With a digital camera, you can take thousands of pictures. The result? You have to look at thousands of pictures. There is no better way to view, manage, edit, and share your photographs than with the remarkable set of tools provided in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom. This application has segregated the most important elements of how pictures get seen, organized, edited, and used and has integrated these elements into an extraordinarily agile, powerful, and user-friendly application. This course will explore each of the seven Lightroom modules including Library (view and rate images, assign keywords); Develop (make robust global and local edits to your images); Map (see or mark where your photos were taken and link them to Google Maps); Book (design books that can be uploaded and printed through Blurb or converted to PDFs); Slideshow (create photo presentations with an option to add music); Print (send processed photos to a connected printer or create JPEGs that you can share in other ways); and Web (create HTML or Flash web galleries that can be uploaded directly to your website).

Students are required to bring a fully charged laptop computer to class with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom installed plus a minimum of fifty photo files to use as a classroom exercise library.
