Ian's Studio, Woodbank Works, Turncroft Lane, Stockport, Cheshire, SK1 4AR



This is a beginner session on how to manage all your digital images.  The session starts by looking at the difference between shooting JPG images and shooting RAW images, and the pros and cons between them.

The next section of the session covers naming conventions and filing conventions and why it is important to settle on a standard that works for you.

The final part of this session is an overview and walk-through of Adobe Lightroom.  Lightroom is the tool we recommend for managing and processing your images.

This session in conjunction with CR001 – CR005, CR007 – CR008, make up what used to be our “Introduction to Digital Photography” Course.  It is also the foundation session for our series of Adobe Lightroom training sessions.

This session may be taken as a standalone session or in conjunction with the other introduction course sessions or in conjunction with the other Lightroom sessions.  As with all Academy Events – printed training notes will be provided.

Suitable for: Beginners or anyone struggling to manage their ever-growing collection of digital images.  Not all cameras are capable of shooting in RAW mode, but if your camera is and you don’t yet shoot in RAW this session will help convince you to make the switch.  The overview of Lightroom is intended to be a very quick overview giving a flavour of what Lightroom can do.  For detailed Lightroom training see events:
