These sessions teach the basic functions of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom® image editing software. Lightroom® can smoothe out the rocky road of file management for our digital photography needs. Learn to use the program's intuitive features that allow us to easily convert RAW files, sort, edit and organize large numbers of digital images.

Through a vast array of easy-to-use features, Lightroom® also provides a way to exercise creative control during the crucial 'development' stage in the digital photography process. One area where Lightroom® really shines is when we want to create strong collections of photographs, while also shaping their style.

In person sessions are a minimum of two consecutive hours for 195.00 cdn. total. Longer sessions can be arranged. Skype or Team Viewer sessions are 115.00 cdn per hour - one hour minimum. All sessions are confirmed with prepayment.
