Rocky Mountain School of Photography: Lightroom for Photographers

9 a.m., Thursday May 30

Why? Do you have a nagging feeling your photos could be better if you only knew more about image processing? Does managing images on your computer drive you to temporary bouts of madness? This four-day workshop— offered in select cities across the U.S. in 2013—is your ticket to easier, calmer, and more effective days working with images on your computer.

What? Adobe Photoshop Lightroom® is a powerful, professional-grade image management and enhancement tool that can furrow the brows of new users trying to learn it on their own. For serious amateurs and professional photographers alike, strong Lightroom skills can dramatically improve both your happiness level and your images. The majority of this course is spent where the action happens—in the Library and Develop modules—focusing on techniques for managing a large volume of digital images. From proper storage methods to understanding the relationship between Lightroom's database and your actual digital files, knowing the software from the ground up will help streamline your workflow. After the initial import of images, you learn how to work with files by using the rate, keyword, sort, find, and label functions. In the Develop module, making exposure adjustments, cropping, converting to black and white, and removing pesky spots are a breeze—and can dramatically improve your images. Lightroom even makes it easy to sync your actions to many images at once. Lastly, you get an introduction to the various methods of showing your work, from slideshows to publishing your images on the web.

Who? Lightroom is professional-level image management software and may not be appropriate for novice photographers. New users are welcome to attend but must have a solid working knowledge of their computer's operating system to get the most from this workshop. Participants are required to have their own laptop for this course.
