One of the biggest problems all photographers suffer is shooting too many photos, and that in itself creates a massive organisational headache. How on earth do you keep track of the hundreds or thousands of image files that you create? And perhaps, more importantly, how can you ever find what you need at a later date?
The simple answer is to use Adobe Lightroom Classic to sort, organise and edit all of your pictures.
This new class is structured for beginners, novices with nothing more than a pile of image files and a desire for pictorial order.
In this class you will learn how to manage the image Catalog (the database where Lightroom stores all of its picture information) plus, how to save, back-up and even how to transfer this database to different computers and hard drives, when needed.
I feature short videos that illustrate how easy it is to sort your work into Collections as well as how to add Keywords, Stars, Colour Labels and Flags, all features which can be used to help find images months, or years later.
Once you get the hang of creating and using Lightrooms Collections (virtual folders that house your images) we move into explaining the ins and outs of the different Lightroom Modules (Library, Develop, Book etc), and its editing tools, before moving to some of its more sophisticated features like the Adjustment Brush, Detail Panel (sharpening), Transform Panel (perspective fixing) and more.
You will quickly appreciate that everything in this powerful image organiser and editor makes a heap of sense to photographers because it has been designed so beautifully, encompassing everything we need to produce beautiful, stunning results...
I have been shooting images for the best part of 35 years, originally working in the UK, and now in Australia. In the year 2000 I started my own publishing company, producing several quarterly magazines that proved to be best sellers for nearly 15 years. I now teach all things photographic through the Centre for Continuing Education (Sydney University), and conduct specialist small group photo tours for amateur photographers all over the globe. I think its the best job in the world...
