August 12:What is Adobe Lightroom? Why use it if you’ve already got Photoshop?

Workflow, workflow, workflow

Fazia Rizvi will take you on a tour of one of the essential asset management tools of professional photographers, and show you how you can use it to mange your own photos and videos, zipping through photo processing tasks that used to take hours. We’ll walk through the options available on importing photos, either from a camera or from an archived collection, then explore the Library and Develop Modules. You’ll learn how invaluable Lightrooom is to managing your organization’s photos, and speeding up your editing and publishing time.

You’ll also learn to:

  •  Import, tag, and catalog your photos
  •  Review, compare, and otherwise manage your images
  •  Create quick, smart, and manual collections
  • Enhance your images – make them pop without having to start up Photoshop
  •  Export your photos for print and web
  • Create smart edits and backup the catalogue

This course is targeted towards beginners who have no knowledge of Lightroom.
