Lightroom: Organizing Images
Adobe Lightroom is a wonderful photo software that lets you organize and adjust your digital photographs. In the next 10 years you will have thousands of digital images that you need to organize. Learning how to organize them now and doing it as you go is a great idea. It also helps you enjoy your best photos more. Adobe Lightroom has a great organizing module that we will cover in this workshop. I recommend Adobe Lightroom as your foundation and Photoshop as something you can learn if you need to after Lightroom.

This class is perfect for anyone that loves to take photographs from beginner to long time photographer. Adobe Lightroom is great at helping you organize your digital images so you can find them, share and enjoy them. There are many advantages to Adobe Lightroom over Photoshop. If you want to learn photo software I would suggest starting with Adobe Lightroom.
A computer with Adobe Lightroom installed and working.
A note pad and pen to take notes if you would like to or a tablet or computer for taking notes.
Some people don't have a laptop and come and just take notes.
You may bring a laptop if you want to follow along with your own images; however, the instructor will not be able to provide computer, OS or application support.
