The Lightroom Library In Depth

The Lightroom Library In Depth

Lightroom is the industry standard for amateurs and professional photographers alike, for organizing and editing our images. At the heart of this powerful program lies the Library Module where we import, organize, sort, rate and tag our images.

Spend a day with Marie Joabar learning the Library Module in-depth allowing you to set up and understand a system that keeps your images organized and easy to find. 

Beginning with the import dialog, Marie walks you through the various options and best practices for bringing images into your Lightroom catalog.  From there she’ll cover viewing options, rating, key-wording, sorting and searching, as well as looking at the preferences options and catalog settings. You’ll also learn the practical use of collections and how to create them, how to watermark your images and how to export images for various purposes.

Note - At the class you'll bring your own laptop (desktops are fine too) loaded with LR 4, 5, 6, or LR Classic. We will not cover the LR CC version which is the 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 CC, Lightoom CC and Photoshop (make sure your plan includes the "Classic"). You can also download a fully functional 30 day free trial. 

Participants of this class might enjoy the Lightroom Develop Module In Depth class. 

If you prefer to learn the Lightroom Library and Develop Module all in one day, consider our Lightroom In A Day class offered monthly.

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:  7

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.

With a talented staff of instructors and a wide variety of classes, its mission is to help those with a love of photography grow their passion and reach their goals - be it to capture better snapshots or become a professional photographer.

As an instructor herself, Marie finds just the right way to take complicated concepts and technology, and break the information down into easy-to-understand nuggets to share with others. Whether teaching photography basics or helping one better understand their camera, she works to take away one’s intimidation or sense of overwhelming that often accompanies learning new things so they can begin enjoying the craft and develop their skills.
