What's Covered

Lightroom can be a photographer’s best friend when understood and used properly. By taking charge of Lightroom’s catalogue system and simplifying your editing process, you’ll ultimately spend less time sitting and more time shooting! At the end of this workshop, editing will be a pleasure rather than a chore, and your photo library will finally have order.

  • Using Lightroom’s sophisticated cataloguing functionality to simplify your photo library
  • Navigating the Lightroom interface through importing, organizing, developing and exporting
  • Creating collections, applying keywords & metadata
  • Correcting white balance, color, histograms
  • Adjustment brushes, spot healing and cloning

Note: The content in this workshop is based on the most current version of Lightroom, Lightroom Classic CC. You are strongly encouraged to use Lightroom Classic CC. Older versions of Lightroom will lack certain features reviewed in this workshop.
