Adobe Lightroom is an incredibly powerful tool for photographers of all levels. In this two-and-a-half-day intensive you learn the ins-and-outs of proper Lightroom workflow to help you strengthen and streamline your photographic output.
Will begins by explaining how Lightroom handles files, then takes us through importing and organizing image files from our cameras and hard drives. Lightroom’s powerful organizational tools make it possible to sort through thousands of images with ease, and a principal goal of this workshop is to teach you how to navigate this program’s essential element. Using Lightroom’s system of Collections, Keywords, Flags, Stars, and Color Labels, you gain a solid understanding of how to simply manage photographs stored on your home computers.
From organization we move onto Lightroom’s powerful developing tools. Using the Develop module, we make adjustments ranging from correcting exposure to creative vignetting, in order to enhance the quality of our images. Will also demonstrates how to synchronize Develop settings across groups of images in order to streamline your workflow. We wrap up by learning how to export images for print or web viewing.
After a quick review of the skills that were covered, you’re equipped to get the most out of your digital images using Adobe Lightroom at home.
