Lightroom 4 - Demonstration Only

Adobe's Lightroom photo editing software is a versatile and powerful tool for photographers of any level. Due to the great interest about this product I will be hosting a demonstration only lecture on the use of the software.

THIS IS A SHOW-AND-TELL DEMONSTRATION

This demonstration is designed for those of you with an interest in learning what the program can do before going out and buying it. It is also for those who have other programs and are curious to see if Lightroom is a better choice.

If you have Lightroom already but don't have a laptop to follow along in my other workshop you are more than welcome to attend this one too. You should still audit the other Lightroom workshop as I will be going over a lot more stuff at that workshop.

What will be covered

I do not have Lightroom 5 yet so I will be covering version 4 only.

I will be going over the key points of the program that make Lightroom such a popular choice for professional photographers. I will also be pointing out where Lightroom lacks in abilities.

I will also be demonstrating my digital workflow from importing to output. It will include;

  • Importing into your library and how it should be organized for non-Lightroom access
  • Going beyond the EXIF information by entering, modifying and accessing your metadata
  • Sorting, flagging and ranking images prior to editing
  • Understanding and using the develop module
  • Understanding and using presets for image editing
  • Understanding and using presets for image output
  • Understanding and using watermarks
  • Output conventions for easy post-processing access
  • Quick overview of the slideshow, book and print modules

Along the way I will be answering any questions you may have.

    Hopefully I wasn't too long-winded. There was so much information to cover I didn't want people to feel 'cheated'. Some great questions were asked and I can tell this will help more than a few members. A great evening overall.

    I see someone is waiting and unfortunately I'm not 100% sure I will be able to make it. I have an incident going on at work in RI and don't think I'll be able to break free....so I'm going to un-RSVP to allow the waiting photographer to get in. Darn (for me) as I really wanted to take this class...hope it will be repeated. Sorry :(

      If you happen to be able to make it, just come in. We'll get cozy and make room for you.

    • Debbie M.

      Thanks Duck. But as you already know by now...it didn't happen. I appreciate the offer to make room. Hope to see you all soon. Off to RI in the am...duty calls!

    This will be my very first meet up. Looking forward to it!

    Duck should we bring a laptop or would that just get in the way?

    July 21, 2013

    • 'Duck'

      This is just a "show and tell" or rather, "show and ask" and laptops will not be needed. This is for those who are thinking of getting LR but want to understand the benefits. Or for those who use something else and are considering switching. I have an actual hands on workshop coming soon.
