Your Best Photos.
Made Even Better.

INTRODUCING THE LIGHTROOM FIX

Ever feel like your photos are missing something...that "extra oomph?"

Ask any pro...or anyone who's been at this for awhile as an enthusiast.
It's no secret what's missing.

QUALITY EDITING!

A little bit of the right editing will completely transform your pics.

Fromto GREAT.

Consider these real life examples (1 minute video below).

Of course, that's just a few examples of 1,000's we could show.  But let's get on with the main question:

Where do you start when it comes to editing like a pro?

You may have heard of Adobe Lightroom.  It's the most popular editing program the pros use, but that it's also easy enough for the total newbie.  You jump in and have a bit of luck.  But without a clear step-by-step process for making quality edits, you get frustrated when you can't get that look you're after.  Or why sometimes you get good results and other times, not so much.

Here's the truth.

Quality editing isn't only about learning the editing software.  Though that's part of it.

But just as a great cook knows what spices will enhance a food's natural flavor, great editors know how to amplify the "feeling" that's already present in the picture.  It comes down to developing your vision, style, and taste.

This brings us to the Lightroom Fix.  Sure, we're going to master Lightroom itself.

But along the way we're also going to explore how to make the right editing choices.  We're going to uncover a process that will make editing fast, profoundly effective, and loads of FUN!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

If you can't find your answer here, email us!

Click on a question below to expand the answer.

DOES THIS COURSE COVER "LIGHTROOM CLASSIC" OR LIGHTROOM CC?

Well, pretty much both.  95% of the course covers what is now "Lightroom Classic," which Adobe is calling its "desktop focused editing."  "Lightroom CC" effectively became Lightroom's name for its mobile apps, which we already cover in a module.

Adobe is not abandoning Lightroom Classic.  They're just realizing a lot of editing will be done on mobile in the future (and thus require the cloud).

Bottom line is this: when you understand Lightroom Classic, you understand Lightroom CC too.  We'll cover both!

DO I HAVE TO OWN LIGHTROOM? DOES LIGHTROOM COME WITH THIS?

No, Adobe Lightroom does NOT come with the Lightroom Fix.  SPS doesn't make Adobe Lightroom and thus we don't get to sell it.  ๐Ÿ™‚

So while you don't have top purchase Lightroom separately to join the Lightroom Fix, it'll help if you purchase Adobe Lightroom.  Otherwise y0u won't be able to put much of this course to use! ๐Ÿ˜‰

IS THE LIGHTROOM FIX ALL ONLINE? SELF-PACED?

Yes and yes!

IS THIS COURSE BASIC ENOUGH FOR ME? ADVANCED ENOUGH?

We want you to feel comfortable with this course even if you have zero editing experience!  Welcome, you'll do great!  That said, even if you've been using Lightroom for years, there will likely be a lot you've missed!

HOW LONG DO I GET ACCESS TO THE COURSE?

How does LIFETIME ACCESS sound?!  Sounds good to us!  

IS MY BILLING AND CREDIT CARD INFO SAFE?

Absolutely. Shultz Photo School is built on a fully encrypted platform complete with SSL certificates.

WHAT IF I HAVE QUESTIONS WHILE GOING THROUGH THE COURSE?

We have a members only forum just for questions, feedback, and inspiration.

DO YOU OFFER A GUARANTEE?

Of course.  If you don’t think the course delivers, we’ll give you a 100% refund in the first 30 days.

BONUS: THE PRESET FIX

Without a doubt, the biggest time saver for editing comes when you start using "presets."

Think of presets as saved "recipes."  Or better yet, "filters" if you're coming from Instagram.  But way better since you can finely control them (and tweak them after applying them).

As a bonus for joining the Lightroom Fix, we'll give you our very own preset pack called the "Preset Fix."  This preset collection was handmade by Kyle Shultz and includes almost 50 presets to give your images that something extra special.
