Adobe® Lightroom® Classic

Friday 17 ››› Sunday 19 March [ZOOM]

COURSE DESCRIPTION — Adobe Lightroom Classic software is a powerful photography editing and management application that has a mystifying reputation. Now with its native ability to generate precision masks the potential to improve your image processing workflow is better than ever before. Learn how during this weekend-intensive workshop. This hands-on experience engages participants in basic import, develop, and output workflow strategies, and perhaps even more importantly, obtaining a rock-solid command of Lightroom architecture and cataloging functions that keeps track of images.

Once underway we learn to import, identify, and adjust single images in addition to batch-processing numerous images simultaneously. Other tasks such as white balancing, sharpening, noise reduction, retouching, and doing local adjustments and enhancements are also demonstrated and put into practice.

We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the export workflow, and answer questions like, "which file format [JPG, PSD, or TIF] is the best choice for the future use of this image?" The instructor presents several demonstrations, but also spends time working with each participant on their own images. Participants are required to have a computer with Lightroom Classic installed to successfully complete the course. Camera RAW files stored on board your computer best serve all the learning processes, tools, and techniques of the course, but if you don’t have any availble they are provided for practice and instruction.

Zoom enables participants and instructor to dynamically interact with software demonstrations via screen sharing, and to get instant answers. The course content is not recorded.
