  • Are you ever disappointed with your photos? Do you get frustrated when you’re editing because you’ve been told to move certain sliders, but never been told WHY? Do you wish you could transform your photos without having to spend hours in front of the computer? In our books, Adobe Lightroom - The Missing FAQ and Adobe Lightroom - Edit Like a Pro you’ll learn:
    • how to to analyze a photo like a pro, saving you hours of frustration.
    • WHY you might want to move specific sliders, instead of just following recipes.
    • what the sliders are doing behind the scenes.
    • how to use sliders together, instead of in isolation, so you can get the optimal result
    Lightroom Classic us based on the folder-based version of Lightroom and Edit Like a Pro is based on the cloud-native Lightroom desktop and mobile apps, but the principles also apply to Lightroom 6. The sliders are arranged into slightly different panels, but there's an included PDF that shows you where to find them in 6.

I typically find that iPhone images are too microcontrasty and require clarity and texture adjustments. What are your thoughts? Do you use any standard adjustments for iPhone images?

My experience "standard adjustments" is 'No'. They look just fine, but I will do some development work if I want something special.
If you find you are always making the same adjustments- create a Preset that you can apply when required.

There are lots of different iPhones, so what applies to “iPhone images” from one iPhone version, may not apply to the images of another iPhone version.
