This workshop will thoroughly cover the Library and Develop modules where you manage, keyword, edit and enhance your images. With hands-on practice, learn how to quickly and easily import, organize, edit, rate, and enhance your images, and how to work through large shoots efficiently with synchronized settings and presets. We will discuss how Photoshop will still fit in your workflow, and learn how to move between Lightroom and Photoshop easily.
We will take several images through the entire Develop workflow, reviewing tools as we go. Topics emphasized will be based on student needs. You will have time to practice with your own images, ask questions, and get feedback on your work.

No prior experience with Lightroom is necessary; however a working knowledge of computers is necessary for you to get the most from this workshop. A laptop computer loaded with Lightroom Classic CC is required. If you own the stand-alone version of at least Lightroom 5, you will not have a number of the newer features, but you are welcome to attend. You can download a trial version of Classic CC at Adobe.com.
If you have the cloud based version, which is simply called Lightroom CC, that is a very different program and we won’t be covering it.
