Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom CC - Retouching for Photographers Training Course


Course Description:  The Adobe Photoshop & Lightroom CC - Retouching for Photographers course is designed for experienced Photoshop users who want to use Photoshop and Lightroom together to reduce photo editing times and improve their workflow.
