Lightroom Getting Started

Lightroom Classic is a great solution for image organisation and management, rapid editing and adjustment, and sharing and presentation.

While Photoshop allows you to make incredibly complex edits to individual images, Lightroom offers a far simpler solution for photographers to manage their image catalogue, make bulk edits and adjustments, and rapidly output the final product.

Our one day introduction course gets you up and running on this powerful application in no time at all. We teach you how to use the interface to manage your image catalogue, edit metadata, detect faces, make adjustments to exposure or colour temperature, crop, and make localised corrections.
