Digital photography is only part photography. The rest is all digital which means time spent in front of a computer importing, sorting, selecting, tweaking, tagging, finishing, printing, sharing, uploading and showing your images. Lightroom is the premiere software program that handles all of those tasks with relative ease and quite a bit of elegance. It has changed the way professional photographers work and is increasingly the choice of amateur shooters as well.

What you’ll learn:
In the series of four classes you will learn how to set up Lightroom, import images and use the wealth of editing tools to improve your photos. You’ll understand how to use Lightroom’s ability to instantly find any photo in your collection based on keywords. You’ll also learn how to print, create web galleries and slide shows and share images online from within Lightroom. Detailed class outlines can be found under the overview tab of each class.

All classes include an illustrated handout so you can follow along with the presentation. You can sign up for any of the classes you like, but it’s highly recommended that you take all four to appreciate and understand what this software is capable of.

What you’ll need:
You can bring your laptop to the class or you can learn by watching the live demo, following in the handout and taking notes. If you do bring your laptop, make sure you have the latest version of Lightroom loaded. You should already be well acquainted with your computer hardware and settings and know your way around your operating system. If you don’t already own Lightroom you can download a free 30 day trial here.

  • Cost per person is $65 early registration (available until 5 days before class start date), $75 late registration.
  • All four classes are available at a discounted bundle rate of $220 (available until 5 days before the first class start date).
