We will begin with the Import process and all that entails, handling your memory cards, working from existing hard drives, backing up when traveling. We will cover Keywording, use of Folders and Collections and how to flag and rate your images for efficient editing. From here we will tackle the Develop module and its exciting new additions in Lightroom CC. First we will cover the fundamentals, making sure you understand the powerful global adjustment tools before we tackle the ever more precise local adjustment tools.
From here we cover the ever important “how do I get my images out of Lightroom?” questions and show you all aspects of image export. We will finally look at the additional modules of Print. Slideshow, Book and Web.
