Lightroom Basics

Event Details

This entry level Lightroom course is taught by Photorec Toby of Photorec Toby Youtube fame!  Many photographers want to learn this powerful software but upon opening it, feel completely overwhelmed.

In this beginning course, Toby will show you the various tools and basics to get you started.  Maybe you are confused by whether to use Lightroom, Photoshop OR both!  Maybe you prefer to just work in Lightoom? Maybe you have no idea about either software and where to start?

During this 3 hour class we will cover the following topics – 
  • -Installing Lightroom
  • -Determining where to store your images
  • -Efficient importing
  • -Keeping images organized
  • -Basic Editing
  • -Lightroom Tips for easy editing
  • -Sharing your images with friends and family

With the power of Adobe products these days, at such reasonable prices, there are a lot of options.  This course will help you understand some of the basics with Lightroom so you can decide what software is right for you.  In fact, MANY people use Lightroom to start working on their images and organize, then transfer to working in Photoshop for more control. The suggestion is to take this course and decide what is right for you based on what you want to produce with your photography.

But I don’t own Lightroom. No problem
I own it but I have never used it? No problem.
I’ve played around with it but have no clue. No Problem.

You do NOT need to own Lightroom to take the course. In fact, it is HIGHLY recommend that you come and take notes. YES, that is correct. Why? Because we have found that people get lost and miss the steps they need. It is far better to take notes of each step and THEN apply what you have learned at your own pace at home. This in fact is how the professional photography industry works when teaching this software at conventions.


1. Come with nothing and take lots of notes of each step and what the LR Tools are all about.
