Learn to Improve the Way You Process, Manage and Show Your Images
Lightroom is a powerful tool that makes digital photography easier and more creative. Learn the Lightroom Essentials in our practical one day workshop that provides you with a basic overview of Adobe Lightroom along with tips and guidelines to improve your entire digital image workflow. We introduce you to Lightroom’s fundamental features and how to get the most out of it.
Lightroom will enable you to effortlessly keep track of all your images (regardless of where you’ve saved them on all your hard drives), edit your images and produce stunning output such as a quality print.
The objective of this workshop is to get photographers that are relatively new to Lightroom up and running quickly so that, with practice, you can decided on how to approach your own post processing workflow.
This one day introductory course is suitable for those completely new to Lightroom or just starting out. It will cover the process of importing your images, editing and organising them in the Library module through to the Develop module, where you edit your images as well as apply a range of artistic effects. To finish the day we will introduce you to some of Lightroom’s output functions such as Print, Slideshow and Books.
