Learn how to access, edit, and add to your photos from any device with the cloud-based version of Lightroom.
Upcoming Series

No classes currently scheduled

Lightroom is a cloud-based program, meaning that you won’t have to deal with maintaining your files because Adobe will store all of your originals on their computers. The beauty of this cloud version of Lightroom is that you can access, edit, and add to your photos from any device or log in from any computer. It is an alternative to the Mac Photos program and the Google Photos platform, but with much more powerful editing capability. The smartphone and tablet apps are well designed and make sharing photos with others quite easy.

SEE IMPORTANT NOTE BELOW ABOUT THE TWO VERSIONS OF LIGHTROOM.

The four-class series is in-person at DCP! Please view our COVID policies and procedures here. When you register, you will need to sign our COVID policy agreement and waiver. Everyone entering DCP is required to wear a mask at all times.

In this four-class series, you’ll learn:

  • How to migrate from Lightroom Classic, Mac Photos, or from a bunch of files stored on your computer
  • Understanding the Lightroom subscription model and cost of storage
  • How to add photos on your computer, from a camera card, or from a mobile device.
  • Working with albums
  • Flagging, rating and sorting your photos
  • Keywording and Lightroom’s own Sensei content recognition (spoiler: it’s awesome!)
  • Basic processing of your images for color, crop, brightness, etc.
  • Advanced processing of your photos using some powerful, Photoshop-like tools
  • Exporting and sharing your photos with others
  • Protecting your photos with a local copy and a separate cloud service
IMPORTANT NOTE

Lightroom comes in two flavors. This class is for the one just called “Lightroom.” If you want to learn about Lightroom Classic, this is not the class for you! Lightroom Classic operates quite differently, and we offer a separate class series for that program. To confirm which type of Lightroom you have, click on Help on the top toolbar, then About Lightroom. The heading should say “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.” If it says “Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic,,” that’s the wrong version for this class. This naming convention is something Adobe did a couple of years, and it is confusing to everyone!

  • Cost per person for the series is $175 early registration, $200 late registration.
  • This four-class series works with the software called “Lightroom.” SEE IMPORTANT NOTE IN THE OVERVIEW TAB ABOUT THE TWO VERSIONS OF LIGHTROOM.
  • Please see our other class series if you want to learn about Lightroom Classic.
  • This is a four-class series held at Dallas Center for Photography – 4756 Algiers Street, Dallas 75207.
  • Classes are from 6pm-8pm CT.
  • Advance registration and payment is required.
  • Maximum number of students is 15. Minimum number to make a class is 8.
  • You’ll need to bring your laptop and/or smartphone with Lightroom downloaded to each of the classes.
  • Parking is available in the DCP parking lot or along Algiers Street.

In over 30 years of shooting assignments for national magazines and corporate/stock photography he’s learned a few things and likes to pass it on. His favorite student review is “You remember what it’s like to not know”.

He also works one-on-one with clients to further particular shootings skills, organize their photos with Lightroom or work on projects like books and exhibitions. He still shoots occasional commercial jobs but is busy with personal book projects and running the expanding DCP.
