Lightroom Classic: Foundations – Class Description
Mastering the post-processing stage can greatly enhance your photography and bring your images to a new level. Adobe Lightroom is widely regarded as the industry-standard software for photographers, offering a comprehensive set of tools for organizing, editing, and sharing digital photos.
The Library module in Adobe Lightroom serves as the foundation for your workflow. It provides essential features for importing, organizing, tagging, rating, and managing your photos. While it may initially appear to be primarily for viewing images, the Library module offers a range of options to streamline your workflow and make your photo management more efficient.
Throughout this class, you’ll receive a full overview of the library module and along with exercises and practical assignments to reinforce your learning. It’s a great opportunity to ask questions, exchange ideas with fellow learners, and receive guidance from an experienced instructor who can provide insights and best practices for using Lightroom effectively.
What you will learn:
- How to organize your photos to work within the Lightroom catalog
