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.
