Many photographers are finding Adobe Lightroom to be the perfect tool for organizing, processing and manipulating your images.
This beginner Lightroom course shows you step-by-step how to take control of your digital photography workflow.
Discover the most efficient method for downloading images into Lightroom and organizing them. Quickly import and manage your photo collection in a library that makes finding and editing your photos easy.
Learn the best way to make global and local color and tonal corrections to your images and take advantage of new world-class noise reduction capabilities. Convert images to black and white, as well as add tonal overlays, edge effects and film grain textures.
You will also learn how to configure the FTP settings in the web module so that you can create stunning web galleries with the click of a button.
This class takes place in our state of the art computer lab where each student is assigned a 27-inch iMac 2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5. You do not need to bring a laptop.

• Library module: Setting Up Lightroom: The Right Way from the Start
• Importing Images: From card and hard drive
• The Develop module: Editing Your RAW, TIFF and JPEG Images like a Pro
