- Learn what the various editing options are and how to use them
- Learn how to keep your original intention intact so photo editing remains the polish rather than surgery on your photos
- Learn how to create a slideshow, print and publish your photos on-line.
- Places x 8. - Typically 6-8 attendees
- In order for a class to go ahead, there must be a minimum of six clients booked for that particular date. Should there be insufficient interest, alternative dates will be offered.
This course teaches basic foundations of image transfer, cataloguing, organising and tagging photos so you can easily find images.
You will then go on to learn how to edit photos easily and make all the critical adjustments required to then export or print your images at various sizes and formats.
In practice, this course will also help you improve your eye for a shot as you become more aware of the improvements that could have been made in camera.

How you will learn
Alan is passionate about photography and a qualified photography tutor. He will engage you in discussion and be more than willing to answer as many questions as possible on the night.
Alan will demonstrate Lightroom through a projector and explain each topic and then you will have time to do in class practicals by replicating and trying for yourself the demo Alan has provided.
