This course guides photographers through the essentials of Adobe® Lightroom® and Adobe Photoshop®—the most popular digital photo processing software available today.
The way we process photographs has changed significantly in the last decade. As the use of film has waned, most photographers must now master sophisticated digital processing software. This course guides you through the essentials of Adobe® Lightroom® and Adobe Photoshop®—the most popular digital photo processing software available today. Professional photographer Bob Warren introduces the fundamentals of these programs, discusses electronic photo editing and reviews essential tools for manipulating images. We explore topics such as using Adobe Lightroom as a pre-processor, the Photoshop interface, retouching, color balance and resizing. The first half of the course covers Lightroom and the second half covers Photoshop. Based on the Creative Cloud® version of Adobe products, the course is appropriate for beginning and intermediate users of Photoshop and Lightroom.
Bob Warren, M.L.A., is a professional photographer with more than 30 years of experience in still life, fine art and documentary photography.
