Adobe Lightroom Workshops with Rob Sylvan

------ See below for Registration and Payment information --------

Beginner/Intermediate Workshop: 9am -12 noon
The bedrock of any Lightroom workflow is being in total control of your catalog, your photos, and any associated preview caches, templates, and presets. In this session, you’ll  learn the fundamentals of this incredibly powerful tool — covering the Library and Develop modules where you manage, keyword, edit and enhance your images. Learn how to quickly and easily import, organize, edit, rate, and enhance your images, and how to work through large shoots efficiently with synchronized settings and presets.

Advanced Workshop: 1pm - 4pm
Lightroom’s primary purpose was to make the post processing workflow more efficient. You’ll learn how to leverage custom templates for importing, exporting, metadata application, how to create a custom default for raw photos, how to leverage the Library module to do batch processing faster and smarter, and how to tweak key program settings for better performance.

We’ll wrap up the class with a look at the more advanced aspects of post processing, such as getting the most out of the local adjustment tools (Adjustment Brush, Graduated Filter, & Radial Filter), streamlining your workflow between Lightroom and Photoshop (and back), leveraging the new Photo Merge tools, Mobile Lightroom, and more.
