Adobe Lightroom offers photographers of all levels the power and productivity of a managing, editing and photo-sharing tool that is second to none! Lightroom is the best all-around photo editing tool available. Designed exclusively for photographers it meshes seamlessly with Photoshop. Many professionals however, find they can often handle most or all of their digital darkroom workflow right in Lightroom.

This workshop focuses on the three most important Lightroom modules, starting with the Import module, the choices available and their influence on the results. Next is the Library module which allows you to organize, rate, sort, keyword, label and even compare images side by side. The Develop module allows you to make global and local adjustments including spot removal, red-eye reduction, black and white conversion, exposure adjustments and color corrections to your images. In this module you'll be amazed to learn how much you can get out of any image.

From Lightroom you can export your images, print them or publish to a web site. We'll finish with a demonstration of exporting and a review of the Print and Web modules. You'll see that sharing your work in Lightroom is easy, with many choices to upload photos for display on the Internet.

This workshop will help you overcome any intimidation post production photography software may cause. You will love what you learn to do with this software!

The workshop consists of numerous demonstrations of techniques using Lightroom 6. You don't need to have a laptop with you in order to benefit, but you're encouraged to bring one and follow along. If you have not taken the plunge for this program, Adobe offers a 30 day trial of Lightroom.

Previous Lightroom experience is not required, however a working knowledge of computers is necessary for you to get the most from this workshop.
