Hi Ed! I’m Jose, 25 years old spanish guy living in the amazing city of Berlin. I discovered your youtube channel 2 or 3 weeks ago and I just want to say THANKS for what you are doing. I started editing pictures in Lightroom some months ago, so I already knew how to use every tool (more or less haha) but you have been really the spark that lighted the fire! Your lessons and tutorials have increased my knowledge in editing, but also, and even more important, the motivation and inspiration in me. And this is in my opinion really priceless. So I feel I’m in debt with you.
A year ago I decided to start studying Digital Design, and although I am very proud of this, I have also many many doubts (it’s a four years long degree, and it’s a big economic and time investment). Why am I telling this to you? Because I want you to know, that thank you I’m feeling now more confident about the decision I made, and that is really, really, really important to me. So again, THANKS for your effort, THANKS for your time and THANKS for explaining everything in the way you do.Jose Alburquerque
Wow, great tutorial. Have subscribed to udemy and lynda.com—they just muddled my brain and confused me even more. Here you are Ed Gregory on youtube for free and I learned a lot more than the lessons I paid for. Cannot wait to see your other videos. Thanks a lot!Rav 48653
Your videos are easier to follow than the adobe tutorials and are far better than any others I have seen.
Thank you for your wonderful free tutorials on Lightroom 6. You have helped me learn the product at a faster pace and gain more confidence in my abilities and knowledge of photo editing.David Ripani
Ed, I think your tutes are the perfect length and incredibly informative. Your light room flow tutorial is the best on YouTube hands down and has changed our photography business. I would consider your tutes better than the ones with a paid for subscription so thank you!Marc Olivier
Thank you so much for these tutorials, they are so clear and easy to follow. As I complete beginner to Lightroom, they have helped me get to grips with the program so much faster than I would have done on my own!The Awkward Brit
I’ve watched a number of tutorials for Lightroom CC and there are more than a few out there that are fairly high quality, though I really like the way Ed Gregory teaches. He moves along at a good clip with a useful narrative that doesn’t lose the viewer in a quagmire of minutiae. The real-time demos are easy to follow, informative, and surprisingly easy to follow. I found myself pausing frequently to try out his techniques and was pleased (thrilled? shocked?) at how reliably it worked with my own images. Bravo, EdBart Abplanalp
Thank you for being alive Ed haha. I like how the videos are just short yet full of infosJp Angeles
Ed you have no idea how much you are boosting my career right now 🙂 – thanks these Tutorials are incredible!!!Jack Hannaway
omg. you are amazing. not only are you helping me understand lightroom and other stuff, but you are so funny and full of spirit. thanks for all the inspiration!!!! :]JorgiPie Critelli
You should be working for them (Adobe). One of the most articulated presentations I’ve seen on Photo editing software. 🙂Julian Lynch
Ed- I wanted to comment on your LightroomTraining Module as a whole. I have just completed this series after starting it a couple months ago. I am a forty-something guy who startedshooting on film a little over twenty years ago. I’ve lived through the transition into digital photography, and while I was resistant this this for a long time, I eventually decided the benefits of shooting digital outweighed whatever authenticity I was trying to maintain.
Similarly, I was even later to digital editing, as for a time I clung to the idea that I could maintain a sense of this authenticity by only using digital images as they were created by my camera. The idea of Lightroom (specifically it’s reference to the darkroom), made me rethink this – and I started to think about digital processing being more like chemical processing in the darkroom. So I was fully converted – but with very little understanding of what digital processing was.
I experimented around with a few things, with varying degrees of success, but eventually I found your training course. I have watched a video here and there as I could over the course of the last couple months, each time with Lightroom open in the background and flipping back and forth between you and the program; pausing you for a bit while trying what you were teaching and finding my way through it and then going back.
As an old school photographer, there are still things that rub me the wrong way in digital imagery. When you “create” sun flares with the brush or “paint in” haze to create fog that wasn’t really there, I can’t get there yet. Maybe I never will. But it’s not mine to judge or determine – it’s to each of us to create the photos that we feel are reflective of us as photographers and artists. Just because something isn’t right for me doesn’t mean it isn’t right for someone else. Maybe my evolution will bring me to that place at some point; I’ve certainly come a long way from exclusively film.
Here’s the most important thing – I can’t thank you enough for this experience. Your videos have taught me more about Lightroom and digital image processing in general than I can tell you. What you are doing is really valuable: I am a good and experienced photographer who now can do digital editing when I very much could not before. I am from the old school (a good and valuable school, but with lots of limitations) – and you have successfully brought me into the new. I am amazed at what I can do with my images now, and I don’t think I would have gotten here without your series. Thank you so much Ed, and keep up the great work. I’ll be watching.Geoff Gadow
I think you have transformed me to a kid!! Just like a kid, I wait for your Lr tutorial/s like I used to wait for a ice cream in a hot sunny day!! Much thanks and we appreciate what you do for us. Greetings from Vancouver Island, CanadaObayed Haque

Thoroughly enjoyed your tutorial on Lightroom. The pace of your delivery is just right and your enthusiasm infectious.Tony Fordy
I have to say, I’ve used Lightroom/Photoshop for years and this one short tutorial taught me loads of things- from technique to tools (including a few different shortcuts and EVEN methods that I didn’t realize you could do with the tools!). It really pushed me beyond my “go to” practises that can tend to become ruts. Very well done!peacechateau
Very unique and brilliant series! been looking for this type of thing for ages! Keep up the great work, you’re really helping us all out!Thomas Needham
You have a very unique style about your presentations that makes others envious. Love the theme tune dances. I am a visual learner and your style really helps me understand not just the tools within the software but the concepts and theories behind the tools. Please don’t change a thing and keep ’em coming.Dan Beigel
this is the best informative. simple, why/what/when/ video i ever see about this topic, amazing info thanks for make it so simple to understand the concept !!!alestex39
You are genuinely the best tutorialist I have found so far for Lightroom!!! You always make it funny, explain it so clearly in detail and ensure that it is easy to understand. Most importantly, you actually show us what the differences are!! Thanks so much and Hello! from Hilton, South Africa. Keep the videos going!!!Daniel Gibson
Wow! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you sir! You just solved an old question of mine on how to create that ‘old style / film look’. So this is how it’s done, uh? Curves! Simple and fantastic. Many thanks! Cheers!Fabinho Pirado
