What you'll learn in this lightroom class:

Tips, fixes, and settings to make your Lightroom life easier and more manageable.

Adobe Lightroom is the most popular photo editing and cataloging software available, and for good reason. It’s an all-in-one package that encompasses a robust and easy to use editing toolkit, as well as a Library module for organizing and cataloging your entire image collection.

The problem is we all love to take photos and work with them in Lightroom, but getting them organized in Lightroom can often take a back seat and we then often find ourselves with a big photo mess.

Peter Bennett works with a lot of private clients who repeatedly ask him to help untangle this mess. Common questions are:

  1. How do I find all the unlinked and missing images in my catalog?
  2. How do I deal with all the duplicates, triplicates, and more, in my library?
  3. Can you show me how to import my images in a consistent and easy to understand way?
  4. My images are all over the place, how can I get them all in one place?
To make our lives easier, Peter offers this practical three-hour class to a larger audience, addressing these questions and more. Topics covered include:

  • A simple and and easy to understand explanation of exactly how Lightroom works with yourimages.
  • How to find and re-link lost images.
  • Setting up an import system that provides you with consistent and manageable results.
  • Pulling back the curtain on Lightroom Catalog settings and preferences.
  • DNG vs. Raw, which is better?
  • Working faster, smarter, and more efficiently with your images.Understanding how Lightroom works and setting it up correctly from the start is so critical in avoiding these problems, but even if you don’t, it’s never too late to start doing things right. Having confidence in the way you work with Lightroom, and learning a few good practices can make all the difference, save you time, and helps you get back to taking pictures instead of trying to manage them.
