OVERVIEW


The Adobe Lightroom Course is an introductory training for this software. It’s recommended for beginners (with or without any experience) and you will be with other enthusiastic participants. This course begins with the basics of importing your images for the first time, editing them and then exporting them. You will learn all of the basics of Lightroom and feel confident using the programme.

By the end of the course you will be able to create retouched colour and black & white photos and prepare print ready photographs. This course will cover portraits and landscapes, and your skills will be transferable to any sort of photographic images in Adobe Lightroom.

WHAT DO YOU NEED?


  • No previous Lightroom experience is required, but even if you’re a new user, you’ll get a lot out of this course.
  • Some photography experience will help, but is not absolutely necessary.
  • Bring a couple of your own RAW files for the class to see, and you to work on. One portrait and one landscape is a good start.
  • InDesign CC 2015 installed (Free Demo Available here)
  • You can bring your own laptop. Or you may choose to borrow one of ours at no additional charge - Mac or PC.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND


Suitable for CS6 & CC 2015

This course is for people completely new to Lightroom. No previous design or publishing experienced is necessary.

This is a relaxed, well paced introduction that will enable you to produce most common publications. Only basic computing skills are necessary - If you can send emails and surf the internet then you will cope well with our course.
