What opportunities will this course give me?

There are so many benefits of learning a new skill; it stimulates the brain, boosts your opportunities for social interaction and offers a sense of escapism from the 9-5.

• Import your images - the necessary first step
• Sort and label your images
• Filter them to find the ones you want
• Crop and straighten images

The tutor will also aim to include into the course any requests that you may have.

Why is this course for me?

If youre keen to learn how to use Adobe Lightroom Classic, from how it works to making changes, then this is the course for you.

The course will give you an essential overview of how Lightroom Classic works and is structured, as well as a workflow covering the entire process from importing your images to exporting them. You will learn about the Library and Develop modules, so that you can import and organise your images; make any corrections needed, such as tonal or colour, along with blemish removal; enhance images using filters and the local adjustment brush; and then export them, in the right format, ready for the next step.

How will my learning be enhanced?
