Introduction to Lightroom

LightroomThe next Lightroom workshop is taking place Wednesday 17th February

This workshop is suitable for those who have had little or no experience with image editing. If you’ve only dabbled with editing a few JPEG images up to now, you may be surprised to see just how much more image goodness can be squeezed out of each photograph – even when you ‘get it right in camera’ first.

Lightroom has been designed especially for photographers to enable them to do many image organising and editing tasks as easily as possible but the work flow is different from most other image editing software and this can be a little confusing at first. For this reason, we take the time to fully explain the workflow used in Lightroom and show you how to organise your images and take control of your photos. Only then do we move on to image editing. By the end of this workshop, you will be able to confidently import, organise, edit and output your images for print or the web.

One popular aspect of this workshop is that we invite you to bring some of your own images for us to use as examples. This enables us to cover the Lightroom editing tools in a very practical way so that you don’t just understand what each tool does but when and how to use them.

All Image Matters workshops are specifically tailored to the needs of those attending – making them among the best value for money available.
