Hi all,

I've been reading the main site on and off, and use the free ebooks, and am registering on the forum for the first time.

I first started using Lightroom with LR4, but have only fairly recently made a serious effort at learning to edit my photos properly (It's been Import->Auto Tone->Fix a slider or two->Export for most of those years!). Now I'm using LR6 to process images from my OM-D camera.

Despite having used LR for some time, I consider myself either a beginner or just a little beyond that. Am looking forward to learning more!

Welcome on board. For me, this has been my number one stop for friendly expert advice since I started using Lightroom. There's nothing that gets past the experts here.
Its a bit of a shame you are on Lightroom 6 because the new Classic Auto is streets ahead of the old one - though it doesn't do anything that you can't do yourself, of course.
