Course Description
Adobe Lightroom is an industry-standard software offering comprehensive solutions for organising, adjusting, retouching, and outputting digital images. In this workshop participants will learn to process images and manage digital files more effectively using the Library and Develop modules in Adobe Lightroom. They will gain familiarity with these tools through in-class exercises using sample images.

After completing this course, participants will have a thorough basic understanding of Adobe Lightroom and be able to execute a workflow within the software that meets their needs.

Technical Requirements
This course assumes little to no prior knowledge of Adobe Lightroom. It is suitable for beginner to intermediate photographers including those who have completed the Basic Photography workshop at Objectifs.

The course will be broadly useful to anyone seeking to manage their image files and perform basic edits — not only photographers but also producers, editors, journalists, librarians and information professionals, etc.

Sample images will be provided by the instructor for use during in-class exercises.
