(The Lightroom video tutorial in this post is just under the introductory text below. The working files for this video can be found just above the video.)

For those of you that have been following the Lightroom Training Series, we are finally moving on to the good stuff, the Develop Module.

The Develop Module is really the bread and butter of Lightroom 3. It is where we will be spending the majority of our time in Lightroom and for lack of a less cliche phrase, “it is where the magic happens.”

This first chapter is going to be dedicated to learning each and every develop tool and setting within the Lightroom 3 Develop Module. Afterwards, we will begin teaching you specific recipes and tutorials on different techniques.

Enjoy!
