I’m really excited to announce the Monthly Edit Membership Lightroom training site launch is a success!  Hundreds of you have joined the site since its launch and my email just a few days ago and I’m humbled by your enthusiasm.

For those of you who haven’t heard, I just launched a Lightroom training membership site called the Monthly Edit Membership.  Each month the site delivers 5 new Lightroom training videos that show me editing an image from straight out of camera to final product.  In addition, you get 10 new Lightroom presets every single month!

I priced it super-low at only $9.99/month or $95/year (20% discount) so its affordable enough that anyone who really wants to take their Lightroom editing to the next level can do so without breaking the bank – thats the price of two coffees per month… :)

There are no contracts or time commitments so you can stay a member as long as you want and cancel whenever you feel you’ve received enough training.


A Video-Walk Through of the Monthly Edit Lightroom Training Site

I received a few emails from email subscribers wanting to see how exactly the site was structured and how it worked before joining the Monthly Edit.

I just created a five minute walk-through video that shows exactly how the site works, how you navigate it, watch videos, download presets, and even track your progress through each months course content. Check it out below:


Below are some answers to your questions.

I received some great questions that I apparently hadn’t answered on the site’s FAQ and I wanted to answer them below.


Will the price of the Monthly Edit Membership be going up?

Yes it will.  If you are considering joining, NOW would be the time to do it!  Remember I provide a full 30-day money back guarantee so you can try it out for a full month before making up your mind.  If its not to your liking just shoot me an email asking for a refund and I’ll process it no questions asked the very same day.


Are the presets the same ones that I’ve bought before?

Not at all!  I create brand new presets from scratch each month for the Monthly Edit Membership.  These are totally different than my original 100-Lightroom-Preset Collection and the Evolution Preset Collection.

Some presets are focused on color, some are new black and white, some are new film-style presets I’m becoming obsessed with, etc.  Each month’s presets are new and totally unique, and only available to Monthly Edit Members.


If you cancel can you still go back and view the videos and presets you’ve paid for?

The way most membership websites work is you can view the content as long as you are a paying member, but once you stop paying you don’t get access anymore.  I didn’t like that, so with the Monthly Edit you will always be able to go back and view the content you’ve paid for!

So if you are a member for 10 months and then cancel, you won’t get any new videos or presets but you will still be able to log in and view the first 10 months presets and videos!  This is the way I’d want to be treated and I wanted to treat you the same way.


Do you only have 30 days to view each months videos?

This kind of goes with the last question but no, you have as much time as you’d like to watch all the content you’ve paid for as a subscriber.


Are you open to suggestions on the type of videos and presets we’d like to get?

Absolutely!  I’ve spent a ton of time and energy creating this site, videos, and presets for members and I would love to hear any input you have on what you’d like to learn!

I’ve just had some members ask about doing some more landscape and flower training so I’ll be creating some videos and presets for that next month!

I’m open to anything you would like to suggest, just shoot me an email at mike@hackingphotography.com anytime.
