Lightroom for Photographers Course
Have you taken hundreds of pictures on your last holiday trip? Do you wish you could edit and perfect your photos in a fast intuitive way, then efficiently organise and share them? Then our Adobe Lightroom for Photographers course is what you’re looking for.
This will include how to name and organise your files, followed by an introduction to the Lightroom interface. We will then go on to take a look at the fundamental principles and actions of Lightroom, followed by a variety of hands on guided and individual practice.
Finally, you will learn how to resize, save and prepare your image for output.
I felt I was quite proficient in Adobe Elements, but although I also had Lightroom on on my PC always felt a bit intimidated by it. My main problem was “import & export” and this course has been very helpful in overcoming any “fears”. I have enjoyed today and would recommend the course!
