Cut your editing time in half whilst producing pro quality images from your captures!

You will learn how to download and import your images into the Adobe Lightroom software then organise and manage a number of photo collections. This will make searching individual images from several thousand easy and quick through keyword allocation. We move on to show you how to prepare and export your images for either online or printed presentation as you are guided through a professionally developed workflow. Utilising a range of image file formats we will introduce you to the world of the digital negative (these will be supplied). We will then explore the editing and creative capabilities of Lightroom, organising, working on and exporting your now magnificent images. We will also examine the various methods to output your images.

You will be given weekly assignments culminating in a hands on printing session of your favourite image in class to take home. At the conclusion of this Adobe Lightroom course you’ll understand enough about Camera RAW and Adobe Lightroom to take your images to the next level.

    Frank was excellent, very patient with us seniors in the group. I got a lot out of the classes and even thought I had very little knowledge of Lightroom I still found it relatively easy to follow. I am looking forward to playing around with it.

    I learned so much from Frank who knows his stuff well. I’m now armed with what I need to know to successfully edit my photos. I would recommend you consider a handout to give to students covering the course material. I’ve looked back on some of my notes and can’t seem to understand what I’ve written on some points. Having something to refer to would be excellent. Great course and I highly recommend it.

    It’s astounding that such a proficient and professional user as Frank is able to import his knowledge to absolutely beginners and so generously and patiently. It’s a fantastic course and a perfect companion to the 8-week beginner course.
