Lightroom Back to Basics

When: Tuesday February 21 2012. Time: 6:00pm – 9:30pm
Where: Ballantrae Community Development
17611 Mentmore Boulevard
Land O’ Lakes, FL 34638-7934

In response to several members asking if we could simply do something more basic, this meeting is designed just for that purpose. We will be taking a look at Lightroom from the beginners perspective.

If you can relate to any of these scenarios then this session is for you:

  • You have recently installed Lightroom but are really not sure of where to start.
  • Perhaps you’ve been using Lightroom for a while but every now and then “IT” does something to your files (like loses them).
  • All your thumbnails have the “?” icon on them and you don’t know why.
  • All your Folders in the Folders panel are greyed out and you don’t know why.
  • You think your images are stored IN Lightroom.
  • Your friend told you you needed Lightroom… and that was the end of the conversation.
  • You don’t know what a catalog is.
  • You do know what a catalog is but don’t know how it relates to your photographs.
  • You think you can remember where all your images are
  • You want to make great prints at home but don’t have Photoshop
  • You think you still need Photoshop

Lightroom can be somewhat overwhelming, as can any other software program, until you get a clear grasp of not only what it can do but also how to do it. And it always seems like everyone else knows exactly what to do.

This session is for the beginners to get their questions answered. If you don’t have any questions then come along anyway, you might discover something interesting.

We are renting a clubhouse and projector/screen for this meeting so there is a small fee to attend.
Register before Saturday 18th for the Early Bird price

    I fear it may be too basic, but I’m debating participation just to stay active with the group.
