Lightroom I: Beginning Your Workflow

The Lightroom Library module forms the centerpiece of the whole Lightroom application. All the other modules--Develop, Map, Book, Slideshow, Print, Map--are driven from the Lightroom Library. Lightroom has become a photographer's primary application because it shines as an image management system. This class will develop your skills and understanding in managing your images, importing, exporting, archiving collections as well as implementing strategies for organizing images using keywords, metadata, collections, and folders. We'll also examine "snapshots" and virtual image copies. Class meets four Mondays: August 4th, 11th, 18th & 25th from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.
