Introduction to Lightroom - Part 1 of 3 (7:00 PM PDT)
Introduction to Lightroom – Presented by Cindy Stephenson
Lightroom is a software program from Adobe that enables you to organize your images, create virtual collections of images along specific topics (travel, events, types of photography, etc.) quickly search for images that match specific criteria, and make non-destructive edits and enhancements to your images.
Before using Lightroom, you should have a good understanding of where your images are stored on your computer, and ideally, have them set up in a folder structure that makes sense to you. Being fairly comfortable with files and folders and computers, in general, helps as well.
Over three - two 1/2 hour sessions, Cindy will cover the following topics:
File and Folder Management: organizing your images, folders versus collections, how Lightroom works as a Catalog, your ideal folder and collection structure, backing up your images and Lightroom Catalog
Getting Started: bringing images into Lightroom from your computer and from your camera
Lightroom’s Library Module: organizing images into folders and collections, evaluating your images, searching for images, applying keywords, and exporting images
Editing Your Images: making global and local adjustments, sample digital workflow, how Lightroom works with other programs such as Photoshop, or NIK.
Registration is required. Please sign up for the August 27th date and you will be registered for all three sessions.
Each session will build on information provided in previous sessions, and for that reason, it is important that participants be able to attend all three sessions prior to registering.
The classes will be taught as a lecture style, rather than hands on. You will also receive written material following each class. There will be an assignment after each class, designed to reinforce the material covered in class. You will need access to Lightroom in order to do the homework.
