Master RAW Processing in Lightroom 4

Whether you're a novice just getting started or a long-time digital photographer making the move to Adobe's Photoshop Lightroom 4, there are numerous tips and tricks to make your journey into RAW editing more enjoyable. In this class, I'll teach you the mechanisms behind Lightroom's tools to make them easier to understand and use so your images will look great.

In this live online session, I'll cover the fundamentals of setting up the Lightroom 4 Develop Module for optimal RAW processing regardless of your camera. I'll also cover some workflow tips and tricks for photographers moving to Lightroom from other RAW editing software. We'll then move to the Develop Module, where I'll show you how to process your images for maximum impact and a streamlined workflow.

Each participant in this class will be able to join the live audio conference and ask me questions directly in real-time. You'll also get a full PDF package of all the class notes..

To attend this course, you'll need a computer with a broad-band Internet connection and speakers. To participate in the live conversation, you need either a microphone on your computer or a telephone line to call the dial-in number (US toll rates may apply).

    The Mastering the LR4 Develop Module webinar was great! I had been looking for a workshop that focused on just the develop module. Jason has a great teaching style and is easy to follow. I liked receiving the pdf ahead of time so I could follow along and take notes. The interactive format which allowed me to asked questions was a plus! I am looking forward to participating in more webinars, i.e., Silver Efex Pro, Color Efex Pro, etc. Thanks Jason!

    I was on the waiting list for this - Master the Lightroom Develop Module. It is now 13:30 hers, my time, the meeting should have started and I have not heard from you - so I guess you are not taking me on for this meeting. A notification would have been appreciated instead of me waiting online in front of my computer..

    Jason, this is my second successful workshop with you (previously was in your Silver Efex Pro 2 workshop). You are thorough and keep the class moving so that nothing is neglected. But your style is very personable and helpful. Although much to digest, what we received in the workshop definitely helps us to get our arms around the material and its applications. Thanks and my best.
