Exploring the Creative Cloud

Exploring the Creative Cloud
4 sessions • 12 hours

Get ready to successfully edit your digital photos using the powerful combination of Lightroom and Photoshop, commonly known as the Creative Cloud from Adobe software. In this four-part class, understand how to organize and manage your photos, import them into the Lightroom Library module, apply key words, and more. In the Develop Module, find out how to make not only basic, but more advanced edits to your images, including cropping, adjusting highlights and shadows, changing to black and white, fixing camera distortions, etc.

Some photos will need further editing in Photoshop, so we will be learning to use the basic tools, add layers, resize the image to specific proportions, and to remove unwanted objects. Finally, explore Lightroom software to export your edited photos for various purposes, including printing and posting on social media.

Please note: Participants will need to provide personal laptops as customizing the software, saving changes and settings, will need to be on your own work space. It is also highly recommended you have an external drive of 2GB or larger to save your work and build your photo file.  Prior to the first class, participants will be contacted with information about how to download and install the Creative Cloud on their own computers.
