The wonderful folks at Texas School have invited me to give a full day seminar on Lightroom and Photoshop on Saturday April 28, 2012 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM at the InterContinental Hotel and Conference Center in Dallas TX. Here’s some more detailed descriptions of the topics I’ll be covering:

10am – 1:00pm Revitalize your workflow with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4.

See how you can save time while managing your photographs from import to export – as well as everything in between. We’ll start by learning how to streamline the import process, create a simple organizational structure, and edit a shoot quickly; all using the Lightroom 4 Library module. Then, we’ll discover the key tools in the Lightroom 4 Develop module to enhance your photographs, correct color and tonal values both globally and locally, customize your color to black and white conversion, and even add special effects such as selective coloring, split toning and vintage looks if appropriate for telling your story. Then we’ll master how and when to move images to Photoshop for further enhancements and discover how to easily create slideshows, photo books, post on social media sites, and create templates for printing.

2:00 – 5:00 Photoshop Techniques for Photographers

In the afternoon session, we’ll learn how Adobe Photoshop can help you refine your images to get superior results faster than ever before. I’ll demonstrate my favorite ways to add creative techniques to enhance your photography and express your own personal style. We’ll discuss retouching techniques, textural overlays and special effects. You’ll learn how to sequence multiple images and composite photographs to create a stunning single image impossible to create in camera . Plus, learn Julieanne’s favorite shortcuts to make you more productive in both Lightroom and Photoshop.

This seminar is open to the public for $97. If you’re already registered for Texas School then you can attend the seminar for only $47!

    George deWolfe suggested I use your tutorials and I would like to know which you would recommend. Here is my situation: I am a pretty experienced user of Lightroom, but have not used photoshop at all – though I have purchased more than one version with good intentions! I want to continue using Lightroom for the many things it does well, but want to learn the parts of Photoshop that provide capabilities Lightroom doesn’t. Cloning is one, but primarily layers and some other creative options. I know little about Photoshop and in a way, need to start at the beginning, but would prefer not to dwell on the things I can do equally well in LR. Is there a particular tutorial(s) (for PS6 I suppose) that is tailored toward this situation? Thanks so much for your help.

      Hi Pat, The best advice I could give you is to click on the Lightroom and Photoshop tutorial links on this page and then see which might apply to you. They are grouped by topics so that should help.
