Course details

Using Mac computers or your own laptop (must have access to Adobe Lightroom Classic and Photoshop programs), you'll be guided through the process of how to manage your digital workflow and output high quality images through Adobe Lightroom Classic and Adobe Photoshop.

You'll learn and explore the most commonly used commands and techniques to improve your workflow and the myriad of creative possibilities available to give your images maximum impact.

Starting with RAW files you'll be shown how to process and then prepare the images for various web and digital outputs, along with higher resolution print output. This will lead to discussions about print and where your images maybe placed after the digital process has concluded.
