Adobe Photoshop Lightroom delivers a complete workflow solution for the digital photographer from importing, reviewing, organizing, and enhancing digital images to publishing photos, producing presentations, creating photo books and web galleries, and outputting high-quality prints.
On Saturday 18th May RPS London region will again be running a repeat session of the first in this short series of Adobe Lightroom Workshops. The workshop is aimed at beginners or existing users who feel they are not utilising the workflow solution to its best advantage.
The aim of the first workshop is to introduce you to the Lightroom features below:
- What Lightroom does and how the files work.
- The workspace - Adjusting layouts and customising.
- Importing - Organising, renaming, backing up, creating presets and file destinations.
- Reviewing - Navigating, viewing, comparing, rejecting and deleting
- Organising - Moving and synchronizing files & folders, collections, keywords, Metadata, flags and ratings, searching
The workshop will be given using a large TV Screen and notes supplied in various formats (hard copy, PDF, Epub for ipad/iphone), however to get the best out of the workshop it is recommended that you bring a laptop with Lightroom loaded on. If you do not have a copy of Lightroom, you can download it from Adobe.com with 1 months free trial. To ensure there are enough of the right type of photos for the workshop, a memory stick with a selection of photos to work on will be provided, however if you would prefer to use your own photos please have them ready for importing from a card reader/memory stick.
An approximate time table for the day is given below. The exact timetable will depend on various factors such as the level of existing knowledge within the group and the weather.
