Introduction to Lightroom

A few members have asked me about Lightroom. It is an application I use almost daily. I am sure I am using only some of it's powers though. Like most Adobe products there is a lot of depth to it.   

This is a class to understand the basics of file organization and editing in Lightroom. Topics will include: 

• Setting up basic work environment

• Importing folders into LR

• How LR organizes your files. 

• Ranking images 

• Using Catalogs 

• Basic editing tools for both .jpg and RAW formats 

• Intro to adjustment brush and other more advanced editing tools 

If you own a copy of LR and haven't explored it, or are considering purchasing this image management and editing powerhouse, then this will be a class for YOU!

Participants are encouraged (but not required) to bring a laptop with an active or free evaluation copy (available from Adobe) on it. 

This will be a SmarterPics class. There will be a charge.

      Sorry you can't be there. Look at the Export options for automatically stamping exported images with either a graphic or text "watermark" aka signature.

    I will not have a computer with me. Hopefully I can put up enough watching your presentation to get started. After the class I may upgrade to V5.x.

      You should be fine, Franklin. Just take notes and watch the big monitor I will be using.

    Which version of light room will you be using. Most tutorials are with lr5 and are not helpful. I have lr4. Cheryl

      I will be demonstrating on V5.4. There are a lot of things that have stayed the same on v4.x or even 3.x.

      I changed my mind. I have v4.3 installed on my laptop now.
