Getting Started with Adobe Lightroom CC (formerly Mobile)

What You'll Learn

Enhance the power and flexibility of Lightroom on your mobile devices, in a web browser and on your laptop computer! Join Steve Gandy for an in-depth look at the latest edition of Lightroom CC. It is a free app for any mobile phone/pad user but used in conjunction with the desktop program it really shines "light" into both workflows. For a monthly fee you can store up to 1GB or more of images in Adobe's cloud, use it on the desktop and mobile devices, make use of enhanced editing tools, and have the images synced everywhere.

In this workshop, Steve will set you on the right path. You will learn how to view, share, edit and coordinate your images between desktop and mobile device. Photos synced are available on all of your devices, for viewing and editing. You choose which ones are available. You will use the same editing tools we love on the desktop version of Lightroom.

Learn to use the arguably best mobile camera app and shoot in RAW and HDR on compatible devices.

All of this makes the mobile version of Lightroom a great addition to the power of Lightroom.

What to Expect

Expect to see the entire application demonstrated with all the functions. If you can bring your mobile device and laptop you'll be able to follow along as Steve will make this as "hands-on" as possible. Please have the apps installed before class.

An Important, Special Note About Adobe's New Names for Lightroom

If you are asking yourself, "which Lightroom do I want?", please read the following:

Adobe has recently updated, renamed and enhanced the Lightroom program world! Some of the details and names are confusing but essentially there is now a full mobile/cloud version for mobile devices, web browsers and desktop computers. While the original Lightroom for the desktop has been updated and enhanced. Here are the facts:

Lightroom CC (formerly known as Lightroom Mobile) is the cloud-native programs for phones and pads. But now there are versions for web browsers and desktop Mac and Windows computers too. It stores everything in the cloud so you can access all of your photos from any point. It has been quite useful on our smart-phones but the desktop and web versions are new so their features are limited now. Many pundits think that this is the future and its feature set will continue to improve but full use will depend upon very fast (and dependable) internet access.

Lightroom Classic CC (formerly Lightroom CC - do you see the naming problem?!) is the latest version of the Lightroom we have been using on our desktop computers with its professional image editing and organization workflow. This new version has performance enhancements and other improvements. This is the next advancement of Lightroom CC 2015 and Lightroom 6. It stores all of your photos on your computer, as it always has.

If you're trying to figure out which Lightroom you need, contact us and our instructor (Steve Gandy) will help you figure it out. Please note that the $9.99/mo. Photography Plan gives the buyer Photoshop, Lightroom Classic CC, and Lightroom CC with 20GB of online storage. So, you can try them both may end up using both for different parts of your workflow!

This information is subject to change :-).

Who Should Take This

Anyone interested in integrating Lightroom CC’s power into their mobile device as well as anyone that just wants the best photo taking and editing experience on their mobile.
