Introduction to Adobe Lightroom

Duration: Weekend course
Dates: Sat 24 Aug 12:00 - Sun 25 Aug 2024 17:00
Location: Digital Suite

Learn all about Lightroom, the streamlined photo-retouching and organisational software from the makers of Photoshop. 

Taking Adobe's photo-specific functions and putting them into one package, Lightroom is perfect if you want to edit and adjust your images easily. In this course you'll be introduced to the Lightroom interface and its layout and functions. You'll be taken through all stages of using the software, from importing, organising and rating files to editing and adjusting photographs, exporting finished files and print and web preparation.

Very informative and enjoyable to learn. Barrie explains in plain English which makes it easy to understand.

Learned a lot, very good presentation. Confident to use Lightroom now to continue learning.

Need to know

  • What to bring

Bring along notepaper, pen and some photographs on a USB drive (minimum of at least 10 photos, no maximum). It's best to bring RAW files for maximum flexibility but JPEG will work too. If bringing RAW files, please also bring a selection of JPEG files as a failsafe. This helps to avoid the rare but not unknown problem of RAW file incompatibility with Adobe software. If you prefer to work on your own laptop with your own version of Lightroom rather than our Macs, then feel free to bring it along.


  • Food & drink

Food and drinks are not allowed in the Digital Suite (a sealed water flask or drinking vessel is permitted). You are welcome to take a 15-minute break whenever suits.
