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®, one of the most popular digital photo processing software programs available today. Professional photographer Bob Warren introduces the fundamentals of this program, discusses electronic photo editing and reviews essential tools for manipulating images. Explore topics such as using Lightroom as a preprocessor, tone/curve adjustment, color balance and resizing. Based on the Creative Cloud® version of Adobe products, the course is appropriate for Lightroom users at all levels. You must bring a Mac® or PC laptop to class, preloaded with the Creative Cloud suite and with Lightroom Classic CC installed. Information on installing these programs is provided upon registration.
