Lightroom -- Week 1 Review
Welcome to Clark Colleges Lightroom Class
If you do not have Adobe's Lightroom installed (or you own a purchased version) you can take advantage of Adobe's Creative Cloud Photography deal.
There are no previous product ownership requirements. You get Lightroom & Photoshop with additional free supplements. For example you can now edit your Lightroom photographs on an iPad or Android Tablet using a free app.
If you are still not certain that you want to commit to Lightroom & Photoshop, at the above web page link, at the bottom of the page, you may download a 30 day trial version of Lightroom and Photoshop.
Also note, that if you wish, you can purchase the software at full price and use it "forever."

The Class Lightroom Primer website portal page is located at http://uofgts.com/Lightroom/
In class we discussed "Calibrating you Monitor" At the least, you need to set the contrast and brightness of your monitor.
Details on how to do monitor calibration, can be found at this link http://uofgts.com/PS-P2Site/Calibration.html
Please read and watch the videos found on the "Things to do First" Tab http://uofgts.com/Lightroom/index.html
On that page is a link on how to set up your IPTC Metadata http://uofgts.com/Lightroom/metadata.html and how to apply the data to existing files in your Library/Catalogue
We went through the steps To Import Your Photographs into Lightroom using the "Import" module
I have just updated information in the "Import..." tab on the Input Module page of the website (makes much more sense now... ) http://uofgts.com/Lightroom/input.html
This Monday there is no class as it is Martin Luther King day, January 19. As a result the next class will not be until the following Monday on January 26. See You Then... If you have any questions, send an e-mail.
I'll send YOU another e-mail next week with a reminder of what you should bring to class... and maybe more "news." I'll also tell you what will be covered in the next class.
