Getting started with Adobe Lightroom CC

Lesson Plan Published 1/22/18 Last updated on 3/2/20

Adobe Lightroom CC is an all-in-one photo service that makes it easy to add, view, edit, and share photos from any device - at home, school, and beyond. When any photos are added or edited in Lightroom, all connected devices are automatically updated. In this activity, students will learn how to add images to the Lightroom library, the basics of how to edit, organize, and share, and how to use Lightroom CC images in Photoshop.

  • Photoshop

    Editing and compositing for photos, web and mobile app designs, 3D artwork, videos, and more.

  • Lightroom

    The cloud-based photo service for people who love photography.

​Question do the lessons include the use of "Profiles?'

Adobe Education

Hi Spencer - what do you mean by Profiles? I don't think the content covers that, but just wanted some clarification from you to confirm. ​
