Many photographers just use Lightroom to develop or enhance their photos as an alternative to Photoshop.

They are only using a fraction of its capability.

Lightroom is a powerful database integrated with the ability to sort and organise your photos, to process or enhance images, make photo books, slideshows, prints, upload images to social media and much more.

It has been designed specifically for photographers, by photographers. It is not a substitute for Photoshop. Indeed for specific jobs, Lightroom and Photoshop are most effective when they work together, as you will see during this workshop.

To get the most out of this program you have to be organised and do things in a logical order. Working with your numerous digital photos should be fun and interesting. You should have an efficient Workflow so that the process is not tedious and inefficient.

In this Essentials workshop, you will be guided through the different modules to help you Organise, Manage, Enhance and Share your photos. We will concentrate on the Library and Develop modules but also discover how we can use our photographs creatively with Photobooks and slideshows. Whilst Lightroom is brilliant at what it does there are some things it cannot do. If you want to combine 2 or 3 pictures on as single page, apply creative text effects or cut somebody out of a background this is only possible by using Photoshop.

We will demonstrate how to seamlessly move from Lightroom to Photoshop, apply these simple creative techniques and bring these images back into Lightroom.

- Set your camera to shoot RAW or JPEG files.
- Getting photos onto the computer - manual and automatic alternatives demonstrated.
- Import photos into Lightroom.
- Selecting, Rating, rejecting and (yes!) deleting images.
- Basic Development in Lightroom.
- Edit photos or multiple photos to create composites or other Layer effects in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.
- Export photos for other uses.
- Use other Lightroom modules, principally Books & Slideshow.
- Back Up routine for photos and catalogs.
