No, they’re a special bonus for students enrolled in the online workshop

The email with the password & instructions to access the course will be sent to the email that you made the purchase with, so please check there. If you still don’t see it, please be sure to check your junk or spam folder to see if it was filtered there. If you still can’t locate it, please email Mindy at

It’s completely watch at your own pace, so some people binge watch a whole season in a weekend & some take a slower approach and chip away at each lesson when they have time.

Unfortunately, I don’t have enough time in my schedule to do this, but you can see some of our incredible student work featured on the preset page at

Our students tell us they do, but they were built for Lightroom versions 2018 & higher.

2018 and higher for CC. If you haven’t already upgraded, what are you waiting for?! You’ll want to be using the latest versions of CC for maximum capabilities & it’s only $9.99/month for the photographers bundle with Adobe.



All content will be available to view until December 31, 2022.
