About This Class
Lightroom is a popular software for image organization and editing, but its layout and multitude of features can be overwhelming. This class is designed to help students get a grasp on Lightroom’s powerful organization and editing capabilities by working with a single image from import to export as a toned, final image.
If you don't have a copy of Lightroom installed, you can download a free 30-day trial here: http://adobe.ly/9RqbIf.
In the beginning we will discuss importing and organizing images. Once we’ve made our selections we will take our favorite image into the development module. Here we will get an in-depth look at the basic development module and learn how to improve tones, contrast, saturation, brightness and colors. We will also discuss how to use and create presets for quick editing. At the conclusion we’ll discuss the export features to share the final images.

Great quick and easy to follow introduction into Lightroom. This allowed me to quickly explore the possibilities of this program together with adjusting a set of pictures I had to deliver!
I have not used Adobe Lightroom until I signed up for this class. It was very informative and with the step by step instructions provided by Alan Winslow, I was able to take an original photo through corrections with an understanding of each of the adjustments.
