Lightroom Review/Photoshop Primer Aug 18, 2018

8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Room 201, LSU College of Arts and Design Building.

This class is intended to refresh the material from the Lightroom 101/201 classes earlier this year as well as introduce key elements of Photoshop.  We’ll recap such Lightroom Library module features of import/export, keywording/filters and Develop module features of presets (using/creating/sharing), toning, local adjustments.  We’ll then move on to Photoshop covering an overview of the screen layout/menus, discuss several of the more common tools, and finish with layers/masking.

This class will be using the latest version of Lightroom/Photoshop CC.  Although not necessary to have for the class, it will be necessary that you are familiar with where certain elements exist in your version.  A checklist will be sent out prior to the class. Limited to 15 attendees.  Priority given to LPS members.
