Lightroom 1

Lightroom Classic 1 [Organizing]

Tuesdays 7 - 8:45 PM / Starting June 5 with Dave





Tired of unorganized photos and digging through folders to find them? 

In this hands-on 3-week class, you will be introduced to the basic workflow of importing, cataloging and organizing your images in Adobe Lightroom® .

The class focuses on the Library Module–  your first step to a complete photo management program.  

You will learn the most efficient way to:

• Structure your photographs into a file or folder management system and set this up on your computer
• Import images from your camera, hard drive, memory card reader, or other storage device
• Understand the best settings on import
• Rename images and folders
• Add information, select and preview
• Make your way around the Library interface – including previewing, selecting, and creating Collections
• How to organize an efficient workflow and begin the editing process
• Add metadata to keep your files safe online

The possibilities are endless using Lightroom® but this is the starting point to organizing and protecting your work and creating a system for retrieving your best images.


Required Materials:

  • Laptop

  • Lightroom Software Downloaded on Laptop before class (see details below)

The class is laptop-only. Please install Lightroom® Classic in advance of the class and be sure to arrive early to setup your workspace. 

Older Version of Lightroom are acceptable for the Lightroom 1 Class, such as Lightroom CC 2015 (Downloaded before October 18th 2017) and Lightroom 6, however, the newest version of Lightroom CC Classic will be the most up to date.

When choosing a Lightroom Plan, choose the Photography Plan (20GB) or Photography Plan (1 TB). Click here for the chart comparison of Lightroom Plans.

We hope to offer a class for the new Lightroom CC in the future.

Class will be held at the same day and time each week for three weeks and lasts 1 hour and 45 minutes. (i.e. a Monday 10 AM class will be held every Monday morning for 3 weeks)  If you have any scheduling conflicts, we will try our best to accommodate, just give us a call!
