Upcoming Seattle Workshops
Lightroom is Adobe’s image management and enhancement program designed specifically for photographers. The program makes managing, enhancing and sharing your photographs easier and more efficient than a Photoshop-based workflow. Using the Library and Develop modules, learn how to organize, back up, manage, and enhance your RAW and JPEG images. Also learn how to work on multiple photos at once, and how to move between Lightroom and Photoshop or Elements. Gain insight into the benefits of shooting RAW files. Lightroom 4 is installed on all Photo Center NW Macs, but students may opt to bring their personal laptop loaded with Lightroom 4 or Lightroom 5 for this course. No prior experience with Lightroom is necessary;however a working knowledge of computers is necessary for you to get the most from this workshop.
