After you’ve made the image, what happens once the image is in your computer is one of the most important steps in your work. Adobe Lightroom will help you get the most out of your images and create an organized workflow.
The first class will start with planning your workflow including a discussion of best procedures, guidelines for folder structure, creating a back up system, and the initial set up of preferences and settings for your Lightroom catalog. In the following weeks we will be importing images with the first emphasis being on the Library Module for sorting, ranking, and creating organization, including how to create a system that will allow you to easily find images in years to come. The other emphasis will be the Develop Module for processing files to get the best quality in tone and color, dust removal, basic retouching, and image enhancements. Lastly we will cover exporting images, and the basics of the output modules; Print, Book, Slideshow, and Web.
A basic working knowledge of your computer is necessary for you to get the most from this workshop. (You must be able to make and name folders on your computer). We will be using Lightroom Classic – the desktop centric software. No prior experience with Lightroom is necessary.
