Lightroom Support

Most Monday evenings from around 7 pm we host a live Lightroom and Lightroom Classic Support group and community on Zoom.

Each semester we look at a theme or module. Each Monday evening, we look at a task within that theme or module for around an hour, then for the next 30, 45 or 60 minutes, it's a question-answer session, how do I do this or I've got a problem with that.

Why not come and join us? It's free for RPS Western members.
