Lightroom 4 provides a comprehensive set of digital photography tools, from powerfully simple one-click
adjustments to cutting-edge advanced controls. In this FREE course Adobe Design Master and Instructor Martin Perhiniak
guide you through the new powerful features of Lightroom 4.
Every photographer needs three things: quick and flexible editing tools to make every photo the best it can be, a great organization system to sort through their images and ways to get their best images out into the world. Lightroom 4 offers all this and much more, making it the top choice for veterans and enthusiastic amateurs alike!
In this FREE introductory Lightroom 100 course, Martin starts by showing you how to update your images and catalogs from older versions of Lightroom. He also highlights the new features in the updated Develop, Map and Book modules including everything from map-based image organization to photo book export directly to blurb.com!
Next, in his presentation of Lightroom's Develop module, Martin demonstrates the Tone Curve and new Adjustment Brush modes. In this section, you’ll learn how to easily adjust Clarity, white balance and sharpen your image with the Adjustment Brush. You’ll also learn how to correct chromatic aberration and soft proof your images. Additionally, check out Martin’s explanations of both basic controls and keyboard shortcuts to help you streamline your workflow and increase your productivity.
Next you’ll see how to tag and work with geographically referenced photos in the Map Module. What better way to remember the correct sequence and locations of your photos than by cross-referencing them to a map?!
One of the most exciting parts of this course is when Martin shows how easy it is to take your best photos, lay them out and then effortlessly export, publish and preview them as a full-fledged photo book available on blurb.com!
Saving the best for last, Martin wraps up this course by showing how quickly and easily you can organize, playback, edit and export your video clips! Yes... you read it right! Video!?!... Video can now be handled directly in Lightroom thanks to the new Mercury Video Playback Engine available to all Adobe Creative Suite family members.
