Next Saturday and Sunday, October 12-13th I’ll be teaching a free, on-line, 2 day live course on creativeLIVE! We all know that Lightroom is the ultimate tool for managing and editing images, but getting the most out of this unique program depends on your ability to navigate it quickly and efficiently. In this workshop, I’ll show you how to save time every step of the way, from importing raw images to exporting expertly enhanced photographs — and everything in between.

We’ll take a look at how to streamline the import process, create a simple organizational structure, and edit a shoot efficiently and seamlessly. You will learn the key tools to enhance your photographs, correct color and tonal values, customize your color to black and white conversion, and even add special effects such as selective coloring, split toning, and vintage looks.

I will also demonstrate how and when to move images from Lightroom into Photoshop for further enhancements, and outline how to easily create slideshows, photo books, and templates for printing. By the end of this class, you’ll understand key tools and strategies for streamlining your workflow while creating stunning images.

    The overview mentions organizational structure, does this refer to file structure (e.g., folder structure & file naming conventions) or just catalogs and keywords? Most books and tutorials do not spend enough time on how to organize the physical assets on the hard drive(s).

      Yes, I will definitely be covering file structure (folders and naming conventions) as well as catalogs and keywords, and selecting files, moving, backing up and working with off-line files. We will cover an incredible amount of information in these two days! : ) -j

    I will be in an art show Oct 12 & 13 so won’t be able to watch your live instruction for Lightroom 5. Is there another way to watch it later on Adobe site or elsewhere. Really want to see it. Still trying to decide if I should get PS CC.

      There is more information on the creativeLIVE site. They have their classes set up so that you can watch the live presentation for free, and can purchase the training to watch on demand.

    Looking forward to seeing your sessions Julianne. Will you please cover using the new smart previews and how best to have these on a laptop while maintaining the raw masters on a main computer – I’m still having trouble getting my head around the workflow…
    Thanks,

      Yes, most likely towards the end of the second day when we talk about the “crunchy bits”. : )

    Hey Julieanne,
    I’m enjoying the Creative Live Lr training. Is there a somewhere I can get the ‘cheat sheet’ you mention in the video?

    • By Julieanne Kost - 10:05 AM on October 14, 2013  

      You should be able to download it if you enrolled in the course.
