New Lightroon Surevival Kit 6 by Thorsten von Overgaard


"I am only pages into the course, I am VERY excited about it! There are many years of digital experience in the first 10 pages - years that I can bypass! Having a clear understanding of color space and color profile is fantastic."

"Just want to say a big thank you for this providing this course. Really informative and easy to follow."

"I’m very impressed how you get to the bones of what’s needed and useful and not fill it up with useless fluff!"

"Thorsten's methodology is perhaps not what hardware-, software- and cloud-companies want us to do, but as a former IT engineer I can only acknowledge his views about preserving our digital heritage. The workflow explained is for me the best I have ever seen."


"I really enjoyed the insight as to how you get images to ‘sparkle’ as you say…being a designer and using photoshop on a daily basis, I know and appreciate how much experience you are sharing here. These kind of things can take years to work out…it’ll take me a fair while to master but I’m already trying my hand at a few photographs. I want to emulate the look that you get with your images…they are as perfect as I’ve ever seen."


Is this for you?

It's for anyone who have little or no experience with Lightroom - or those who have enough to know they don't know what's the up and down on a workflow.

The aim of the Lightroom Survival Kit is to give you the overview and necessary tools, as well as a way to handle editing so that you can produce the image quality you require in Lightroom, without having to know everything about the software.

The Lightroom Survival Kit gives you the necessary setup for a secure and efficient workflow when you empty your images onto the computer.

How do I arrange my photos?, should I use previews?, how about keywords?, is there some tool I missed?, which tools does others use?, how do I convert to black & white so it looks good?, what color space should I choose?, how do I use the rating system? ... and many other questions will be answered.

The Lightroom Survival Kit is not a "know-all-about-the-software" and all the features of Lightrooms. It's for photographers who wants photographic results using Lightroom - without having to spend hours by the computer.
