I have visited Phlearn and Piximperfect, but have found them hard to follow they go so fast and their cursor is invisible so I can't see where they are clicking even if I stop, go back several times, and freeze frames. I may take Linda's advice and get a student from the local cc to sit by my side and point. After the holidays.

I agree those two fellers do seem to go awfully fast, which is a major reason why my first go-tos are Morganti and Kost. They take their time. But my personal experience is that the more you begin to grasp Lightroom (or Photoshop for that matter) the easier it becomes to follow the fast talkers. Sometimes. :) I think all four are tremendous teachers, but I also think it's helpful if folks slow down.

All the great photographers use cameras! No, really. :|

I have trouble all of the speedtalk some of those guys do. If you haven't yet discovered the way to pull down the script for those things: Click on the three little dots on the right hand side just under the video screen in U Tube videos, and click on the transcript option. That way you can read along, print it out and highlight stuff, add your own notes. The transcript helps me even for the slower talking ones like Kost.
