Getting Started with Adobe Lightroom

Characteristics Of This Class:

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom enables you to import, organize, process, and output your photos all from within a single application. It was developed specifically to meet the multiple needs of digital photographers like you - at less than half the cost of Photoshop!

If you struggle to manage ever-increasing numbers of captured images, this workshop is for you! We'll explore Lightroom's intuitive controls for organizing photos and perfecting their tone, color and sharpness.

  • Exporting photos from Lightroom

Presented in Lightroom 5, but much of what is taught will apply to earlier versions of the program.
