What is Adobe Lightroom?
Adobe Lightroom is a photo editor and organiser. It offers a complete set of features that will help your photography workflow now and well into the future.
Post-processing is an inevitable and necessary part of digital photography.
Many people don’t want to spend lots of time editing and instead prefer to spend their time behind the camera, taking photos. However, taking a few minutes to organise your images after a photoshoot will allow you to get the very best from your hobby.
If a photo is worth editing, you should be able to do this in a few minutes – otherwise, it’s probably not worth editing.
Who Is This Course For?
It’s pretty easy to amass thousands of photos on your computer in a short space of time. And you’ll usually end up with them all over the place, making it near impossible to find a specific image. People often have duplicate photos too, that take up more space on your hard drive.
I’ve met many people that have Adobe Lightroom on their computer but” haven’t got around to figuring it out yet”. Instead, they continue to use Photoshop to edit their shots because simply, that’s what they have always used. But using Adobe Photoshop to edit your images is like using a JCB to crack a nut. Photoshop offers no management workflow either.
This Lightroom Workflow and Editing workshop is perfect for anyone who would like to learn how to use Lightroom as your complete workflow solution. It will give you a great basis on how to manage and edit your images to get the very best from your RAW files. I use this workflow myself.
I will simplify the Lightroom interface for you and show how you can quickly work your way through a small or large number of images to get the very best ones from your photoshoot.
