Do you have a lot of images to manage and edit? Adobe Lightroom CC is the perfect tool for any digital photographer who needs to edit and sort images quickly and professionally. Whether you're an amateur or a seasoned professional, this Lightroom Workshop will help you get the results you need in a lot less time.

In these classes, you will learn how Lightroom can help you prepare, edit, and organize your photos quickly and effectively. Using Lightroom’s non-destructive editing, you'll be able to control how to edit your images and make additional enhancements later. You'll learn to apply changes to multiple images while developing an efficient image processing workflow. You'll also learn how to organize, tag, keyword and make collections with Lightroom's powerful organization tools; and fine-tune the overall color and lighting of your images. You can use Lightroom as a companion to Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe Photoshop Elements, or other digital photo editors, and you can export or print your work in exactly the size or format you need.

We will cover the Lightroom Catalog, the Library Module, the Develop Module, and the Print Module including Exporting for Print, Web and Mail.

Limited to just 8 students, the four evenings will introduce you to the concepts of the database (the Lightroom Catalog) and of non-destructive editing. It is important that students learn and understand these concepts so that they do not run into issues. From there students will learn to import, edit, print and export images.

So, put some polish on your photos, save time, impress clients, and stay organized as you unlock the mysteries of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC.
