Adobe Lightroom Classic makes it easier than ever to organize, edit, print, or share images, all from a single photo management and editing application. Take advantage of this powerful software and learn great techniques to efficiently edit photos and organize your growing photographic library.
In this workshop, we will cover Adobe Lightroom Classic from start to finish – including topics such as best practices to enhance and organize photography collections, creative image processing, batch editing, and how to export and print your finished images. Instructor Nathan Lomas is an expert Lightroom user and has helped students with Lightroom training for many years. By the end, you will have learned a number of effective tools to enhance photos, as well as a dedicated system for image organization.
We will also cover the Slideshow and Book creation modules if time permits. Students will need RAW image files to work with during the class, but no prior experience in RAW processing is necessary.
