Photography Courses


INTRODUCTION TO LIGHTROOM 5

Do you have a lot of images to manage? Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 is a fantastic tool for any digital photographer who needs to edit and sort images quickly. Whether you're a busy parent shooting lots of pictures or a professional photographer with many clients, Lightroom 5 will help you get the results you want in a lot less time.

In this course, you'll see how Lightroom 5 can help you prepare, edit, and organize your photos quickly and effectively. Using Lightroom 5's non-destructive editing, you'll be able to control how you edit your images and make additional alterations later. You'll learn to apply changes to multiple images while developing an efficient image processing workflow. You'll also see how to organize, tag, and make collections with Lightroom's powerful organization tools; create customized slideshows and presentations; and fine-tune the overall color and lighting of your images. You can use Lightroom 5 as a companion to Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or other digital photo editors, and you can export or print your work in exactly the size or format you need. 

So put some polish on your photos, save time, impress clients, and stay organized as you unlock the mysteries of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5. The hands-on, easy-to-follow exercises in this course will help you perfect your collections of digital photos!

Computer & Course Materials Requirements

Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 5 or an updated version of 5 (for example: 5.3). (Software must be installed and fully operational before the course begins.) 

Windows

Mac OS

Microsoft® Windows Windows 7 with Service Pack 1 or Windows 8 or 8.1; Mac OS X 10.7 or 10.8.

Note: Students will need to download zip files and extract images for use in class. We provide basic directions for this, but students should be comfortable with downloading files, saving them on their computers, and locating them for use. Both Macintosh and Windows users are welcome, but Mac users should be aware that the course is written using Windows. Mac-Windows differences are minimal and students with Macs will only need to make a few standard Windows-to-Mac conversions, and we include notes when those need to be made. Instructors have Mac computers and software available to answer questions. The software runs nearly the same on both.
