Adobe Lightroom for Photographers Workshop with Appleton Photo Training

Do you waste precious time searching for images on your computer? Spend far too long in Photoshop? Adobe Lightroom is for all photographers who want to significantly improve the way they organise and edit their images. This one-day course will help you revolutionise the way you work, streamlining your workflow and saving you lots and lots of time and effort.

It’s a supremely powerful piece of software: a sophisticated photo library system combined with a quick post-processing tool. Whether you are a hobbyist or a professional, no matter what you shoot, this is your chance to learn from a trainer who adopted the program in its infancy and has been using it for years. Andrew will share his knowledge and understanding of Lightroom, fast-tracking you through the process of setting it up and making it work for you.

The day’s training is split into four clearly-defined sections:

  1. Setting up Lightroom for your specific photography needs. We are all different. For example, if you are a wedding photographer, your optimum workflow pattern will differ from that of a landscape photographer. Therefore, this element of the course is designed to address how to configure Lightroom to suit the way you work. You will learn everything from importing and sorting, to backing up your images efficiently. For photographers on the move, discover how Lightroom CC and Lightroom Mobile can help you review, sort and even edit images when you are away from you desktop.
  2. Using Lightroom as a powerful and time-efficient editing tool. Learn how to use the Develop module for global and local adjustments, synchronising settings across hundreds of images instantly. Presets combined with virtual copies make What If? scenarios super easy. We dig deep into this function so that you become confident with how to import existing presets and create your own.
  3. Working with external programs. How far can you go with Lightroom? This section shows you how it dovetails neatly with other applications for images which require more complex post-processing. As well as a number of third party plugins, we look at how Lightroom works hand-in-hand with Photoshop for tasks such as skin-retouching, reshaping and creating composites.
  4. Exporting from Lightroom for print and web. Once you’re happy with the results, Lightroom helps you share your finished edits, appropriately formatted for each of your chosen media. You will learn how to set up export presets that correctly size and sharpen your images - and watermark if necessary - for a range of platforms. Discover how to use Publish presets to keep your website automatically up to date.
