An introduction to organizing and editing your photos with Adobe Lightroom

Saturday January 13th 2018 – 9.30am to 4.30pm in Tansley, near Matlock in Derbyshire. Fully booked.

The location is easily accessible from Sheffield, anywhere in Derbyshire, Nottingham or Manchester.

This course will be limited to just 6 persons, with places costing £90.00 each.

This one day course will help you to get started using Adobe Lightroom to organize and edit your digital photographs. Whether you are completely new to photo editing, or already have some experience with basic image editors such as Picasa or Photos, this course will show you just how easy it can be to make your digital photos dramatically better, and make your photography much more rewarding. Now that it’s available for around £100.00, Adobe Lightroom represents an excellent choice for photographers wanting easy to use, yet professional quality photo editing software – and without the steep learning curve and ongoing monthly fees of Photoshop!

To ensure everyone gets plenty of individual attention, numbers on this course will be limited to a maximum of six people, and places cost £90.00 each (not including lunch).  Lightroom is cross-platform, so works on both PCs and Macs, with only very minor differences between the two systems. You are recommended to bring your own computer to follow what is being demonstrated if you can, but it is not essential. If you don’t already have a copy of Lightroom, you can download a free 30 day trial from the Adobe website. Extensive written course notes will be provided for you to take away with you.

You can request a booking form for this course here.

This course is equally suitable for people who are completely new to Lightroom, or those who already have some basic experience with it. It is an ideal starting point if you want to make sure that you understand how the software works, and learn how to begin using it in a way that suits your working methods. (If you are already comfortable using Lightroom, but would like some more advanced training in just its editing functions, our Edit Your Photos with Adobe Lightroom course may be more suitable for you).

On this one day course you will learn:

  • what Lightroom catalogues are, and how they work
  • how to set up your preferences
  • how to import and organize your images, and how Lightroom can work with your existing photo storage structure, or help you create a completely new system
  • how Lightroom can help you sort through large numbers of images, to find the best ones, or the ones you need to work with
  • how to perform basic edits to your images to improve them
  • how to create copies of your files for specific purposes (such as for emailingweb use or high quality printing)

It took less than 10 seconds to dramatically improve this image using only 2 sliders in Adobe Lightroom

As Lightroom is one of the new generation of “non destructive” image editors, you will be shown the crucial  importance of understanding how it works differently from most photo editing software (such as Adobe Photoshop), and the advantages that come from this approach. And while most photographers find that Lightroom can handle most, if not all, of what they need to do with their digital images, you will also learn how easily Lightroom integrates with other photo editing software (such as Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements if you already have them) when you need their extra features.

The course is being held on January 13th in the village of Tansley, near Matlock in Derbyshire. The cost is £90.00 per person. There is free car parking available, and a pub nearby for lunch – or you can bring a packed lunch if you prefer. Tea, coffee and biscuits during the day are included in the course price.
