Ready to take your digital photography to the next level? This set of 25 video tutorials contains over 6.5 hours of the most comprehensive training available on the Lightroom 5 & 6 (Lightroom “CC” Classic) Develop module. In this series we cover the Lightroom raw processing controls from top to bottom. Starting from the top, we guide any serious photographer—professional or passionate amateur—through a complete understanding of each and every control. Then we dive deeper, digging into important details no other videos touch, such as the intricate relationships between the local and global effects. Watch this online series anytime, day or night, and you will find thousands of tips and techniques that help you master the processing of your digital photos. The complete online series is only $29.95.

If you have previously purchased my Develop DVD from Amazon, you are still eligible for a discount, upgrading to the new ONLINE videos.)

As someone moving over from Aperture and with no knowledge of LR, I am amazed at the depth of knowledge these videos have helped me acquire. The Library Module was, of course, the place to start and fundamental to LR. I’m still woking on the Develop videos, but wanted to say that George’s explanation of the difference between H/S and B/W adjustments, using the gradient bar as example, is brilliant. Absolutely brilliant. I never would have known about the difference with contrast that the pairs exhibit.
This has saved me a lot of money I would have spent on lynda or such. Thanks, George.

George October 9, 2014 at 1:38 PM

Thanks, Don! Very good to hear you’re getting a lot out of the videos. Don’t hesitate to contact me if you have questions or problems.

In preparation for 2 flights of 18+ hours I downloaded the iPad version (with the chapter marks!). No more TL;DR as I was trapped in a plane with more than enough time. I thought I knew my way around the Develop module so I was completely awed at the amount of new information that George crams in to this extremely well produced tutorials. GJ has a gift for clear and un-confusing presentation. So much so I that I determined to purchase the Library tutorial upon my return. My theory is that even though I think I understand everything about the Library module already I bet I don’t and GJ will explain why. Great stuff, value priced.

George November 24, 2014 at 2:49 PM

Thanks, Peter! Very good to hear you’re getting your money’s worth. :-)

Can I play the DVD in my DVD/BluRay player connected to my TV? That would be great if I can!

Alan Chown February 4, 2015 at 8:14 AM

Really found these videos useful. Information presented in a very clear straightforward way. The best Lightroom videos I have seen so far. Just purchased the Image Correction tutorials.

Suzette February 7, 2015 at 10:00 AM

I am amatour photographer and new to any lightroom( plan to installed it tomorrow) ,which dvd you recommend me to start learning it?

George February 7, 2015 at 10:07 AM

Hi Suzette!

If you’re just getting started, I would recommend our Library DVD. And please notice that for the month of February, we are bundling the Catalog Management DVD in with the Library DVD all for the price of just the Library DVD:

Hope that helps!

George, I bought the Development module and it has an unprecedented level as it comes to clarity and comprehensiveness. After watching the free tutorials of Lightroom 5 you convinced me to buy the Development tutorials. When you want to master Lightroom 5, this is what you are looking for. This is abosoluut value for money. Many thanks George.

George February 8, 2015 at 2:20 PM

Thanks, Luc! Really appreciate the comment.

Mike Morse March 15, 2015 at 5:49 PM

I just finished the catalog managment series. I have the LR Library and Development series and review them when I am stumped. The Catalog Management series continues with George’s soothing voice turning mayhem into order. Keep up the good work. Thanks so much.

The video tutorials made by George, I have all of them, are the best I have ever bought about Lightroom. I really appreciate he explain “why”, not only “how” and all is done using clear and plain language easily understandable also for a non native english speaker.

Blair Govan May 30, 2016 at 9:05 PM

Do u offer bundle pricing if buying the entire content at once. Are they supported on Samsung tablets and cam they be downloaded to watch offline?

George May 30, 2016 at 9:10 PM

Hi Blair,

Yes, yes, and yes! I’ll follow up with pricing to your direct e-mail.


Jamshid September 5, 2016 at 5:22 PM

Hi George,
I am interested in Development and Image Correction modules. Do you have a discounted price if I purchase both modules at the same time?

George September 5, 2016 at 6:20 PM

Certainly! Just contact me directly at and I will send you the details.


Winston Shaw January 23, 2018 at 11:23 AM


Are your Lightroom instruction videos only available online or can I purchase them on DVDs? I’ve searched high and low on your website for an answer to this question and no luck…

George January 23, 2018 at 11:26 AM

Hi Winston,

I no longer sell DVD’s, but download links are provided. It’s super easy to download the full-res videos, and back them up or burn yourself a DVD.

Sound reasonable? :-)

Hope that helps,
