Designed exclusively for photographers, Adobe Lightroom’s Develop Module offers incredible tools for editing our digital images.
Join Marie Joabar as she provides in-depth explanations of these tools and shows you various ways to edit your photos whether you shoot Raw or JPEG.
Lightroom’s Develop module provides the platform to make each image the best it can be. Marie will walk you though making global adjustments such as adjusting exposure, contrast, color, sharpness, noise reduction, and lens correction. Then we’ll move to the more powerful tools used for local adjustments such as the cloning, applying red eye or pet eye correction, the graduated and radial filters and the adjustment brush. Additional topics include applying edits to many images at one time, creating virtual copies and more.
This is a hands-on class, so you'll practice as you learn. Our class size is limited to eight students to ensure personal attention. Everyone will be given the same images to work with for consistency.
Note - At the class you'll bring your own laptop (desktops are fine too) loaded with LR 5, 6, or LR Classic. We will not cover the Lightroom Mobile version.
If you haven’t already downloaded Lightroom go to the Adobe site and look for the $9.99 Photography Plan that gives you Lightroom Classic and Photoshop (make sure your plan includes "Classic"). You can also download a fully functional 30 day free trial.
People who are interested in this class should have familiarity with the Lightroom workspace so we recommended that participants take The Lightroom Library or the Lightroom In A Day class before this one. Those classes lay the foundation for using Lightroom and having this grounding is helpful when working with any of the other modules. If your schedule does not allow for you to take either of those first, you CAN take this class but look for the next scheduled date for those and know that taking either of those will help you work through all that the Lightroom program offers.
This class is offered on other dates and locations. Follow the link here to see all of the Editing and Post Processing classes.

Class Limit: 8
NOTE - Students will be required to follow COVID-19 Safety Practices, conduct a Self-Screening Health Assessment and sign a Waiver of Liability prior to attending a class. These items can be reviewed on the class registration page.
