How does it work? Where are my files? How do I find them years from now?
There are many reasons why Adobe Lightroom® is the industry standard these days for organization of images, and for most people, all they will ever need for editing their images. This can also be one of the most intimidating and confusing programs to use if you aren’t sure exactly what it is doing.
This class is designed for everyone from beginners just starting out to the seasoned pro looking for a logical workflow.

*I find most of the confusion in a Lightroom® class comes from everyone having their own unique problems. This class is designed to give you an overview of the workings of Lightroom’s® library module. By leaving your computer at home and later using the supplied materials and your newfound knowledge, it will help you make heads or tails out of your individual needs when you return home to your own computer and a more efficient time for our class.
