The Basics of Photo Editing with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom

, Photographer, Teacher

Now that you've taken your photos, what do you do with them?  Virtually every image shared by professional photographers have been post-processed with some sort of software.  Yes, it's important to nail a shot when you shoot it, but sometimes, even when you do, it lacks a little punch.  And sometimes, try as you might, you can't quite get the exposure or the effect that you want.  In this workshop, you'll learn to make the most of your images after you've shot them using Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.

Topics will include:

  • navigating between Lightroom modules
  • importing images
  • choosing and sorting which images to edit
  • understanding sliders and features of the develop module
  • improving tones, contrast, saturation, and brightness of your images
  • using and creating presets
  • cataloging and keywording
  • exporting edited images for sharing 

What You'll Need

Please bring laptops with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom installed.  The newest version (v 4.0) is ideal so that you can follow along with the instructor, but any version will suffice.  Please note that some of the features of Lightroom v 4.0 look and work differently than they did in previous versions, which could be slightly confusing.

In addition, please have on your machines at least a small body of digital (or digitized) work that you can practice on.
