Here are few commonly asked questions. As always if you have any questions that aren’t answered here, just press the Contact button below. Thanks!

What version of Lightroom?

This course was created with Lightroom Classic in 2022 and updated to include any changes as of 2023. While I show what the difference versions of Lightroom are (the cloud version and mobile), this course does not fully cover the “cloud” version of Lightroom.

Do I Need This if I Have the Ultimate Lightroom or Lightroom System earlier versions?

No. This is the same course, just redone and newly updated in the latest version. And because I promised back then that my course would be the only “basic / starter” Lightroom course you needed, you get a FREE upgrade to this course if you’re an owner. Just send us a message and we’ll get you upgraded to new videos + online streaming 🙂

Can I use this on another computer?

Yes, you can use this course on up to 4 computers.

What is the skill level needed?

This course is meant for a beginner to an early-intermediate skill level.

Can I watch on my iPad?

Yes, you can either stream the course if you have an internet connection – OR – the download videos are compatible with tablets. You’ll just need to download on your computer first, then transfer them over.

Do I have to follow a schedule for this course?

No. Once your purchase is complete, you’ll receive access to the entire course. After that, you’re free to watch what you want whenever you want.

Is this a subscription?

No, this is not a subscription. Once your purchase is complete, you’ll receive an email with download links for the course.

So… what’s different about the Lightroom System

I’ve been teaching Lightroom for over 15 years now. So what’s the big deal about the Lightroom System and what’s so different about it compared to my previous training? Well, let me lay out for you how most other Lightroom training bundles come to life. First, a 1-2 hour course is created on some specific area in Lightroom. I’ll use me as an example: I created a course years ago on catalogs because that’s what people asked for. Then, a few months later people asked about importing their photos, so I created another course. But I didn’t really think about my catalog course when I created it. Been there, done that, outta mind, outta sight. Plus, I wasn’t sure if these people would be watching that course. And then a while later, I created a course on the design module… you get the idea. Eventually those courses were put together into a bundle, and sold together as a one-stop place to learn Lightroom. Looking back, I don’t think they were. They weren’t created together, in a way where one course knew the other course would be in existence. And because of that, I think it was fragmented, lots of duplicate info, and lots of missing topics that would link everything together.
But nobody would be crazy enough to create 15 Lightroom courses, and release them all at once right? Well that’s exactly what I did with the Lightroom System. I spent a solid 6-weeks working on an outline that was cohesive and tied everything together. And then another 2 months creating the videos. The result. An easy-to-use system to learn Lightroom that you own. You download and keep the videos to watch whenever you want, however many times you want. It’s got an outline that lists all 15 “courses” within the system, as well as prerequisite videos I think you should watch as the topics get more complex. For a beginner, it gives you a clear path of how to tackle and start learning Lightroom. For someone that knows enough to be dangerous in Lightroom, it gives you a clear way to jump in to just the topics that you want to learn about without having to watch more basic videos that you already know. To tell you the truth, it’s a project that I had no idea how I’d tackle when I started. And it’s become one of the projects I’m proudest of in my entire career.

“Who is Matt Kloskowski?

Matt is known as one of the world’s top experts in Photoshop. And, he absolutely hates bio’s written in the third person 🙂 Seriously though, I love teaching and photography… in that order! By being a teacher first, I hold nothing back. No secrets. That’s because my only goal is to help you get better. I’ve been doing this stuff for almost 20 years and consider my biggest talent to be understanding how people learn, and helping them achieve what they want with their photography. In 2013 I was inducted to the Photoshop Hall of Fame, and also have the honor of being included as one of Sony’s Artisans of Imagery. Thanks! – Matt K
