Adobe Lightroom Intensive
Adobe Lightroom Interface
May 30-June 1
with Jerry Courvoisier
Adobe Lightroom is an essential new image management application that makes
the digital photography workflow more efficient. It facilitates editing, processing,
and preparing output for slide shows, Web galleries, and finished prints.
Led by Jerry Courvoisier, who used Lightroom over a two-year period during
the pre-release development stage, this two-and-half-day, hands-on workshop
provides a wealth of information on how to organize, develop, and process images
with maximum efficiency so that you can spend less time processing images and
more time taking pictures. Participants work with a series of their own images,
Raw and/or JPEG files, as they become acquainted with and practice the fundamental
processes of the Lightroom workflow. They also learn when to turn to Photoshop
CS3 for adjustments that can't be made in Lightroom.
