Make Lightroom your workflow management tool.

Capturing your images is only the first step in making great digital images. Post processing and management of those images is an essential part of digital photography and there is no software package better suited for digital photographers than Adobe Lightroom.

In this intensive, information packed 2-day workshop, students learn how to develop an efficient image management workflow using Lightroom as a foundation. This is a hands-on workshop where we all work together with a sample set of images to learn how to import, organize, tag, process, and prepare for output of the digital images.

We place a particular emphasis on the library and develop modules of Lightroom to provide you with the essential skills to optimize your images and make them look their best.

Lunch is included for both days, other meals are on your own. Lodging is available on campus, private room & bath.  $75/night

Prerequisite: A basic understanding of computers and the Macintosh operating system is encouraged. This class will be held in one of our digital classrooms, Macintosh computers, and sample images will be provided.
