Lightroom Workshop - Smart Previews & Location Workflows with Lightroom 5

Come explore the major new Library feature for Lightroom 5: Smart Previews. Lightroom now allows you to take your catalog on location, leaving your large photo library hard drives behind, and still work on your photos in Develop! The new Smart Previews feature opens up an entirely new workflow for traveling photographers.

In this 4-hour workshop, we will also touch on basic strategies for basic photo library structure, that makes backup, recovery and archiving as painless as these necessary chores can possibly be. 

In addition, we will spend the last hour on super-user tips and techniques for squeezing every possible ounce of goodness from your image corrections.

To sweeten up the deal, every participant will receive their choice of a free Lightroom 4 Library DVD, or a Lightroom 4 Develop DVD, by yours truly.

NOTE: If you have not upgraded to Lightroom 5, you can download a 30 day trial.

 "George is a great instructor!  He is very thorough in his presentations and I have learned a lot from his classes.  He is also very personable and very good about answering questions."  Liz, Meetup member

"As a long-time Lightroom user, I began before I knew how to use it properly.  I only wish I could have had the opportunity to learn from George back then.  If so my data base of images would be in perfect shape! George has a distinct teaching style, I find his lessons relevant to my issues and easy to understand.  He's really taken the mystery out of this robust tool."

    Excellent class. George introduced me to several features that I was not aware of. Very good instructor with in-depth knowledge of Lightroom and the skills to teach.

    George Jardine is great instructor and the information on what is new in LR5 was very useful. Thanks George (and Krystal).

    Every time I take a Lightroom class from George I learn something new.

    I hope this isn't a basic class as earlier posters have questioned. Is it?

      George. I am using lightroom now but have to connect the external hard drive to work on large files. If you are going to show me a way to not have to lug the hard drive around all the time that would be great.

      If by "large files".... you mean your raw library, then yes! That's what Smart Previews are all about, and that's what a good portion of this class will be all about.

    Is this an introductory class? I know nothing about Lightroom.

    September 20, 2013

    • George J.

      Hi Chip,

      September 20, 2013

    • George J.

      Opps! Hit Return. Guess you can't do that here.

      This is not really an introductory class.... but for sure you'll learn a lot. We're going to try to do another "Getting Started With Lightroom" class soon.

    Well, I signed up. I am hoping George can drag me fighting and screaming into Lightroom after I have resisted it for years. I hope he can convince me that it will accommodate my work flow.

      Why fight and scream, Charlie? Resistance is futile. :-)

      Also, I will have 30-day trial installers for LR5 for everyone, but you should really come with it pre-installed on your computer. We only have 4 hours!
