A Hands-on way to grasp the concepts of the Lightroom Develop / Print Application This is a learn-by-doing experience and will increase your retention as you work through the classes presented. This course is designed to take you by the hand and work you through one aspect at a time with your own laptop. The only requirement is to have a laptop, mouse and pad that you can bring to class. We will provide sample files and images for you to work with as we take you step by step through the Develop and Print process. The course will be both classroom presentation from instructor(s) as well as hands on practice exercises. The course goal is to help you build a solid foundation of what is involved in creating an image editing workflow to get the most out of your images and to create a look or style to your images. The Develop module in Lightroom lets you adjust the color and tonal scale of your photos as well as crop photos, remove red eye, and make other corrections. All the adjustments you make in Lightroom are nondestructive. With nondestructive editing, your original file is not altered, whether it’s a camera raw file or a rendered file such as a JPEG or TIFF. Your edits are stored in Lightroom as a set of instructions
