Course Description

This course unlocks the power of Lightroom as a teaching tool. Lightroom is part of the Creative Cloud package that is often overlooked and undervalued. Lightroom is much more than another version of Photoshop; it is a real Digital Darkroom that is both intuitive and responsive. 

Learning and Teaching Adobe Lightroom takes you through the fundamentals of digital photography and gives you the skills and experience to use Lightroom to manage, manipulate and share all your photos. The course is focused on teaching and learning, so the workshop is also crammed full of programming ideas and resources to incorporate Lightroom into your teaching.
