Hi all!  

I am making the move from Aperture/iPhoto to Lightroom.  I'd like to take an online class to help me get familiar with the program and do basic organization/editing etc…   Any recommendations?  I'm officially dubbing this week Lightroom week!

I highly recommend Lynda.com (not free) for structured training on Lightroom. There's also Adobe's website (free, though it could use better structure in my opinion): https://helpx.adobe.com/lightroom.html

Do you have a suggestion or feedback about the Paperclipping Forums? Please let me know!

There are some free articles here:



CreativeLive has a course. It says it's for scrapbookers, but in my experience, unless the teacher is a scrapbooker, they don't really understand scrapbookers. Still the topics covered are probably what you need to know.



Here's a prior thread on it...



And, from Adobe...

I also just found a class that starts next week on Big Picture Classes - its Lightroom for Memory Keepers  



I think I'll check that out. I know the basics of Lightroom... only from things I've figured out myself really... but I like that this one is made with Memory Keepers in mind - I'm hoping it will provide some good tips for a good workflow for that.
