Catalog Creation and Input – Get started on the right foot by understanding the nature of a Lightroom catalog and how it relates to your photos. We will look at a typical Lightroom workflow, then focus in on the Library module, where you can import, organize, rate, and add metadata to your photos.

Processing – Using the same image processing technology as Photoshop’s Camera Raw plugin, Lightroom’s Develop module is where the magic happens. As a workflow tool Lightroom combines image-processing power with speed and efficiency, allowing you to get geat results in less time. We will learn how to make exposure and color corrections, crop, basic retouching, red eye reduction, sharpening, saturation, B&W conversions,andmore!

Output – You will learn how to get your finished photos out into the world, from delivering individual files to creating web pages and slideshows to making prints.

This class is taught through careful instructor demonstration. Students should bring their laptop with Lightroom v4 or v5 installed to add to their experience. You should know your Mac or PC operating system before you come.
