    The Lightroom 2 Workflow Evening

    Presented by Mark Fitzgerald

    Lightroom is changing the way photographers work. Its intuitive interface creates a streamlined workflow that allows photographers to catalog, process, and output individual and groups of raw files much more efficiently than when using the Bridge/Adobe Camera Raw/Photoshop system. Join us for an informative evening as Mark Fitzgerald, author of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and Photoshop Workflow Bible leads us through the complete Lightroom workflow.

    In this session you will get a close look at the Lightroom workflow from import to output. You’ll see how files are organized and sorted, and some of the best methods for using keywords and metadata to find the file you need when you need it. Then you will learn to use Lightroom and the powerful Develop module to edit single files or groups of files quickly and efficiently. Finally, you will see how Lightroom and the three output modules are used to easily create slideshows, prints, and web galleries, and how to export files for other uses using the Export command.

    Mark Fitzgerald is the owner of The Digital Darkroom in Portland, OR. Mark is an Adobe Certified Photoshop Expert and author of Photoshop CS3 Restoration and Retouching Bible, and Photoshop CS4 After the Shoot. You can learn more about Mark at www.ddroom.com.
