Using Lightroom with Photoshop – When to use Lightroom, When to use Photoshop and when and how to use both.
This is a new class that I added for this winter and it will be similar to a popular class that I recently did for a big camera club in New England. In this class, I will cover when I use Lightroom only for my editing as well as when I use Photoshop only and also, when and how I use BOTH…which is often the case for many of my images. Students will learn how to seamlessly go from Lightroom to Photoshop and back (making the round-trip as it is called) and how to make sure your images are saved back to Lightroom and various ways to easily locate them afterwards and stay organized. There are some “gotcha’s” along the way which you will learn. We’ll also cover saving and exporting the files from Lightroom and specifically how to export a PSD or TIFF layered file and retain the layers. This is a hands-on class and students are encouraged to bring their own laptops so they can follow along. I will provide a thumb drive with sample images for class and students can also bring their own images to class for additional practice. Basic computer skills are required for this class – students MUST know how to operate their computer and locate files and how to perform basic commands such as copy and paste, save, save as etc. In addition, students must know how to import their images into Lightroom and have some familiarity with Photoshop and how to navigate and use the software however proficiency is not required.
This class will be taught at the Cape Cod Art Center in Barnstable. Click on this link for more information and to register https://capecodartcenter.org/classes-workshops/#
