Specifically designed for photographers with no prior post-production knowledge of ‘Adobe Lightroom’ to provide digital workflow solutions from capture to final output.

Using Mac computers in our specialist Photographic Digital Suite or your own laptop if desired, you will learn the most commonly used commands and techniques to improve images and also how to utilise some of the more creative effects.

This course will enable you to manage your digital workflow from capture to print and web output using Adobe Lightroom. You will learn how to import RAW files through Lightroom, to organise and process them in a completely non-destructive environment and use robust modules to output to print, slideshow or web.

You will explore the power of Lightroom automated functions, batch processing and actions scripts and examine the importance of colour management, profiling and calibration.
