Lynda - Lightroom CC Essential Training (Updated Feb 06, 2016)
Take what you know about Lightroom—whether it's a little or a lot—and kick it up a notch, with this essential training from photographer/teacher Chris Orwig. Lightroom CC brings this extremely popular photo-asset management, enhancement, and publishing program for Windows and Macintosh into the Creative Cloud, offering integration with the rest of the Adobe apps as well as access to Lightroom Mobile. There are more features to cover than ever before.
Chris starts with the Library module: the hub for importing, viewing, ranking and rating your photographs. Then he'll move to the Develop module and show how to make one-click enhancements, correct exposure, retouch distractions, and perform localized adjustments. Want to push photos to their creative limit, and share them with family friends? Chris also covers creating panoramas and books, slideshows, and custom print layouts.
