This class was developed for photographers new to Lightroom, who may be unfamiliar with the program’s many options, tools, and complex editing features, as well as those photographers that have some knowledge of the software. During our four sessions, we’ll demonstrate and break down each process, so you’ll become comfortable with the toolsets and techniques needed to prepare your images for sharing and printing. If you’re at an intermediate level with Adobe Lightroom, use this class to fill in those knowledge gaps that are keeping you from realizing your artistic vision. Discover hidden tools, options, and techniques that can take your creative images to the next level.
