Hey everyone, @benjamin_warde here! Welcome back to #LightroomLessons . Guess what! You don’t even need me anymore. Did you know that you can actually access interactive tutorials directly inside the Lightroom mobile app? Read on, and swipe through, to find out how.⠀
In the upper left corner of the Lightroom app, tap the Home icon (if you don’t see it, tap the back arrow in the upper left corner until you see the Home icon).
The Home screen includes a “Recently Added” section at the top, which contains photos that you’ve recently added to Lightroom. Below that is a “Learn” section which contains interactive tutorials. A handful of tutorials are shown right here on the home screen, but if you want to see more you can tap on “See All."
On the “See All” screen, you can find tutorials organized by photographic topic, and also by “Beginner” and “Advanced”. Go ahead and tap on any tutorial that you’re interested in.
Tap on “Start Tutorial."
The photo for the tutorial will download, and then the tutorial will begin. Tutorials are divided into chapters. At the bottom of the screen, you’ll see what step you’re on, and also an “X” button which will allow you to cancel out of the tutorial at any time.
The tutorials are entirely self-explanatory – just do what it says at each step! These tutorials are great because unlike tutorials on the web (and unlike this tutorial that you’re reading right now) these tutorials are in the application itself - you’re not just reading about what to do, or watching a video about what to do - you’re actually doing it, at your own pace, step by step, right in Lightroom!
The tutorials contain detailed information about the tools. This way you’re not just following rote instructions, you’re learning how things work so that you can apply what you learn to your own photos.
When a step requires more than a tap, you’ll see an animation clearly showing what you need to do, just tap and drag in whatever way the blue ring indicates.
When you’ve completed a tutorial, you can rate it. We add new tutorials every day, so check back often! - 19 days ago
