduction to digital photography, you then dive into working with Photoshop. The course gets you up and running quickly with the software, teaching you first how to navigate its user interface and move around images with its navigation tools. Once familiar with the software, you then begin to practice and learn imaging concepts and photo editing techniques, ultimately completing a mini-project where you prepare images for print and online presentations. Much in the same way, you’ll walk through Lightroom and learn how to manage, fix, stylize, and edit numerous images at the same time.

No matter which video editing software you select, you’ll be able to apply what you learn to the rest of the bundle to make professional-quality videos.
And with the rest of the bundle, you dive into other essential areas of video production. That means you will learn how to make special effects with After Effects, grasp the various elements of sound design with Audition, and learn how to promote your video with effective social media advertising in Spark.
In short, this bundle helps you master the software Hollywood professionals use when creating motion pictures, giving you a strong technical and conceptual basis for your video projects. Grab the bundle on sale today for $39.99, reduced from its standard price tag of $495.
