Getting Started with Adobe Lightroom

Saturday May 19th 2018 – 9.30am to 4.30pm in Tansley, near Matlock in Derbyshire. Places cost £90.00 each.

Special offer: book this course together with our course “Edit Your Photos with Adobe Lightroom” on June 2nd and get a £10 discount!

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

This one day course will help you to get started using Adobe Lightroom and how to use its Library module to organize, sort and view  the thousands of digital photographs that we create. 

While Lightroom is probably best known as an image editor, it is in fact much more than that. It has powerful image management capabilities which cover the photographer’s workflow from end to end – from copying pictures off your camera’s memory card right through to sending them for printing, creating slideshows, putting them on the web or sending them via email.

This course will show you how to get started with Lightroom, explain how it works differently from other photo applications, how to use its powerful tools to help you organise and sort your images, and teach you best practise to make sure that you can easily find any particular image or group of images.

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 7 day trial from the Adobe website here. Extensive written course notes will also be provided for you to take away with you.

You can request a booking form for this course here.
