Adobe Photoshop Lightroom : Introduction

Developed by photographers for photographers, Adobe Photoshop Lightroom allows professional photographers to manage, adjust and present large volumes of digital photographs.

This means you spend less time in front of your computer and more time behind the lens. This one day Adobe authorised course is designed to ensure you harness the potential of Lightroom to dramatically improve the way you manage digital images, from raw capture to creative output. You should have attended the Introduction to Photoshop course at Media Training or have an equivalent working knowledge.
