Learn how to import into Lightroom via various input sources (hard drives / removal drives / USB Card Readers) and when done with image corrections / editing how to export and save on various output sources ((hard drives / removal drives).

Personal Experience with Adobe Lightroom
I've been working with Adobe Lightroom since the release of Lightroom 5 and currently have Lightroom Classic CC 8.2 deployed on two workstations and a notebook computer (for Canon EOS CR2 / CR3 RAW file editing). Although I do not work with Lightroom CC for personal editing, I have extensive hands-on experience with Lightroom CC on Android (and local / cloud-based requirements users may have). Anybody is welcome to contact me for Adobe Lightroom deployment / Lightroom catalog management and / or migration.
