Introduction to Adobe Lightroom
Adobe Lightroom is a family of software for organizing, editing, and sharing your photography. Lightroom lets you organize your photos on your computer and offers a rich set of tools for keeping track of your photos, such as collections, keywords, face recognition, flags, stars, color labels. It has an extensive array of search filters so you can find any photo based on when you took it, where you took it, who is in the photo, the camera used, camera settings, etc. In addition, Lightroom has a powerful set of advanced photo editing tools to make global adjustments to color, brightness, contrast and perspective and tools for local retouching. Photos in Lightroom a can be exported in a variety of different formats for printing, web posting and sharing, photo book creation and slide shows.
In this hands-on workshop, we will cover the Lightroom philosophy, modules and panels and explore in detail the Library module for organizing and managing your photos, the Develop module for photo adjustment and correction and we will touch on the Print module printing your photos.
Please bring a laptop or tablet computer with Lightroom 5, Lightroom 6 or Lightroom Classic CC installed. “Lightroom CC”, which is a different program than “Lightroom Classic CC,” is a cloud-based version of Lightroom and will not be covered in this workshop.
