In this class you will be introduced to Adobe Lightroom and taken through the various modules that make it an essential part of your photographic workflow. We will start with the basic layout and move through an introduction to various aspects of each feature that make it such an incredibly useful tool for your process. Along the way, you will learn some of the hidden secrets that help you to organize your images and to edit them in the digital darkroom. We’ll touch on the use of external drives, backup options such as cloud storage as well as simple web publishing right out of lightroom. Topics will also include, catalogs, keywording and metadata, rating systems and shortcuts. A strong digital assets management can save you a lot of time on the computer so that you can spend more time with your camera. We will also discuss how to transfer existing collections and organizational systems to Adobe Lightroom so that you can take advantage of this all-in-one tool.
